May 20 | I Will Survive
It's great to have the energy to do laundry. Or dishes. Or drive to the store. Or take the dog out to pee. Last night I did all those, and more.
It feels great to do, to be, to live.
I've known for quite some time that I have survived her death. The incident, the moment, is in the past. And I survived.
What I haven't known is how I was going to survive every day life without her. Her death is in the past, but her absence is in the present as well as the future.
It now appears I am going to survive the present and future without her. And that seems neither right nor fair. She deserves more than 8 months of mourning and grief.
I want the tears to still flow freely.
Most of all, I want my sister back.
