    I think you should go on the retreat too. The thing about the grief process is that it is something we "go through" and while it can be quite rough, we need to go through, not allowing ourselves to get stuck in any one phase of the process. Having things to do, with people who we want to be around is so healthy for us during grief.

    I read a book, "Will I Ever Be Whole Again".... I've read it twice, and started it a 3rd time. She is an amazing example of someone who understand grief and the "going through" process to the other side. There is healing on the other side, there is life. We just have to make sure we don't get stuck before we get there.

    Sandy, our hearts are grieving with yours. I wish I had the magic words to take away your pain, just know we care and are praying for the peace of heart and mind for you and your family. One of my favorite verses to "hang"on too is Isaiah 41:10"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God: I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand". ((((())))

    Sandy, you are such an amazing person. You are already taking the first steps in your life that is to be. Know that Earl could leave you because of all the love and care he had wrapped the house in...that and he knew you would be able to move slowly forward. Know that he is still by your side and you will feel the whisper kisses of his soul as it passes by you.

    Try the retreat and make something to honor Earl...what a great treat.....you are in my prayers...

    (((((((Sandy))))))) We love you dear.

    I found that doing normal tasks each day was therapeutic for me when my son died. It felt important to me to take time to really 'feel' each emotion and let it play out, then when I felt I had had enough, I could let go of that emotion. It takes time, and for each one of us our needs for grieving are different. I found solace when I got busy finding things to do for others. I volunteered, was watchful for service opportunities, and let myself spend time with friends and family. But it took time to get to that point. Gradually, the pain does ease and life will continue, and there will be joy again.

    You are dearly loved Sandy, and you are in our kindest thoughts and heartfelt prayers.
    with love, Sheri

    Sandy, it's good to hear from you. There will be many ups and downs in the days ahead but we're here for you whenever you need/want to talk, rant, or whatever. If you feel up to it, then the retreat could be a good distraction for you. Your friends will be there for you too. Prayers continue for you.
