We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there."

I certainly have counted the months. Have been focused on the dates.


The 1st few months just trying to cope and survive and handle my responsibilities.  Other monthly anniversaries feeling some of the trends in this grief journey.


So last month was the one-year anniversary. A couple of weeks later I went to CWW.


I didn’t think that the one-year anniversary would be as symbolic as it has been. I’m starting to feel some changes. I’m starting to discover my new normality. I’ve taken every part of my journey as it comes – what choice do I have?


But I do feel like I’ve just gone over some kind of threshold. Not sure what it is. But I do feel like there are some good winds of change approaching.

i understand mac 1st year is coming up for me as well. and i do feel it will be some kind of threshold as well.   It's a tradition in many cultures to celebrate the one year anniversary of a loved ones death, i so get why now, all the 1st we went through, all the sorrow.  But also all the joy and memories that can bring so much healing, not just to the widowed but the whole family.  Hugs mac and thanks for sharing.

I am at 14 months and just very recently started to feel the same way.  I'm not sure what's ahead but I do know it might possibly be good:)
