In New England, fall seems to arrive overnight. At least this is what I’ve been told and what I’ve noted during my time here. Its a rather quick transformation, not unlike life after loss, one day you have them, one day you don’t.
Today is a chilly fall day, one that makes me want to crawl back into bed only to snuggle the day away. Unfortunately, I can’t tell my children to fend for themselves today. It just won’t work.
Shortly after loss, there were many days I wanted to do just that, but instead of snuggling the day away, I would have preferred to spend the day sobbing my guts out. I never did, at least not in the horizontal position. There were many times I cried the day away while upright, but ultimately, I felt getting up was better than not.
I’d like to believe that facing the day opened me up to the beauty of life, once again. I’m now aware of just how much I would have missed out on if I had stayed in bed. I’m glad I got up. If I hadn’t, I might have missed this…
