All Saturday evening/night I was grieving Grandma Hale, and feeling useless.
Part of my grief was just dealing with something "new": the Hales invited us over for Sunday Lunch, and I was having to deal with the thoughts and feelings that came with it. This was a first. My brain said "NO!" ..."I sit with Grandma so that the Hales can have other people over for lunch...that's what I do- it is one of the things that makes me useful...the McKee family going over for Sunday Lunch is just not "right"." Sigh.
I know that she's in a MUCH better place, with no more tears, no more pain, with long lost loved ones- Grandpa Pete, her folks, her siblings, her friends. And yes, this knowledge makes me very happy.
So, Saturday night Mom, Dad & I watched "Tuesdays With Morrie". Mom and I watched it a LONG time ago, we tried to get Dad to watch it when his folks were going down hill, but he would not....it was probably just as well...we enjoyed it together, and cried through it and afterward. We have so much to learn...I have so much to learn. Lots of growing to do. Maybe I should read the book.
