Grief, Loss & Comfort
All I can think about today is how much I am grieving the loss of my favorite presidential family ever. It's sad and if you are feeling the same way, I understand. It's normal.
My grief has a smidge of abandonment in it, though my love for the Obamas is still strong, deep & wide. Are you feeling sad today? And scared?
So many people have blacked out their avatars & cover photos. I have read that many people feel like America died today. And I understand those feelings, too.
Wanna know what I did today? I watched Christmas movies. And my son & I ate pizza and breadsticks. I read and watched the movies and out off the news until later.
I also prayed, but just didn't feel as connected as I usually do. So I am giving myself a day of sadness.
And then, I'll see how it goes tomorrow.
I do believe there is still reason for hope, but no one can maintain positive feelings all the time. I encourage you to just feel what you are feeling today.
Connect with those you love, and hang in there. In the weeks to come, I'll want to talk more about the long game. but for now, I'm just going to rest and be present with what I'm feeling. And spend time thinking about the Obamas, saying goodbye.
Love you guys!
