Grief. It comes in waves. If we don't feel it now, it will come strangely. So many mechanisms can stop the trickle of grief. Details. Funeral arrangements. Flights. Fights. Food. Sometimes we might not even get to it, so it's important to be present with it as much as possible. We're taught to stifle tears, to be given something to cry about, to buck up. But - there will always be a backdoor that grief will fall out of. Maybe it's sarcasm, maybe it's 5 lbs, maybe it's picking on the love in our life. So, the lesson here - feel it.
