It’s been a month since my father-in-law passed away. This morning, my wife and I were taking about his passing and the hurt, sadness, and gap we feel. She asked when the hurting stops and how I got through things when my parents died.
I shared that I still hurt – probably always will – but that this new phase is kind of the “new normal” in our lives. Things are different, we hurt terribly, but we press on – cherishing the great memories. We are so thankful for that wonderful, final night we had with him and need to realize that we really won’t get any answers to the questions that linger in our minds.
Still, this new normal sucks.
