my new mantra
watercolor & pen
about the piece.
Now that I'm 10 months out from Lyra's death, I think people expect me to have mostly good days, and be back to normal. But my grief has not worked that way. One day can be good, and the next I feel like I'm kicked back to the ground. Some days when my grief or worry feels really overwhelming, I just have to keep telling myself to take a day at a time...or an hour at a time even.
