What sad feels like

Sunday, August 13, 2017

Sad.
Barb's father has died.
It was not unexpected.
I didn't know him except through her.
And still, it felt like a punch in the gut.

My first reaction was to stuff something soft and gooey in my mouth.
I didn't.
But it was a dramatic example which taught me something about my reaction to stress and sadness.

So thank you to Barb's dad. You taught me something about myself, even in passing. I know that you were a wonderful man who will be sorely missed.

    I'm so sorry for Barb's loss, and for yours. How very special that he taught you something important about yourself.

    OH MY GOODNESS. HUGS HUGS wrapping you my dear Phyllis. What a sweet blog to write. I so appreciate it! Dad was like that. He taught lessons and didn't even really know it.

    HUGS and thank you for the tribute to my beloved father. Wonderful man and wish you had known him.
