    Grief and sadness

    Not wishing to hijack any recent threads, I just wanted to point anyone on here who may be going through - or knowing that they may shortly have to go through - a tough time, to the following -

    Grief is good by Hilary Hart - here (it waffles a lot, but the gist is very good)

    http://www.hilaryhart.org/articles/grief-is-good.html

    and Sheryl Sandberg's letter to her husband who died after falling off a treadmill in a Gym - here (especially the bit about "kicking the sh*t out of plan B).

    I am unashamedly crap in similar situations but found these very helpful and hope they help someone.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it, hump it or learn from it then piss on it and walk away.

    "HOSPITALITY" - the art of making guests feel at home (when you wish they were).

    "Never say in grief you are sorry he is gone. Rather say, in thankfulness, you are grateful he was here"

    I've buried a granddaughter, a grandson and a mother in the last few months. I'm happy for Mom. I'll grieve for the grand kids -as well as my son now 31 years gone- til the day I die.~Muir
