Like most of the country, I was horrified, sobbing, and incapacitated upon hearing the horrible news
from Texas when I returned home, from my Grandsons kindergarten graduation. As we were enjoying
the promotion and congratulations on the playground in the warm sunshine, at his elementary school,
families in Texas were waiting for the worse news a parent could ever receive.
By the next day, my grief turned into rage and then to numbness the next.
Currently, I’m doing my best to appreciate my loved ones and cherish the joy they bring to my life
every day while it feels like the world is burning down all around us.
“Remind yourself that you can possess two emotions at once.
You can hold space for both gratitude and grief. Let them co-exist.”
