Planning ahead -

I go to my Documents planning to create a new folder and file for Permission to Breathe.   When I do it, I am informed I already have a folder, and sure enough there it is under Books.  I remember when my mother died how much I wanted an armband to let people know I was fragile.  I must have created a folder then, and then, forgotten it when I got sick.  Now, again, I begin.

If you have any thoughts on grieving and giving permission, let me know!!

I remember when Chris's fish died.  I took him to school as it was a CTBS testing day but he wouldn't get out of the car.  When I spoke with his teacher, she said to let him go home and grieve.  There would be no greater gift for him, and so, today, if you need to cry, or sit alone or with another, please do.  Honor your feelings without apology.   Grieve!
