Heavy stuff that can't be shoveled. . .

Have you ever felt that you were the nearest dumping ground? I kind of feel that way lately.

My brother in law is having family issues and calls almost daily. He will be in the States from Germany on Tuesday. That's when the "real" therapy sessions start.

My mother in law is having a disagreement with her sisters about the treatment of her 94 year old mother. This is a result of not speaking to each other about anything important for years! I just want to lock them in the closet and let them fight it out! Can I really fixt this? NO! Do I want to? YES!

My family is still reeling from the loss of my grandmother. This Earth will NEVER be the same!


All of the above issues deal with forgiveness and grief. Forgiveness and grief are both processes. However, you must be willing to work through the process in order for the situation to be resolved.

The neediness of these situations will eventually go away. Knowing that is helpful.

Doesn't it help so much that you are wise enough to know that "this too in time shall pass"

I have to say that I'm not exactly happy to be getting older, but I am happy to have the knowledge that comes with it. :-)
