Widowhood is not for the faint of heart. It’s a grueling battle to be appropriate, especially in business dealings, when tears are inappropriate. I’ve come a long way but still have a fair bit to go. Self-expectations of being farther along the grief journey or tougher than the tears don’t help fight the battle. So, everyday I just try to do better, be better and I leave it at that. And still carry Kleenex everywhere, just in case.
I couldn’t bring myself to post the very “last” (by my reckoning), picture of us ever on Instagram because it is just to bittersweet. I post it instead on my blog for those that like tearjerkers.
Some will notice that I have avoided the word “fashion” in this latest https://edgehillherbfarm.blog/ post. It was deliberate. #truestory.
