111: Not a good day. Work is wearing on me. I'm feeling confined even though I really don't want to go anywhere. I'm feeling worn out as well. So what do I have to be grateful for. I am grateful for having these feelings. It's okay not to be okay. It's the sad days that balance out the joy that comes from most days.
112: I'm still feeling "meh." A co-worker's mother passed away yesterday. She had been battling Congestive Heart Failure for a while now. I feel for my co-worker. Losing a parent is hard. That Mother/Daughter relationship is a special bond (well, for me it was) and not having mom around can be rough. I'm grateful to have gone through that experience though. Jerry and I lost all our parents within 18 months. One after another. I don't know how we did it, but we did. We have use some dark humor to ease some of the pain. Lots of "your momma" jokes and if I see a monkey or a gorilla saying "I miss my dad.." I'm thankful that I can remember them like that on a daily basis.
