Today I am grateful for:

Letters received in the mail

that bring happy tears.

I haven’t cried happy tears in so long that it took a few breaths to recognize them as coming from a place of happiness, rather than sadness.

I have been one breath away from tears for several weeks now. Especially with Sunday’s Yahrzeit tomorrow, 13 days until the anniversary, and 15 days until the stone unveiling at the cemetery.

I am taking care of myself, reading, being gentle, meditating, expressing gratitude, focusing on healing, and crying when it bubbles up- letting it out- every messy, ugly, pent-up emotion that still haunts my soul is finding its way out of me and into the cosmos.

But happy tears?

So unexpected.

Jen- thank you, thank you, thank you. For the support you gave your Dad. You were there for him more than you realize. For calling him, talking to him. Sharing his sense of humor and love of music. You remind me of him so much with your goofy humor and mannerisms. He lives on in you, he’s with you always- at the cellular level- in your DNA. I am so happy that the two of you were able to come together and communicate in the last 10 years of his life on earth- it brought him immeasurable joy to receive your ‘on the way to work’ phone calls and to see you singing so beautifully with GCBR. He was such a proud papa fan. He loves you and is still with you through dreams, signs, and dragonflies. ❤️ Lisa

Be grateful

Express gratitude

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make someone cry happy tears.
