My Journey of Grief.....

by Brenda McBride
(Temecula, Ca. USA)

My name is Brenda. I lost my dad two years ago, due to cancer. My journey has been very hard, very overwhelming, with an engulfing current that has taken over me. My emotions had gotton the best of me. I was in disbelief. I could not process the passing of my dad, no matter how much I tried. I couldn't eat, sleep, or function to my normal capacity. His absence was too much to bear. His loving spirit and gentle ways were truly missed. I didn't think I could get over this huge loss. How could I go on without my loving father. The days and nights seemed to all blend together, without any meaning. The one person I always trusted and respected was now gone. My wonderful father gave so much to us all. I felt alone and lost. I look forward to seeing him again one day when my time on earth is done. I know my dad will be there waiting for me with open arms.
