leeann Posted July 9, 2008 Report Share Posted July 9, 2008 I recently revisited a place my folks loved more than any other place on earth. It was the first time I had been there since they passed.It was a bittersweet challenge. And.. I just sobbed on their beach at dusk.. yup right out loud... in front of the kids.. Hub wrapped me up in his arms and son circled closely nearby in silence. Daughter said she was sorry the beach made me sad. And I had to immediately correct her and let her know.. I'm not really sad... I just miss them and these tears will help me heal. I did let her know that it is never a good idea to judge grief tears negatively... as they really are a positivething that represent healing. (I think she understood this. But when the opportunity arises to speak to her about it again.. I'll make sure.)She responded by saying "I think they are here with us." And.. I think she was right.I think I will be fine if I am so blessed to go there again. I feel like it is somehow "out of my system" so to speak and that the pleasure they gained from that place will end up being a generational experience.Any of you had this or a similiar experience? How did it go for you?leeann Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
