Processing

Back to work.

The distraction is lovely, if a little unnerving...when I left, I was way ahead of schedule. Go me! Now? I'm waaaay behind on several things. (If I owe you something, I promise I'll get it to you soon!) Scrambling to catch up, but happy for the work. The support of my colleagues has gone above and beyond what I could've expected, and I feel doubly fortunate to work with such great people who just happen to also be great at what they do.

This week?
  • Wrapping my head around work.
  • Trying to support my family long-distance.
  • Acknowledging that my frame of reference - in the broadest sense - has changed dramatically, and figuring out what to do with the new information.
  • Calling friends and family and taking them up on their offers to spend time together.
  • Crying. At really unexpected and awkward times, if the pattern holds.
  • Loving more. Bigger. Unconditionally.
Wish me luck.

Something to be shared in times like these.

Walking with Grief

Do not hurry
As you walk with grief,
It does not help the journey.

Walk slowly,
Pausing often:
Do not hurry
As you walk with grief.

Be not disturbed
By memories that come unbidden.
Swiftly forgive;
And let Christ speak for you unspoken words
Unfinished conversation
Will be resolved in Him.
Be not disturbed.

Be gentle with the one
Who walks with grief,
It if is you,
Be gentle with yourself.
Swiftly forgive;
Walk slowly
Pausing often.

Take time, be gentle
As you walk with grief.

-Celtic Daily Prayers
