MS: Swiss Cheese and grief…stay with it.

I was a block of Swiss cheese yesterday. Tears leaked from my holes.

Very early in the morning, that’s when it started…the leaks. Not until the day was done, did I look back, and see the source of my leakage. When I think of my brother, I am overwhelmed with sadness and it shuts me down. I didn’t want to give in to it, I wanted to be strong. Yesterday, I had things to do.

I should have stopped, sat down and stayed with the sadness. Instead, I kept moving; trying to run from it and… it chased me down. With every commercial on T.V. every stranger hugging in the street, every child in the Revco; I cried. Sometimes I only leaked, other times I poured, but, all day I did this.

I should have just stopped in the morning, and stayed with it. Maybe then…just maybe, my day would have been different.

Stay with it.
