It’s the International Day of Women. I am glad there is another marker of this day that I can look to because it is also the anniversary of my husband’s death.
And even though the days pass (Google informs me it’s been 1826/these five years), there is still not a day that passes that Sam isn’t on my mind. The days are easier though. For any mourner who reads these words, the days do get easier.
I am still writing about the process of grief, of loss, of all the things that are connected to it.
But today I am also looking out with a firmer resolve to take care of the days I might still see.
So, in honor of women today, my Friday’s Five asks you to do this small thing:
Think of five females who have made your life better. Call them, text them, write to them. Let them know.
And as we journey on in this weird and wacky world, may we make it easier in some way for someone. Today.
