  •  This does not fit TGR formal schedule (4+ / 0-)

    but I plan to write a diary on the first anniversary of the death of my wife.  She died in my arms on September 17 last year.  At least I will try to write.  I am still struggling to deal with all that has gone on the past two years.

    •  do you want us to ask Kitsap River (4+ / 0-)

      if she will give you that date?

      I don't know whether 9/17 is a significant date for her--she may be willing to give it up.

      •  That will be OK. You can republish to TGR (3+ / 0-)

        if you like.  I don't even know if I will be able to write it.  I did not know if I was going to be able to write the one for our anniversary on August 19, then after I wrote it I looked at the "Post" button for an hour or two before I was able to click it.  I literally did not know if I was going to be able to publish it until the last minute.  I am still reeling from the amount of emotional energy that writing it took out of me.

        The next one may be even harder, so I cannot guarantee anything.   If I write it, I will publish sometime on the seventeenth.

          if you find you're able to write it.

          That reminds me - I still have your last one in the queue (was saving it in the event of a no-show). I'll republish it now, so check it for new comments.

          Join us in the Grieving Room on Monday evenings to discuss mourning and loss.

          •  i saw that and was not sure what to do (0+ / 0-)

            the diary was published because I saw it and commented in it, but I did not want to delete it from the queue
