    Please join us; it does help to write about grief. Each time I do, the load feels a little lighter.

    I feel for you mom. We don't want to burden those we love who are already grieving, sometimes the oblique hints are all we can allow ourselves.

    I used humor with Gail. I explained, in answer to her questions, that my grief was cyclical. One day I would wake up, go about my business and be fine. The next day might be a little worse, kind of so-so. But the THIRD DAY, that one really sucked.

    It has become shorthand between us now. She knows what I mean when I say that today is a third day. She has third days herself, between losing the father she adored and losing her mobility (her dad used to say she never learned to walk, only to run).
