A Good Day At My Grief Group
Took Hiker for a 1.5 mile walk before I went to my grief group this morning. There is a ditch that we pass by on our way to the park and there was some water in it this morning. There was a couple of ducks “swimming” in the ditch looking for bugs to eat. Hiker noticed them before I did. She stopped an sat down to watch them. I let her watch them for a few minutes. She was good and did not try to chase after them. They looked at her and then went right back to eating. I thought the grief group was an especially good one today even though there were very few of us there. I sometimes think the conversation is better when there are less of us as it seems that people seem to speak up more if there are not a lot of people. I really enjoy going to group every Tuesday. It's nice to get out and to be with people who understand what I am going through. I sometimes wish we met twice a week. After group, DeDee, Ruth and I went to lunch at Alamo for some Mexican food and some girl chat. Came home to find my Hiker girl waiting for me. She always gets so excited when I come home. I took her for a short walk down to the park. When we got to the ditch, she stopped to look for the ducks but they were not there. She knew exactly where they had been. Was cooler here today. Only got up to around 60°. We've been having 80° days for the past week, but there is supposed to be a storm blowing in tonight.
