Normal Tuesday

Up at 7 am and then off to my Grief Support Group at 9 am. It was nice and sunny when I headed over there this morning but when I came home it was all overcast, but still warm outside. We had a new lady (Betty) at group today. I'd say she was in her 80's. Just lost her husband of 40 years from lung and bone cancer. He was her second husband, but it was easy to tell when she told us about him that he was the love of her life. She was so sweet. Another lady brought her and came back to pick her up after group. Don't know if it was a neighbor, friend or caregiver. As they were walking out, I heard Betty tell the other lady “The people in the group are so nice. I'm looking forward to coming back next week”. Made me feel good because she had told us how lonely she was sitting around even though she has friends and family, she doesn't get out much. I always feel so bad for new members because I remember when I was new. The grief is so new and you are so numb and you feel so lost. I'm glad she found us. The “lunch group” went to Cathy's Deli. We always have such good stories and we laugh a lot when we go to lunch. I'm so lucky to have these friends. Hiker was happy to see me when I got home. She loves to “help” me put the trash cans out and walk up to the mailbox. Then she got on the sofa a couple of feet away from me and went to sleep. No dinner or anything else for me tonight. I have to go for my annual blood work tomorrow morning so my doctor will have the results when I go to see him for my annual check up on March 5th.
