Today is one month since my dad died. Its been hard. I dont think I'm dealing with the grief of it or of the passing of my mom on nov 13 2009. I just dont think it has hit me yet and I'm kinda waiting for it to hit me and scared that when it does its gonna hit me hard. It's been a very hard couple of months. I miss them like crazy.

It's been a little over a month for me. I miss him dearly and in the beginning I just thought he was on vacation or in the hospital, but as more time passes I am missing him and finding myself crying and thinking about him alot. This is the longest not talking to my Dad. I look to my Dad and God when times get difficult, if you want to chat my email is

Stay strong and God Bless you
I think in the beginning there is so much going on, so much to do and deal with. That might go on for a while. For me, I tried to stay busy because I didn't really want to deal with the thought of not seeing my mother again, not being able to talk directly to her. You might be forced to be strong for so many other people. I come from a huge family, so I found myself being forced to play hostess to other people's grief and not have so much time for my own. I don't know the answer. It does come, but I think it's different for everybody. There isn't a right way to grieve. I'm so sorry for your loss. Take your time and deal with this anyway you have to.

Dear Nina,
You have my deepest sympathy.Grief is said to be a necessary part of the healing process and learning to adapt to the new situation. it may provide a necessary emotional release. the bible contains some practical advice. Ecclesiates 3:1,4 in part says "there is an appointed time even....a time to weep." Tears of grief is nothing to be embarassed about. crying may serve as an emotional release. "Draw close to God and he will draw close to you."(James 4:8). Praying to God about how you feel will help you to draw closer to him. I hope that this will help you.
