Thanks Terry!  I had a great day.  My son flew in for my birthday & we spent the afternoon visiting.  My daughter had a birthday dinner for the immediate family, which was very nice.  My 3 1/2 yr. old granddaughter was so excited!  It was. Lovely evening.  This morning, I realized that I am improving!  My grief is lessening.  It is not so oppressive, which is encouraging!  Recently I had the opportunity to view pictures of Robert during his last few months.  Now I can see how tired & worn out he was.  I think coming to terms with that, has helped me deal better with his passing.  This morning I am missing him a lot but it is a loneliness for him but not the deep pain.  Yes, there is a light at the end of the tunnel!  We can improve, but it is a very slow process.

Happy Birthday Ann!

So lovely that you shared what you did with us today. Lovely to have such close family as you seem to do. ANd its right that it is lessoning, feels a little strange to me as I feel it too, but it also feels right. Have a wonderful birthday and lots of fun xxxx
Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy

Thanks Terry & Sonya!  My birthday was far better than I expected & continued over into today.  It is very unusual for my son to be home for my birthday.  Yesterday & today were rare opportunities.  I m so glad that my grief is lessening.  It is still there but I am handling it better which gives me hope.  Thanks again, Ann
