It is never easy to deal with the grief of a friend. The best thing is to say that you feel deeply for his loss, and to let him know that if there is anything that you can do for him, to let you know. Other than that, attend the funeral, make a donation if one was requested and allow him to grieve in the manner he needs.
Well I have somewhat got out of my funk of being down but things haven't been the greatest. My boyfriend's,I guess you could call him, mom died Monday. I have spent the last week on the phone with him trying to be supportive and really don't think I have been much help. I have not had to deal with death as of yet and I really think I am doing a poor job at being supportive for him. Also my best friends mom is dying of cancer and she could die any day. She is only 54 and such a wonderful lady. It kind of put me back in my funk and has had me not wanting to get out of bed. Thanks to aunt flo at least I had a reason other than that to not take appts. It just gets rough sometimes when I do not want to deal with anyone but the phone keeps ringing. It is never anything against the gentleman that call but lately I just needed some time to myself. Then I feel like I have neglected everyone and start to feel bad about it all. To any men out there that read this, do you all understand that we sometimes need time to ourselves? I try to keep up with the emails as best I can but the phone calls sometime are just something I need to set aside for a day or two. I do not want to talk to any of you when I am not my cheerful self. I always want you to see me at my best and when I feel I am not I just do not answer my phone. Is that bad of me or fair to the men? Anyway Happy Holidays everyone and remember this is a time to be with the ones you love. I am hoping that I have that for Christmas beyond my children which always brings a smile to my face.
