Spent 40 hours in Chicago (former home 🏡) visiting one of my most favorite people @roshhughes for a girl’s weekend. Rosh is so awesome in so many ways, and she gifted me with a @leifsporck tile of my soul place 🍒⚓️, Leland. It brought tears to my eyes because it is such a gift to have a friend who is so incredibly thoughtful and just gets you ❤️ We had a great weekend of reconnecting. And we talked about grief. And loss. And our gratitude for having amazing fathers and having such a great relationship with our respective fathers. Even though I feel robbed in that my father died way to young, I am beyond grateful that we had such a beautiful relationship and we certainly packed in so many truly amazing adventures and memories and infamous stories into the 35 years in which he was with me. Some musings... 🔺 one might get an average of 3 days bereavement from work for loss of immediate family member⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔺 the societal statute of limitations on grief seems to be a year - at most. ⠀⠀⠀⠀
❓ Why is it that bereavement is limited to immediate family members? While not related by blood, I consider my close friends to be part of my family. Family is more than blood- it’s the awesome warriors in which you surround yourself. And the loss of a pet should be included in bereavement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❓who came up with this bull shit about 1 year to grieve? Obviously not someone who has experienced a profound loss. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️ 4 years into the loss of my father, and it’s still as fucking painful as the day he died. In fact, I’m some ways, it is even more so. It’s been over 4 years since I’ve seen him, laughed with him, and heard his voice live as opposed to watching the numerous videos I took of him telling some of my favorite stories during the last couple years of his life (these are treasures - I can watch them over and over again and still laugh my fucking ass off - my dad was HILARIOUS). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
▶️ Grief catches you off guard. Just when you think you are in control, you walk into Walgreens and see Father’s Day cards and it hits you like a tsunami - you’ll never have the opportunity to give your dad and funny Father’s Day card again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This one of the most epic sunsets I've seen in a long time. Now, I have to admit, we are seriously spoiled around these parts and have glorious sunsets every day; but occasionally there is a sunset that stands out. This day was one that stood out!
Laughter is the best medicine. @acjohnson Thank you for the wonderful winter weekend (cryotherapy!), sharing your cozy home, the lake tours, styling me out in winter coats & mittens, the endless am coffee supply, and the never ending life chats. 2018 is all about living in the moment. This weekend was a good start. Xox ❤️ #leland#traversecity#michigan
