Grief Class

To night in my grief class I read my letter to Chris. It was the hardest thing I have had to do so far in this class. I was in tears most of the time, but I got it done. The leader of the group said he was beginning to see some light behind my eyes that wasn't there 8 weeks ago when I started the class. I was told the letter was beautiful by more than one person. I still don't have that instant relieve from writing the letter, but I am glad I have stuck the class out. Chris will always be a big part of my life. He was a beautiful gift from God who I will always treasure.

I don't think that instant relief is realistic but I do think that activities such as writing letters to a loved one is therapeutic. I think anytime you feel like it, you should do so.
