Relay

Tonight is the Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society. I took a little nap this afternoon so hopefully I will be well rested as I'm sure I won't sleep much overnight. I'm hoping it will be a fun event.

Things are a bit foggy for me lately. I just kind of feel like I'm living in a haze. Nothing really gets me very excited or very upset. Im just pretty numb and feel like I'm about 15 seconds behind all the time. People keep telling me that is normal so I'm just going with it.

I'm simply embracing what comes at this point. If I'm hungry I eat, if I'm tired I sleep. When the tears come I just cry and then move on. I'm trying not to fight the various emotions that seem to be surrounding me.

Well I better go visit with my aunts before I head to the relay!

Happy Walking!
Jessie

Relays are so much fun but you will be very tried. I have been involved in the planning and also just walking till this year. I miss it. Good Luck

I know that the first few days after my mom passed away, it was all very hazy.

You are a wise and strong woman to have the confidence and courage to face the difficult emotions and let them happen rather than fighting them.

I remember so well the pain, and I keep you in my thoughts & prayers...

Good luck with the walk!
