No escape by Lawrence
Progress Report number 3 Christmas 2013.
I have just returned from Disney in Florida where I tried to use Mickey to help me overcome my intense grief at losing my deeply cherished wife suddenly on Christmas Day 2012.
I regret to say it was a “NO Contest”, all it did was to make me mourn and grieve more than ever for my lost love, and I joined the widows and widowers following behind their families with sad lonely looks on their faces.
We had made many visits to Disney with our children and never noticed those poor people and now I am one of them, it made me feel every one of my Eighty five years.
Seeing all the young couples holding hands with screaming happy children made me incredibly jealous, and then I nipped myself to remember the seventy wonderful exquisite years we had together, a lot of the time in Disney and I quietly thanked God.
Needless to say I will never do it again, the pain was intolerable and I realize you can’t run away from unbearable grief, you just have to live with it.
