Grief

Music and Healing


My husband was a musician.  I am so beyond thankful that I have videos of him playing/singing as well as all of his songs.  But, I typically can’t listen to them. It’s been too painful.  
Going to pour a glass of wine and give it a try. The point isn’t to make myself sad. The point is to begin to make myself face the things that I find too difficult or painful. I believe there will be a little bit more healing each time I’m able to do this. 
The first one is a song he wrote for me when we were in the middle of really hard times.  The second one needs no description. Who would have known that the words would become so real. Listen if you want and if not it’s okay.  Just felt like sharing.
