I saw my doctor the other day and he asked me to grade the pain that I was feeling on a scale of 1 to 10. That way, he would know the level of pain that I was experiencing.
The grief that I feel concerning Peggy is like that scale. One day, I might be experiencing a 9 level of grief and the next day, it will be a 4. It constantly bounces from 1 to 10.
I heard a song the other day and my grief level shot up to 10. The song was..I'll be seeing you.
Yesterday my grief level was about 3 but today it is back up to 9.
When I called to talk to Peggy this morning, she was in exercise class and a thought crossed my mind.
Her life is going along just fine without me in it.
I am the one who is managing a grief level of 9 today because.....
I remember and Peggy has forgotten.
I Love You Today, Peggy!
