I've been off of this blog for several days. I've been processing. One of my friends now has cancer. Another friend's mother died and I went to the funeral Friday. My dad is dying. And it is fall, a time when the leaves on the trees are dying. I'm not trying to be morbid. This is a season. It is a season that I am passing through. I won't stay here anymore than winter will stay. Spring soon will burst through the ground in all its glory. But as I said, it is a season and I am grieving for various losses.
I am also wondering what I will say or not say when I finally see my friend that has cancer, face to face. As I have been rather preoccupied, I’ve decided to reprint a great article from psychology today called, “What Do I Say When Someone I Care about Gets Cancer?” The author is Dr. Mindy Greenstein.
What Do I Say When Someone I Care About Gets Cancer?
Making a lonely, scary experience less lonely and scary.
