The Minnesota Gathering

What a wonderful weekend - lots of laughter and some tears. Great food, fun and really hot, humid weather. It is amazing to meet people in person to whom you feel so close but have never met outside the virtual world of the world wide web.

This was the special weekend that brought the widows/widowers from GROWW to Minnesota. How comforting to be with others who have walked this painful road. There are things we did not need to talk about because it is in our eyes and forever in our hearts. It filled my spirit to sit with those who have held and supported me through the early, hard days of widowhood. It filled my heart to be able to hug and say, "thank you" to those that made such a difference in my healing. A worthwhile weekend; another blessing on the journey.
