Another Night Out and Book Recommendation

What a rainy windy day! The weather outside feels like a collage of April and October. However, we didn't come across any mud. :P We noticed sunshine peeking out at us after several quick and dramatic rainstorms. What a good day. I accidentally overslept and missed services today (oops.) Will try again next week. We celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday today and dined at Red Lobster. I ordered the crab legs again. Tasty! Thank goodness Steve and I worked out prior to eating out. I may need to do a little more exercising to offset the complimentary dinners. :) I am grateful. I should almost rename this blogsite "The Grief Blog," because that's what's on my mind so much lately. But it would be unnatural if I didn't grieve. There's a wonderful book I purchased recently entitled On Grief and Grieving by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler. It's absolutely comforting and wonderful. The authors completely understand what's going on with me now. The authors affirm your grief, discuss the stages, and provide examples on how to move forward. I highly recommend this read for anyone who has ever lost a loved one.
