Dear Shannon,

You have no idea how timely & practical your advice is to me. I LOVE my grief. I revel in it. Shit, I’m so good, I should be able to make a living as a professional griever. (Surely the trump estate will need some for the orange thing’s funeral?! But I digress.) If it wasn’t for my daughter & my sense of humor, I would have been lost.

Still, you are so, so correct! Attitude is everything! Correcting the course of thoughts. If I would have just waited patiently, time alone would have done nothing but entrench me deeper! Thank you.
