I have been attending a weekly support group since September 2017. Joining the group was the best decision I could’ve made for my grief.
When my mother passed away, we began to receive a monthly newsletter from the hospice organization that supplied my mother with her equipment. The newsletter included the information for the support group they offered. My father and I would toss every single one of those letters away. We…I wasn’t ready to face that. Going to a support group meant I was acknowledging that my mother was dead. I didn’t care to acknowledge that truth yet. So, in the trash those letters went.
Over the summer I began to talk with some of my friends about their grief stories. (Those stories and that project is in the works) The topic of support groups came up time after time. “Did you go to a support group?” I would ask. Most of the time, the answer was no. But I was curious and I began looking for a support group near me. “I’m just looking.” I would say to myself. It doesn’t mean anything.
When I finally found a cancer bereavement group, I sat on that info. It took me nine months to finally get the courage to drive to the location, walk through the door, and sit in the room with complete strangers. I was scared, anxious, nervous, scared (because saying scared once isn’t enough) and felt completely exposed. What I realized, almost immediately, was that the people in that room understood me completely. Suddenly, I was no longer so lost or so scared. I had a support group.
I cannot express how important a support group can be for grief. I highly implore anyone who is going through grief to find a support base. Whatever might work for you. This is what has worked for me. I am very thankful for my group. This is grief.

Age does NOT limit your health. Yes your metabolism slows as you get older, yes your joints might not allow you to move as fast as you once did, and yes it might get harder to workout. BUT look at my beautiful mother. I won't say her age but I'm almost 30 so do the math 😉 she looks AMAZING! Now many of you might think, "whatever, she's blessed. She's just one of the lucky few." Whoa....back up.....before you place judgement on appearance alone let me tell you something you don't know.
My mother is 5'5''. She married my dad in her early 20's. (Prime time for fast metabolism) well she weighed 180lbs. Then she had babies! She was overweight till she decided she no longer wanted to live that way.
Now she is a grandmother and weighs in at 105lbs.....Shes had 4 surgeries on her abdomen. She's survived almost dying through child birth in an emergency C section, got through a gallbladder surgery bc of Gallstones (back in the day they cut you 6in across your stomach), survived bowel obstruction surgery, and then had a 7" diameter tumor that caused her to get a hysterectomy.
She has NOT had an easy go around at life. She had not been handed anything.
But here she is fit and healthy as ever as a mother, wife, grandmother. Why....how?! Something called HARD ASS WORK. My mom and I have both been through more misfortunes than the average person. We have EVERY reason to be filled with excuses. Yet we push on despite our pasts. We work our asses off to maintain our weight and appearances.
My mama is my inspiration. She is absolutely uplifting in all that she does, all that she is, and all that she's been through. Let her be an icon for people who believe age hinders them from being healthy. If I can do it, and she can do it.......what's stopping you?!
