The Bear Maiden

I haven't checked in on you in a while, but I'm glad you're still writing, still keeping the blog going. My thoughts are with you. I saw your posts from few days ago, and you're right; it's hard to know what to say sometimes to you, and to my upstairs neighbor. I know she hurts (it's been three months, today, actually) and I know some days are really really bad for her. She too, is overwhelmed by the paperwork. And sending out Christmas cards to people who don't yet know that Mr. Kip is gone. And all I can say to her sometimes is "Just keep moving, one step at a time". I feel inadequate telling her, and you, that I am continually sorry that you miss him, and I could try to fill that empty space with words... but I know that the words could never fill that space. That void exists. It Is. But I feel it's emptiness for her, and for you.

I will say to you, like I say to her sometimes... just keep moving, one step at a time. And know that his spirit IS there with you. Of that I'm certain.
