Processing

Funny word, “process.” It means so many different things. Tasks are completed through a process. When food is messed with and preserved and whatever, it becomes processed. When computers are trying to work, they’re processing. When people don’t do things according to convention, they tell you that they have their own little process.

When someone passes away, you have a funeral procession…but before that you have to process their passing, and that’s what I’ve been doing this weekend.

A close friend of mine passed away Thursday night, and it’s been a very hard thing to deal with. It’s hard to believe it, to understand it. It’s hard to know what to think or do.

I’m okay now, for lack of a better word.

I want to thank you for being such a loving and understanding community. I am going to try to get back to blogging like normal starting this afternoon. A familiar routine may be just what I need, and it will be nice to blog about silly things and not have to think for awhile…but I wanted to tell you about this, in case I don’t seem like myself in the next few days. I’m still, as alluded to, processing things.

  2. Heartbreaking all the young people who are dying. In the span of a month 5 people have passed away from my high school or our neighboring school including one of my best friends. For me, her funeral service made the processing easier because it was such a beautiful service and it had a sense of finality so my brain could stop questioning whether this has really happened or not. I hope you are able to get that same sense of closure and that you can celebrate your friends life to see all the good they still managed to accomplish in their short time. *hugs*
