Blown away by your piece and what you graciously share with us, Megan! So much depth in this, in the very literal meaning of crossing a border to allowing yourself boundaries that you never set before. Processing grief and continuing without it overwhelming all of you. There's a great deal of wisdom in this, and your voice shares such vulnerable emotion. Even the mention of the Scrabble game as a distraction, the importance of it perhaps, was such a strong, striking image. This was heart-wrenching to read at times, because when we allow those flood gates to open, sometimes we can't help with the pain and hurt cascades over it. We can't always stop it. We wonder why, when we gave so much love, so selflessly, and that was just returned, or is gone.
Incredibly emotional piece, Megan. Sending all my support.
