The World Continues...

I wholeheartedly believed that this senior colleague of mine didn't mean any harm.
That was why I just laughed when she asked me innocently, "So, your grandma finally passed away?"

I got faint tears on my eyes when I laughed. The tears were not because I hated the question. They were because I still missed my grandma a lot.
But, I know that life goes on. I just have to make my brain and my heart agree at each other at this moment. And I am sure they will.
At least I know my grandma always remembers March 8.

Thank you my friends for your sympathy. Thank you for your prayers.

I quoted this story for you all from my favorit book: Ex and The City by Alexandra Heminsley. It's not about Losing Someone. But, the pain -she describes- so perfectly illustrates how I've been feeling for the last couple of weeks.

Getting dumped is grim.
But there's something particularly awful about the way that life just carries on around you after it's happened. No one's noticed your entire life has swung on its axis: the world continues to turn, the stuff to do keeps mounting up, and the bills still have to be paid. Disgraceful. (p 61)
