Grades K-6 Here is another grocery store game, called "Grocery Store" how original. For example, the player could say "I went to the grocery story and bought some apples. For example, the second player can say, "I went to the grocery store and bought some apples and a bag of potato chips. The game continues until someone forgets one of the items.
Missing Jim Continues So many days I have meant to write an update. But my normal seems to shift and I am unable to morph into whatever character I am now supposed to be. What is normal for anyone? Who is really normal?
Jim has been gone days. There are times I can barely recall him. His voice, his touch, his laugh, his smell, his everything all seem distant and strange. As if we were never married and I never had him as mine.
Never had him to hold so close and feel, touching his skin and feeling his love. Never had him to count on as my steadfast partner. Never had the knowing looks and the quiet moments alone. Never had arguments and make ups. Never laughed out loud or sang together. Never planned for a future that would somehow dissipate like vapors blowing in the wind.
The guilt, the regret and the sadness take over involuntarily and my emotions are left in shambles. Certain songs, certain places, certain thoughts….
I live in my own mind. I choose to share or to hold fast onto my loss, my own pain and my own remorse.
I can be doing a myriad of things and suddenly I see Jim, as he was his last week, and I am devastated all over again. I can be lying in bed and recalling a conversation we had years ago, long before his diagnosis.
Then, I can try to recall something specific and my memories will let me down, keeping me from whatever I am searching for. Perhaps to protect me or possibly because the pain is too strong and my own mind knows how to protect me from myself. I never know which person I will be. Sometimes I can be the stoic, strong widow.
Sometimes I can be the pathetic post traumatic stressed caretaker. That person is long gone, never to be seen again. The outside world expects more. That is another word: I have discussed this before yet expectations stick around. I am expected to carry on, remembering Jim and being the Mom and the Dad with little or no emotional recoil.
I mean Jim was sick for so long, I would think you would be ok by now. These are actual words said to me less than 6 months after he passed.
More actual words said to me, this one by a friend dealing with a particularly difficult divorce. Surprisingly, I am able to compartmentalize and understand comments that can sometimes seem so callous and hurtful. I know I am one of the guiltiest of all when it comes to putting my foot in my mouth.
Being one of those people that tells it like it is has its benefits, but it also has consequences and at times, hurtfulness. As far as my emotional well being, it is a work in progress and will continue to be for a very long time.

Saudade is also associated with Galicia, where it is used similarly to the word morriña (longingness). Yet, morriña often implies a deeper stage of saudade, a "saudade so strong it can even kill," as the Galician saying goes.
Morriña was a term often used by emigrant Galicians when talking about the Galician motherland they left behind.
