I know why I’ve been making so much soup

Grief is a funny thing.  At times grief makes you think nothing is wrong, that nothing has really changed & that you are completely okay.  You sit there & wonder why you are not sad or why you don’t feel much of anything at all.  Then you randomly find yourself crying as you fold laundry. 

If I had known

At times I belive that I could have prepared myself for dealing with death somehow by reading the right books or the right blogs.  I realize I am deluding myself with this thought.  That nothing would prepare me for this & that I need to give myself a break & just feel what I feel.

Today I can admit that I feel sad.  That there is nothing anyone can do about it.  That there isn’t really much I can do about it, except to feel sad & go about life.

Creamy Vegan Broccoli Soup

Yesterday’s comfort soup was I Love Vegan’sCreamy Vegan Broccoli Soup“.  I followed the recipe as is & it was indeed delicious.  It was green (requirement after the Curry & Tomato soup both being red), it was creamy,  it was warm & if you should forget to add the Broccoli .. totally forgiving of such oversights.

Soup Making for the Soul

Cooking soup makes me feel better, a little less sad & happy to be feeding others.  I thing soup has become my go-to meal at the moment because a bowl of good, warm soup feels like a hug from the inside.  And I need hugs right now.

I won’t tell you how to deal with your own grief, feeling of sadness, depression or whatever other negative feeling.  I won’t tell you to go make some soup, but, feel free like giving it a try if you are so inclined.  But, I hope knowing that someone else out there is dealing with some grief  & sadness helps you.
