    So helpful. I know we are grieving the loss of relationship with our son and his family and the sale of the farm. I just couldn’t call it grief cause no one died. Yet the heavy feeling and the tears that come and go are a tell tale. The woo is real and cacooning is healing. Many great podcast to listen too. The young couple that took over our farm are very thankful and inclusive. That’s also healing.
