5 thoughts on “How to put a serious damper on someone’s morning

  1. Oh, Diana–this is such a moving post because of your compassion for other people, and their reactions to your sadness. If you can be so generous at such of tough time, then yes, I have no doubt it will be fine, and better than fine.

    bang: nice way to live up to your name.

    di: yes, you made them sad, but they weren’t sad AT you. probably more of a go-hug-your-own-kid-so-tight kind of sad. caring kind of sad. it sucks for you to have to tell people in such a bad-moment way, and for them too, but in the end, that sadness means that their hearts are added to the circle of hearts around yours.

    p.s. i suggest that the coffee and laptops be a bit further apart.

    So sorry you had to go through that, but people do want to know. I’ve been involved with schools for so many years, and know that there is a definite caring community in most of them–kind of like a spiritual connection that’s all about kids and learning and growing. I know those parents were very glad you told them, even though they were so sad to hear the news. I’ll bet it will be heartbreakingly healing for you to be around those kindergarteners–such a fun and endearing age. Hope you have a great school year and let the kids help make your heart sing again, just with the everyday wondrous gifts they bring.

    Oh Di. 🙁 I’m glad I’m friends with the kind of person (i.e. YOU) who worries about other people’s reactions to your heartbreak. XO
