This stage is a great stage to be in, although it can be the most illusive. Just when you think you are there, you suddenly find yourself bouncing back and forth between all of the other stages, and you realize that grieving is fluid and always moving. Its not a ladder that you can easily climb, its more like swimming in the ocean where you move back and forth slowly making progress.
Right now I live here, in acceptance, with moments and sometimes days where I visit the other stages, but I don't usually stay long. I feel at peace with having Lily as part of our path in this life, I didn't expect it, but I can accept it.
This doesn't mean that life is just peachy all of the time. I still have fear about what the future holds for Lily and for all of us. I still find myself feeling anxious about whether or not I can handle all of the different stresses that may come our way, and I can definitely get overwhelmed with life in general.
Still, overall when I think about where I was 10 months ago, I am so grateful to be where I am now, and I hope in 10 more months, I can look back, and see how much more progress I have been able to make.
