When You Should Be Sad, But You're Not

My grandfather passed away a couple of weeks ago. I loved my grandpa and for most of my life we were close. The last few years, due to some issues I had no control over, I had not seen him. I actually didn't actually know where he was for the last 8 months or so

He was 82. He had a pacemaker put in several years ago. His health has been deteriorating for some time. He had broke his hip and they couldn't do the surgery to fix it. So I imagine he was in quite a lot of pain. He had been in and out of the hospital and under a lot of stress.

So when my sister in law called to tell me he had passed, I was happy for him.

I tried to be sad. I really did.

But how could I be sad?

He went somewhere better.

He was with Grandma, who passed away a few years ago.
(25th Wedding Anniversary)

He had no more pain and no more stress.

And he would be with his family for always.

What's so bad about that?

  1. I am sorry your for loss. When my grandmother died many years ago, it was sort of bittersweet. She'd been ill for so long and really just a shell of who she'd been before. It was a relief in a way--she was out of pain and with her husband again.
