National Grief Awareness Day supporter Emma Heming Willis says grief can be paralysing.

Emma Heming Willis talked about how she has kept busy this summer by trying out new things and staying active. In March, Bruce Willis, her husband, was told he had aphasia. Emma Heming Willis is getting used to her loss.

National Grief Awareness Day

The 44-year-old model posted a video montage on Instagram on Tuesday night showing what she’s been doing this summer since her husband Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia and decided to stop acting in March.

Emma wrote in the post’s caption, “This was the summer of self-discovery—finding new hobbies, getting out of my comfort zone, and staying active.” The post showed videos of Emma using a fitness mirror, gardening, playing tennis, and painting and finishing a wooden fence and table. Emma used Aretha Franklin’s 1968 version of “I Say A Little Prayer” for her video montage.

Emma wrote in the caption, “My grief can make me feel like I can’t move, but I’m learning how to live with it.” “My stepdaughter, Scout LaRue Willis, told me that grief is the deepest and purest form of love. “I hope that makes you feel better too.”

Emma Heming Willis says grief

Emma finished her caption with hashtags that call attention to the fact that August 30 is National Grief Awareness Day. 
Bruce Willis, who is 67 years old, stopped acting months before Emma’s post. At the time, Bruce’s family announced it on Instagram, and Emma called it “a really tough time.”

People said that Willis’s frequent co-worker and Midnight in the Switchgrass director Randall Emmett pushed the actor to work despite his health problems, which led to his sudden retirement. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times in June, Willis’s lawyer, Martin Singer, made it clear that the actor kept working “because he wanted to work and was able to do so.” 

The singer told the Times, “My client kept working after his medical diagnosis because he wanted to work and was able to do so, just like many other people with aphasia.” 
“Because Mr. Willis was in those movies, they were able to get money to make them. “This gave jobs to tens of thousands of people, many of whom were working during the COVID-19 pandemic,” he added.

Bruce playing the harmonica

Bruce has stopped acting, but he and his family seem to have found other things to do. On August 16, Emma posted a video to Instagram of Bruce playing the harmonica while hanging out with Derek Richard Thomas, the boyfriend of his daughter Rumer Willis.

In the black-and-white clip, Thomas sang and played his guitar while the Die Hard star played the harmonica from a nearby staircase. 
“Their skills speak for themselves. I’m just going to leave this here. “Emma used the hashtag #jamsession in a post about the moment.

One commenter said this about the performance: “Long live blues music and Bruce! Excellent jam, gents!”

“Oh, man! That makes my whole heart happy, even though some gifts are gone and others are still here,” another person said. “Music helps us get through the worst times.”
