1. A Foundation in Her Honor
Itís a strange feeling, that of knowing you must physically do something so that you wonít perish in your sadness and yet so emotionally unmotivated you could just sit and do nothing forever.
2. A Moment of Clarity
As the grief process shamelessly forces you on, you reach a point of desperately needing to find something to do, to take your mind away from the pain, if only for a moment. But at the same time, you donít want to not think of her for fear that you are losing her.
3. Our Grief Forever Remains
In the early days after your child dies, it can be quite clear to the outside world what stage of grief you are in - shock, anger, etc. But as times passes, they see us functioning again, maybe even having a laugh. Do they think we're "over it"? We learn to hide our grief behind a mask.
4. A Butterfly Release
A unique group hosted a butterfly release for families whose children died while at their facility. What they gave me was comfort in the knowledge that I am embracing my child.
5. Having an Everyday Conversation
Often I find myself apologizing for talking about my deceased daughter. Iím so conscious of the discomfort of others that I tend to say ďI'm sorryĒ after I bring my personal heartache into a conversation.
6. Being with Other Bereaved Parents
I find myself feeling less and less like I fit in to the mainstream world. After my daughter died, my reality capsized. I now look at life through a dark set of glasses. Itís not rosy. Itís not happy. Itís not balanced.
7. The Physical Effects of Grief
We are working so hard to manage our emotions that our bodies suffer. The physical elements of grief are serious and sneak up on us without our knowledge because we are so mentally consumed in our heartache. It is so important that we be aware that grief can make us sick.
8. Blaming Yourself for the Death of Your Child
We can think of so many questions to ask ourselves why we didnít do more to prevent our childís death. We can very often ask these questions and blame ourselves for what has happened.
9. What If We Knew
Is it better to not know about a deadly disease and die having lived a happy life or to know about it and be able to have hope for survival?
10. She Turned Ten Today
November the twentieth was our daughterís tenth birthday. But she wasnít here to celebrate it. We wanted to do something to remember her and honor her.
