1. Summertime...and the Living is not Easy
What does it mean to enter into another season when you are a bereaved parent?
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. 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.
4. 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.
5. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief
I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. Itís a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.
6. It Doesn't Get Easier
My daughter died two and a half years ago and it feels like yesterday. I am not better; Iím just getting used to feeling this way.
7. 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.
8. If I Were A Pilot, I'd Ground Myself
Over the last 17 months, there is no way I could have performed any task that required any extensive level of thought. My thinking process is skewed, my thoughts are random and unfocused.
