Today, August 30th, is National Grief Awareness Day. The day we celebrate not “getting over it.” The day we recognize that grief is a process we have to honor. That we cannot tuck it away or stuff it. We go through grief because we loved someone and we had the honor of having love in our lives.
The hardest part of the grief process is learning to live without the one I lost. May all the hurt from the loss of my son by suicide one day turn into sweet memories. I just have to have faith it will happen and learn to live with grief in my life going forward.
What is the #griefheart project?
I explain my #griefheart project here.
