So what is Grief Journey in a Jar?

You find/buy a container such as a jar, bag, or box for small notes with grief tips and quotes which you will download, print, cut apart, fold and put in the “Grief Journey in a Jar” for a friend who has lost a child. The idea is they select one note out of the jar per day for as long as there are quotes in the jar. 

The “kit” comes with 96 quotes and tips, labels for the container you can personalize as well as instructions. Examples of some of the quotes below. If there is one you don’t like, leave it out. Maybe you want to add a little personal note and add it to the mix. It’s up to you and you can be creative.

You can’t fix their hurt

But you can show you care with something thoughtful and special they won’t get from just anyone. I wasn’t able to read a book at first. All the words ran together. This is “digestible content” for a grieving parent, meaning that they’ll be able can read one of these per day.

The download comes with instructions, a label you can personalize and the 96 quotes/tips.
