“I lost my daughter in 1985 and my second daughter in 2018 and just lost my son 2020😭. There is never closure but I will share what I read every morning to help me through my day.”
When I read this posted on Facebook by another mom, I could hardly breathe. All I could think about was, “If she can do this. So can the rest of us.” I love posting coping hacks, strategies, and ideas from others. Because what might help one person work through grief, might help another.
We can survive loss. We can survive loss of a child. We can find joy again. Life won’t ever be the same and we have to learn to integrate grief into our lives and learn to cuddle with it as a tie to the one we love. Even though our child or children have died, our love never will.
