Grief – Normal and Okay

When my dad passed away a few years ago, I found that the grieving process was far more complicated than I ever imagined it would be. There were times I literally thought I was losing my mind as my emotions jumped from one extreme to another.

A few weeks ago a childhood friend lost her mom unexpectedly. I thought back to the first few months after my dad passed away and tried to capture all of the things that I wish someone had told me. Her View from Home published the article yesterday. It can be found here: Grief – Normal and Okay

Please share with someone else who is beginning or continuing on their own complicated journey.

  1. You never fail to amaze me with the depth of your understanding and ability to cope with what comes your way. I should not be surprised; it is something I have observed for years. No disrespect intended, but you are an “old soul” who has dealt with a lot–but you are richer for all of that. I admire your ability to remain true to your ideals. And I thank the Lord that you and hubby are bringing up your little ones to live as you live.
