Repost: True Truth

I will not get used to the fact that my son is beyond my reach.  I have come to a certain acceptance of it as fact, and acknowledgement of the truth that I cannot change that fact.

The pain hasn’t become less painful, only more familiar.

  1. I am not a mother of a lost child . But i have loss of 3 siblings. One that we were so close he taught me everything and included me. And I also have a mother that grieves for her 3 children and I am at aw of her strength. But in silence I can only imagine her pain. Is there a place for me? Is there a place for me to help her.

    1. There are, sadly, not many places for siblings who lost a brother or sister. Although there IS a closed FB group through The Compassionate Friends ( I think). There is a way to help her-be there (which I can tell by your comment you are doing) and try the best you can to understand that she’s probably doing all she can to be present to you in her own grief. I know that one of my heart’s cries is to still be able to love my living children well. You are welcome to email me privately and I can try to link you to some other grieving siblings I know.

      Praying God’s grace, mercy and love over your broken heart. ❤
