Many of you are waking up each day and facing a world you don’t recognize.
I’ve been doing this for over half a decade.
Almost seven years ago my family’s world was shaken in much the same way everyone’s world is being shaken today.
It was precisely as disruptive, unthinkable, even more tragic and there was not one thing we could do to change it except live through it.
I know thousands of bereaved parents and surviving siblings who have learned to live in the time they are given.
If you want to know how to face this crisis with courage, ask them.

There have been discussions recently between family members either one to one or maybe only three out of four of us together at one time. They have been around the resilience we have developed within ourselves since Luke died.
We were came to the conclusion that the four of us are stronger than we would have thought possible and we are fortunate. It feels as though this current crisis is nothing compared to what we have already endured and continue to endure.
People are going to struggle in an altered society when we get through this crisis…..we do know the way and can help others.
I pray that our families are spared another personal crisis as it would seem to much for us to bare or for our children to bare should it be us that didn’t survive…..but endure we would because we do know the way.

Thank you for your blog! Twenty-seven years ago, I thought my life had difficult moments until our son died suddenly in a car accident. The aftermath of a funeral, newspaper hype, pitying looks, and never being able to say a real good-bye changed my idea about what is difficult in life. It also made me realize what is important in life. This virus is a glitch. Do what you need to stay safe during this time. Anything else can be worked through with all of us working together.
so true. but I do have to say, this is still nothing compared to the world that mothers of losing a child have been introduced into.
