It came up in one of our closed support groups again: That friend who thinks because we have endured the worst, we are somehow uniquely equipped to listen to and bear up under their fear of the worst.
If your child survives a car crash or some other terrible accident, please, please, please know that NO ONE is happier than I am you are spared!
Allow me to “like/love/whatever” your post in support. But please do not PM me with a list of “what could have happened”.
I already know. I’m living it.❤
Dear Mom Whose Son Survived the Accident,
I want you to know that I am beyond thankful that you will be spared my pain. I prayed for your son as you requested-begged God to spare him.
They say misery love company but I say misery loves comfort.
I do not want one more parent to know the heartache of child loss.
