Another bereaved mom wrote that she was better able to cope now than she had been a year ago.

Several comments down a second mom wrote something that got me thinking-when, exactly, did Dominic’s loss move from the forefront to the background?
I’m not sure I can pinpoint a day or moment when I realized that sorrow was no longer ALL I feel and Dominic’s absence no longer ALL I see.

One thought on “Bereaved Parents Month 2022: Background Music”
I think it’s important for us to lift each other up as best we can, with hope, love, and encouragement. Too often we throw out something deeply sorrowful and ask for others to join in to express their misery too. Yes, misery is part of this but we will never heal unless we look up and look forward to brighter days; unless we work to lift each other up, and find that in the process we have lifted up ourselves too. We makes important choices in our grief recovery.
