Meanwhile, summer has settled in and many venues are re-opening, but not quite the same as before. Then some people are being careful, and "some" not so much. Nonetheless, Covid-19 remains a worrisome and invisible threat. How are you coping with this reality? While our world is battling the same storm, as individuals, we are navigating it differently. For those who are bereaved, along with the added concerns of this pandemic, grief continues . . .
Traditional celebratory days: birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays which may be happy times for others, can blind-side you with painful emotions and poignant memories. This ensuing roller-coaster-ride of grief may seem overwhelming. Please remember that these feelings are a normal part of your journey, and you are not alone.
It helps to share your story again and again with those you trust. Perhaps you remain somewhat isolated right now. Continue to reach outward by phone, internet, physical-distancing visits, and (possibly) a little closer connection with your safe social circle. Snail-mail too can offer some of the compassionate help and support you need.
Although our book does not "speak" to the new normal of 2020, we hold out a helping hand for your grief. Life Came to a Standstill is dedicated to every heart impacted by loss. We "get it" that your grief continues to impact you while world events attempt to overshadow your sorrow.
A bereaved mom gives back:
The Story of the Dragonfly (photo to the left) begins: "Once in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle . . ." Barbara, bereaved mom of Nathan, in Nathan's honour and memory, lovingly crafts these beautiful key chains from parachute silk. She donates them, including this timeless legend. If you have an interest in Barbara's compassionate work, you may contact her at: email@example.com
