My heart aches for you and your family. May is so soon. Please be gentle with yourself. I found that I had to become protective of my energy since I had so little of it at times. Being a mother, I had been accustomed to always doing for others. But during this process, I had to give myself permission to be a little selfish.
I also had to give myself permission to feel what I felt at the time. It takes too much of that precious energy to fight our own emotions.
Find someone with whom you can talk and share.
The deep pain will get better. It has been two years for us. You do not have to walk this road alone. We are here for you.
Debi and Jami,
Each of you will be in my thoughts and prayers also. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious children. I am going to visit Andrew?s site.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. I am sorry for the loss of your dear Matthew. It encourages me to hear from someone further down the road. You had great words of wisdom for us. It has been two years since Clint died.
