Grief and Memorial Day


Does Memorial Day bring a smile or a tear to you ? We can rest assured that this day WILL come around every year again, creating in our hearts, Memories. If you have ‘lost’ a loved one to death, this Day may be viewed with sweetness or with pain, or maybe a little combo of both.

I will include the link to my 2nd book, “He Hit The Clouds Running … and never looked back … ” which I recorded on my YouTube Channel a couple years ago, so you can take a listen to what my grief journey has been like. Many times, if we share what we have accomplished with other people, it helps us heal from this pain.

As soon as I changed DEATH to Homecoming, it changed my pain level. I have never liked “I am sorry for your loss” as I did not LOSE that person, they DIED; if they were lost, I could find them again, and I do NOT have that option. There are so many more things you can say to someone who is in bereavement and I have many other choices listed on my channel, and on this website in e-postcard form. What to say and what NOT to say when someone has died is an art form, and you really CAN make a difference in how YOU talk to a mourner, and how they, in turn, will minister to another in grief pain.

Stay tuned to this blog for my next piece to this grief puzzle – What your Personality Type has to do with how you see Bereavement.
