Bereaved Parent’s Wish List (from thelifeididntchoose blog)

I have tried to put into words for a year now what I want people who haven’t lost children to know about me now. Melanie over at The Life I didn’t Choose put my words together perfectly in her blog called Bereaved Parent’s Wish List. I asked her permission to post here. So my post today is short, but please go read Melanie’s blog as it is perfectly written.

I suggest following her as well. She has been such a blessing to me over the past months that she will never know her impact on my life.

As always, Melanie, you write what I can’t and make me know I am not alone on this battle field of grief.

Thanks for all you do for me.

In just a few short months I have gone from being someone no one knows much about to clearly opening my soul to the world.

The goal of this award is to share about yourself and then nominate other bloggers you feel deserve the same recognition. So here goes:

Grief and the Grieving…..

No one ever gets up one morning as says “Today, I want to stay in my grief and not ever find a way out”, well some might, but that’s not me. The hardest thing I have faced over the last nine months is learning I am not as strong as I thought I was before losing Big Bubby. I can’t always just push aside thoughts and feelings and go on with my life. For those who know me best, you relate to what I am talking about.
