Understanding Your Grief

Peggy Green - Thee Grief Specialist

By Peggy Green of Thee Grief Specialist

Death of a child is unique. It is a mother’s worst nightmare. As a mother, you never expect to outlive your child. It changes your total being from the core. There is a hole in your heart and a yearning to be reunited with your child. Your circle of friends changes because they do not know how to help you. They are afraid to say and do the wrong things. They cannot comprehend the depth of your pain and do not know how to support you in difficult times.

Grief and Mother’s Day 2021

If I were to count the Mother’s Day without my daughter, it is 30 and without my son it is three. Counting Mother’s Day without them however does not make me feel better. It actually makes me feel worse. Focusing on them not being with me causes the wounds to reopen. I relive the days they passed and the heartache that came along with it. Those are the bad memories associated with them. I would rather focus on the good, so I have been intentional to look for the positive and remember the joy I had with them.
