The following is a link to a blog that started following my blog today. I couldn’t help but connect with this article. I too felt the need to tell strangers about the death of my children. Not so much show them a picture, but to let them know how much pain I have endured and I am still standing, functioning. I still feel the need to tell people/stranger that I have lost a child and always find a way to work it into the conversation. Is it fair to put this on strangers? I don’t know, is it fair that I have to walk around with this in my head on the time? I am going to go with a “no” for both of those questions. But its part of my therapy to tell my story. Enjoy the article. Its an interesting topic. Peace. Kelly
A stunning piece, Kelly ~ thank you so much for pointing us to it. How fitting that I should find and read it on May 23 ~ the birthday of our son who died 47 years ago, at the age of just three days.♥
Thank you for sharing my story. And also for sharing yours.
You are welcome. Its a great topic and one I never really thought about before. For the non-bereaved parent hearing that conversation they would be appalled and think this girl was crazy. However, I see the pain she is carrying and the need to get it out. Peace. Kelly
