If Life Were Made of Moments

Recently, as I’ve been setting up this site and getting things organized, I’ve been importing my favorite posts from older blogs.

For some reason, I have been unable or unwilling to write anything for the past few weeks, so I continue to share words and thoughts from fellow travelers. This one hits home for me. Yes, my life is divided into before and after. Moving through this world as a guest. Watching other people's holidays, other's people's happinesses, other peoples hopes and dreams.

There are wounds no amount of time can heal.

The title says it all. I have been facing many of the same issues Rebecca writes about, as all bereaved parents do. Her conclusion is one I have come to as well. We don't really need you to say anything, there are no words. What we need is for you to be there for us whether we need it or not. Not to "help us recover", there is no recovery for this. Don't disappear just because you think enough time has elapsed for the grieving parent to have 'moved on'. There is no moving on. Just moving forward. Everyone moves at their own pace, and the best thing you can do is walk with us, however long it takes.
