Pregnancy Loss

My Soul is Shaking

 

Loss hits our souls too. It can jostle us spiritually. We come to realize just how little we control. 

 

10 Ways to Keep a Loved One's Memory Alive

Having lost 4 family members in just over 3 years, my world was turned upside down. I felt an ache in my heart and in my arms. I knew they were still in my heart but I needed something I could physically hold or actually see to comfort me. Although nothing brought them back or took away the pain, having some tangible reminders of them eased the pain.

 

Why do people try to fix the unfixable?


This will cannot be fixed. Those around us, however, will try.  Most are well-intentioned, perhaps, but that doesn't make their words helpful.

FOREVER

Another year without you...

It’s always so depressing

     when I realize how long it’s been 

     since I’ve seen you; 

The Littlest Guru

Just before 5, I opened my eyes to see Greg, sitting at the end of the bed putting his shoes on. And I began to cry.

He turned around to face me. “What’s wrong?” he said.

“It stopped hurting.” I answered softly.

“Stopped hurting?”

“My incision.” I lifted my nightgown to reveal my scar, still darkened by pooled, clotted blood beneath the surface.

When Grief Shakes Spiritually

"I used to be sure about a lot of things. Not now. I'm confused. I'm not sure what I believe anymore," Tony shared.

When SADNESS Becomes a Way of Life

“I’m certain my tear ducts are empty. I’ve been a crying fool for weeks. I’ve wanted to wail and scream on many occasions, but I haven’t given myself permission yet,” Amanda said.

When Grief Messes with our Sleep

"Sleep? What's that?" Paul said. "I manage to snatch a little here and there, but I haven't slept through the night since Colton died."

Grieving well takes a village, or at least a team

"Thanks to other people, I’ll make it. If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a team of brave hearts to help someone survive the loss of a child," Marge shared.

When Life Seems Meaningless

"I wander. I drift. I have no purpose. Everything feels meaningless," Mark said.

"Me too. I'm just here. That's all," Melanie added.
