Gratitude is today’s Capture Your Grief topic. This is a wonderful idea! I am grateful for so many things! I am grateful to be alive, to have a wonderful husband, for having 2 wonderful daughters, Faith in Heaven and Joy here with us, for a wonderful family and great friends, new ideas, new business ideas, a roof over my head, food to eat, my health, the list goes on and on…
I believe Carly is very accurate here when she talks about practicing being grateful daily. At first, when you experience the loss of your child, you are doing good to get out of bed. However, gradually, as time goes by, you can begin to live again and see how blessed you truly are in life. Losing Faith has caused me an unimaginable amount of pain, however, it has also brought me to realize how important and beautiful ALL life is and has given me such a different perspective of life.
I am grateful for Faith: the time we shared together while she was growing, the time we shared at the hospital, the time we shared together at the funeral home, and the time we share together now, every day as she is in Heaven and I am here…somehow…we are together in our hearts. I know that she is waiting for me just on the other side of the pearly gates, and for that, I am GRATEFUL!
