Thank you everyone for this safe place, to express our pain, to be with others who truely are struggling daily….
After reading the poem posted here, from and about a grieving mumma, I did get Joanne cacciatories book called bearing the unbearable, it’s given me confidence to grieve openly, for the most part this world is closed to the grieving and the shocking ongoing pain of our losses.
I am recommending her work as the necessary big step to shining an awareness to the worlds pain, which needs to be seen and heard….which is mostly ignored. The words reach you as a hopeful place of moving through grief with an open heart toward a more compassionate and caring world for all….I hope I can get there some day….to be honest it’s the only book I’ve been able to read so far….
You may not realise she’s a more recent handbook also, called grieving is loving, the title says it all, I’ve found it to be a comfort to remind me all the time my grief is valid and it’s like having a caring saint beside you saying it’s okay to be as you are, a small book easily carried about.
Really like to hear how this helps others as well….
Written by a grieving mumma however it’s totally for all types and stages of us here, I just wish every person could read it….
Love and gentle hugs to all
