Thank you, this was a very thoughtful post. There are many occasions which may raise again those powerful, difficult emotions after experiencing a loss. I remember keenly how overwhelming it felt at times, to get through the first year’s worth of “firsts” without our beloved family member. First birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, even the changes in season through our first year without them. I’m reminded of that today as we bask in a rare day of sunshine out of all the rain we’ve had recently. For some, today’s sunshine will be bittersweet, difficult to enjoy with the loss and grief they are currently experiencing. Please take time to let the sunshine warm you gently, remembering to be kind to yourself.
