Losing friends…

Losing friends…

One of the many sad truths of grieving the loss of a child is the people you loose around you.

I have yet to figure out exactly why this is… 

All I know is that over the past couple of months the invites have become less… the phone calls have become less… the ‘see you this weekend’ have become less…

My guesses are that people are afraid of our pain, afraid to ‘awaken’ our grief and afraid to remind us – trust us we don’t need you to remind us – our daughter is never far from our minds or our hearts! 

Yet we still spend more and more weekends alone…

We do need you to call us, to extend the invites and for us still be one of your first thoughts. 

We need you to not be afraid to talk about our daughter, find joy with us in hear beloved memory and laugh with us at every day jokes… we need you accept the new us and still love us like you had before…

We need our friends…
