Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month is drawing to a close. I feel badly, because it was my intent to write more frequently, to give more encouragement, and to share more resources for grieving mothers. But this month was full of LIFE.
That, I suppose, is the best piece of encouragement I can give to a grieving mother. One day, life will be normal again. There will be a day that you can wake up and sadness does not overwhelm you. There will be a day that you are no longer actively grieving, even if you will always be bereaved.
I can even say I feel whole again.
Yes, there will always be a Kathryn sized hole in my heart and life, but I have Bug, Bean, and Tiny who do so much to plug the pain.
My hope for anyone who is grieving is that the day will arrive soon.
But take as much time as you need.
