Remembering

A loved one dies and the grieving begins. As time goes by it gets more tolerable to bear their absence. You still grieve, but you begin to smile more as you remember them and how they blessed your life with their presence. If there is a better part of grieving, it is remembering.

  1. I think that early on in grief, remembering brings awful torment because we miss our loved one so much. Then later on, there is the fear that we will forget them.
    And with healing, we learn that their memory is always with us. Those memories become less painful and can bring a smile again. For me, it took decades – grief is a long journey and different for every person, as you know.

  2. Well expressed Bonnie! Thanks for sharing. In the beginning there does not seem to be anything good about grief for the bereaved, but as you rightly say ‘if there is’ remembering is the good/better part! Suz.
