So often when we hear that a friend or family member has experienced a loss, most don't know what to say. Sometimes the best thing to say is I am here if you need me or say nothing at all, simply listen. When I first found we had lost a pregnancy, I know that I needed alot of people to just listen. Then as I moved further in my grieving I appreciated and found it helpful to hear the stories of others, knowing that I was not alone. Now I feel it is healing for me to share my story when needed, listen when required and just be available to all who could use a kind ear to listen.
This is dedicated to a family member who just experienced her own loss.
