Grieving is an important way to say goodbye to a loved one. Painful as it is, it’s a way to remember that you have felt love. Grieving is an important direction towards healing. It doesn’t mean to forget, it only means when time is right, you are ready to give the love you had, to someone else.
You are not replacing. You are starting to understand the meaning of unconditionally love.
When it was time to say goodbye to Gummibear, our beloved rescue horse, was it important to have my children present. Their schools understood when I wrote and explained.
The children and I picked wild flowers while talking about life and death. Not to fear, however, dare to feel, and let go.
There is no ending. Only a new beginning, somewhere else, where the grass is greener.
