It is so fitting that it’s raining today. It seems nearly every weekend since Grace was born the weather is a direct indication of my feelings.
I have thought about doing this before but I finally did it last night and I know it is a healthy thing to do in the grieving process. I dressed my cabbage patch doll in Grace’s clothing. Jim and I held the doll. We know she is not Grace. Sometimes grieving parents need something tangible . We can express our love for her in healthy ways.
My mom and my sister came to visit today. We had a lovely time. I cooked Chinese and we talked about Grace a lot.
I feel so many things today. I feel happy, sad, hopeful, scared, peace, love and acceptance. We have so many wonderful people in our lives who love us and do not judge. We are finding ourselves in new territory: sifting through the rough to find the diamonds.
Yup. Today was a good day and it isn’t even over yet. And guess what? The sun is shining now. ❤ 🙂
