Patient With Yourself

Losing a child to death brings a myriad of emotions ... all complicated ... all different ... all difficult.

Angie speaks today about the reality that the grieving person often must be understanding of their own self.

"Be patient with yourself."

I remember the young mother that had just tragically lost a little baby that had been premature. The baby had lived several days fighting to hang on to life.

The Mother was rocking back and forth in a seated position with loud sobs and gasping for air at the announcement that her little girl had died. The only thing she could actually say ... over and over ... was ... "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I can't help it!"

God Bless you Angie, and all those who've lost those who have meant more to them than their own lives.
