the mask

Losing a child to death brings a myriad of emotions ...           

all complicated ... all different ... all difficult.

Silent Grief speaks today about ... moments ...

There is no special moment that arrives when a parent (or family member) of child loss can say, "This is it. This is the day that things are taking a turn and I'm going to feel so much better." Grief from child loss is tricky -- it never really goes away, but it does have days where the pain is more calm and manageable. Then something happens and we find we're being swept away by the tidal wave of emotions once again. And, so we learn to keep our "mask" close by -- the mask hides the inside of us that feels like we're falling apart at the seams. Sometimes we just find it's too exhausting to explain to others how we feel. It's easier to put on the mask during the day and do our screaming and sobbing at the end of the day when we're alone. If others saw us in the depths of our grief they'd think we went crazy. That's just how much the pain of losing a child hurts!

 Father, Yahweh, I pray today for Silent Grief, and all who have lost a child. or a grandchild.  I pray that You will hold them as close to Your heart as You hold the child they love and lost.

Father, bless them today.

xtnyoda, shalomed
