SIMPLE GESTURES TO COMFORT THEM
Your body truly gives you a miracle when your loved one just passes away, to feel complete and utter numbness. This is the body’s gift to you; I honestly see that now looking back on it all. Numbness to make it through moments that no person should ever have to face. From wills, to funeral arrangements, to watching your loved one be set to rest, it is a true blessing that in that time we feel complete numbness throughout our body, heart and soul.
One day I decided that we should start letting go balloons with a note attached whenever she wanted to let her daddy know something. Something so little like this can bring healing to you even little by little. I noticed at the cemetery this little gesture helped tremendously, she smiled bright as the balloon went in to the clouds, it was at that moment I seen a sparkle in her eyes, that was when I knew she too was on her way to healing. That in her heart she was starting to feel the pain evapourate. It sometimes is the simplest of things that help mend our broken hearts.
Through the little gestures that work for us they seem so much more than little gestures that help us move toward healing, to help the pain ease up a little. Whatever it is for all of you find the little things that work for you.
