The holidays are very difficult for many people for many different reasons. For those grieving the loss of a beloved child there is a service of remembrance held each year in December to help parents during this especially painful time. It is The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting, which will be held Sunday, December 11. Light a candle in precious memory of a child gone too soon. Our children's lights will shine forever. Click on the YouTube link below to hear a poignantly beautiful song and learn more about the candle lighting.
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a mother. I was so happy to have a daughter and a son. They were the focus of my life. Two years ago my 22 year old college senior son died in a tragic accident. The shock and trauma has sent me into a search for meaning. Eight months ago poetry started flowing through me. I believe that the poems are meant to be shared. They are helping me to heal. I hope that they might help others also.
