When you lose a child it is an incredible loss that brings with it great pain. Those of us who are creative try to heal from our pain and keep the memory of our child alive through artistic measures.
I found writing my book: Holding the Baby Dream, incredibly cathartic and a beautiful way to share my memories of River's short time here on earth before he grew his wings.
I know in previous posts I have shared songs but today I discovered the most beautiful song, 'Almost'; which is the way another mother, who lost her child, shared her story. This song bought me to tears almost 8 years after losing my son. It is so honest and heartfelt. Definitely worth a listen.
Many of the mum's I have talked to who have lost a child have a tattoo as a reminder of their child who is no longer with them. I love my tattoo of River and feel it keeps him closer to me.
Photos of our beloved children are also an amazing way to honour their memories and keep them close to us. I have a picture of my son by my bed and other photos in a special box in my cupboard.
How do/did you heal from your grief and keep your child's memory alive? Please share by leaving a comment if you feel guided to.
Blessings and light,
