One of the best things to say to someone grieving is simply, “I’m thinking of you.”

Losing a child creates deep feelings of loneliness.  These feelings can be intensified once other people close to the grieving parents began to move on. It is hard to watch the world continue to whiz by, when your own world has slowed to a dull blur.

As the weeks have continued to pass since Esther’s death, there have been many times I have wondered if anyone knows how much Adam and I are still grieving. I have been comforted time and time again by several different people who have pulled me aside just to say, “I’m thinking of you today” or “I’m thinking of Esther today.” I cannot describe how thankful I am for the wonderful people in my life who continue to do this.

Although these words often brings tears to my eyes, hearing someone say them refreshes my soul. It reminds me that I am not alone. It tells me that my family and friends care. And while they can’t fix our pain, they are still walking with us through this journey.

Sometimes the simplest gestures can demonstrate the greatest care!

Come back next week for another tip on supporting parents of loss.
