Allow me to introduce myself again. I am Tom and have been through a lot in my 35 years of time on this earth. Since 1994 I have lost about 15 people that have either been family, friends, or acquaintances, although most of them have been family, close family.
I started Good Grievings to reach you or someone you know that may be hurting or angry or just totally lost in this world, because that special person is no longer with you. I want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. The pain, the hurt, the sadness is felt by many people each day. Grief is something that we all go through in stages and there isn’t a specific order that they go in. I’m here to tell you I still deal with the loss of my mom and sister each day. Yes that’s right I lost my mother at the age of 47 in 2000 to a pulmonary embolism (blood clot) and my sister at 25 to a heart attack in 2009, 6 weeks before my wedding and a week before my birthday
Even 17 years after my mom and almost 8 years after my sister left me I still deal with the anger and sadness. I have accepted it? yes, but with a lot of help along the way with counseling and keeping their memories alive. Remember you are not alone. With each death that I have experienced I have had to relive it when someone else has died. It’s a constant reminder that this is all apart of life. It’s all apart of life that sucks, it’s sucks that our loved ones die. That only means that it’s there time to leave this earth and begin to watch over us. You may not believe this and that’s fine, but in one of my next posts you ll read that I actually lived a comforting yet out of no where experience. So, please follow along and share the love of what I’m doing with this blog. And always remember to keep your loved ones memories alive so that you have “good grievings”
