It is never too late to reach out or to remember someone’s lost child. It helps keep them alive in spirit and in our hearts.
Recently, a new friend suggested a website where I saw this quote from Elizabeth Edwards. In the midst of my grief fog I may have already posted this months ago. In any case, it reminded me of a conversation I had when someone shared that they had heard through the grapevine that a friend they had lost touch with had lost a child. In their opinion, to reach out now and express their sympathy would only wake up an old wound. Hmmm? Old wound.
Prior to losing my daughter, I may have nodded my head in confirmation as to acknowledging a loss outside of a certain number of days. However, now I know nothing could be further from the truth. If there is an entry included in a book of etiquette which lists a suggested time frame for acknowledging and extending sympathy, it needs updating.
