The Good Mourning Mother-Introduction
"In the middle of this grief I retired as an ER nurse and founded a Memorial Company-Weathered Raindrop. This is my story."
Seasoned Grief - A Message from the Founder of Weathered Raindrop
As an ER nurse I remember thinking, I knew what real grief was. I had held the hands of the dying and comforted those left behind. I’d heard the desperate screams from mothers and soft wail from fathers as they stood holding their child, for the last moments. . . .
Grief was the deepest emotion I had ever seen and I thought I knew it well. It wasn’t until my children died that I knew what real grief FELT like, it was much different than what it looked like. How does it feel?
How old is my child in Heaven?
For years now I have felt no need to share publicly on what has most certainly brought the very most peace through my children’s deaths. My closest friends have heard bits and pieces but this part of my journey has not been something I’ve been willing to share. Until today.
