What a lovely expression of love… here we see a mother living with her loss, being touched by it, inviting it in, and healing. Some would want to call this complicated bereavement and I think that is utterly crazy on the part of the American Psychiatric Association. This is what living with loss is and it is beautiful. I honor all this love!!!!

Memory Bears by Bonnie

Two years after my son’s death, I am doing okay. There are times when I start to cry without even thinking about Jon. I find no explanation for it. Sometimes, I see or hear something that may bring a few tears and a melancholy moment, but when I tear up without any prompt, I am without any explanation.

It’s not something I worry about. I think grief has become part of me, as my son is part of me. Both are with me, as one goes with the other. I celebrate Jon’s life and I am proud he is my son. I say “is my son” because he didn’t stop being my son when he died. He is my son who died, too young, too soon.
