A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

Day 12: Article

Today's assignment was to share an article that I have found helpful or meaningful in grief. An article I found shortly after Julia passed away described grief as a piano. I still love it. It's about how grief starts out as an overwhelming, intrusive, looming force. A force that requires your full attention. Over time, although the presence of grief does not diminish, grief can be integrated into the background of our story. We can engage it or not. We can make it center stage at times. What we do with it can make it beautiful as we remember the beauty of the love represented in the grief in the first place. To read it please see this post: One Month.

Another article I recently read about grief is a good description of how it affects the bereaved. It is called "Grief Intelligence: A Primer" and can be found at http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/3716013.
