I am still so fresh and new to the grieving journey as a bereaved, angel mama and wouldn't know quite what to say to other fresh grieving parents or other mamas. I am honestly afraid of saying the wrong things or not saying enough as I know what it is like being on the receiving end of things. A few "pearls of wisdom" I've received, read, and heard from others are:
// Take one day at a time.
// It's okay to grieve, but stay lifted.
// Cry whenever you need to.
// It takes time to heal. Work can wait.
// There is sunshine after the rain.
// There is beauty amidst the pain.
// Allow yourself to heal.
// Forgive yourself daily.
// Don't ever forget that you're not alone.
// We're in this together.
// Don't keep things to yourself.
// Things will be okay.
// God has a purpose for what happened.
// God has a bigger plan for you.
// It's okay to cry.
// Be gentle, be kind, and be patient on yourself.
// Do other things you've never ever had the time to do.
// Time heals all things.
