Reflections from the Soul
For caregivers who are grieving the loss of a loved one.
The loss of a loved one can often feel like being in the midst of a raging storm, alone on a tiny boat in the middle of the ocean. The shore of calm and joy is elusive and there are unpredictable, intense moments of sadness and emptiness and even riptides of anger that leave you shaken, isolated, and lost. The anguish of grief is expected when you have cared for someone you love, but you can navigate your way back to the shore, restore your joy, and reclaim your peace.
