A ritual that can help your grief
Four candles... Something practical for you.
Feelings of deep loss, regardless of the passage of time, are compounded as each special occasion comes around. I am speaking of Christmas time, Birthdays, Father's day, Mother's day, Easter, Anniversaries. Sometimes we don't know what to do with this pain. I am thinking that doing something physical might help, so regardless if you are with other people or alone I want to share this with you in the hope that it may help. So copy and paste the words below, modify as required and use when needed. Silvana x
The first candle represents our grief.
The pain of losing you is intense.
It reminds us of the depth of our love for you.
This second candle represents our courage.
To confront our sorrow,
To comfort each other,
To change our lives.
This third candle we light in your memory.
For the times we laughed,
The times we cried,
The times we were angry with each other,
The silly things you did,
The caring and joy you gave us.
This fourth candle we light for our love.
We light this candle that your light will always shine.
As we enter this special occasion and share this night of remembrance
with our family and friends.
We cherish the special place in our hearts
that will always be reserved for you.
We thank you for the gift
your living brought to each of us.
We love you.
We remember you
