Pain

Today was painful.

My daughter lost a friend. My sweet little 13 year old lost one of her best friends in a freak accident. She has no concept of this idea, of grief. I have no idea of how to help her feel this and move through it.

So, we share the pain. We chat when she wants to. We pray. We hug a lot.

It hurts.

I told her today that when one of us hurts, we all hurt.  I wish she still couldn't understand that.

So sorry, losing a friend is never easy no matter what the age but somehow it seems even sadder when it's a child.
My thoughts and prayers are with your daughter and her friend

So sorry to hear this Mikki! I will be praying for you both as you navigate the many emotions now and to come. Listening, talking and praying are always amazing gifts to give our children. HUGS!
