I've been grieving for my mother for the past year and have written very few hubs. Can anyone advise me about becoming creative again after a loss?
sort by best latest
"the memory of the last time she touched your hand in passing, not knowing that it was to be the last time."
I have to disagree with "you'll never get over..". We don't entirely "get OK with" or "OK again as us", but we do "get over" the grief and other issues associated with, say, the first five years following the loss (especially the first year).
I haven't replied to these answers because it's meant so much to me the responses I've received. I didn't want to write any trite replies. But thank you, all of you, who have put so much thought into this question.
dashingscorpio, I cannot believe the high quality of advice and compassion that has come to fore in response to Kathleen's request. How deeply special and heartwarming id your answer also.
getting you back to your best
Thank you for this. That day is getting closer for me, I think. My husband lost his father unexpectedly in 1993. We finally smile first at his memory but usually there are a few tears still.
