I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. This is also Day 5 of the Write 31 Days challenge. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “share.” We would love to have you join us.
In grief, there is so much to share.
Sharing of tears
Sharing of stories
Sharing of photos
Sharing of families.
Just a few weeks ago at our dear family friends funeral, his wife invited my sister and I to come early to the church when all the family was gathering. I said, “But we are not family.” To which she replied, “That’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard all day.” My sister and I processed in with the family. Sometimes family is more than blood.
Over this long season of loss, I’ve shared so much. I’ve shed tears with family and friends. I’ve shared in some incredibly holy moments. I’ve shared with friends as we stood around our friends urn and commended him to God’s care. I’ve shared moments that will not leave me.
Sharing is an important part of the grieving process. So share away, friends!
