My biggest comfort is God.

Wow, when I think about it, a lot has. Definitely family and friends, even some strangers have said or done beautiful things. Definitely God. This group and connections I have made to know I’m not alone, in even the type of accident our son had. Tangible or material things the book Jesus Calling and the book Angels in my Hair. And last but not least, the signs God has allowed me to not only receive, but be aware of! Those are my biggest comfort!

The scriptures and my faith in Jesus although I have to admit there are many times my mind wanders to places I’d prefer it not go and I get distraught. I have to work hard to keep focus on the one who holds me

Gosh I hate being a downer to anyone but I just go for the truth, no energy for anything less. The faking is too exhausting. So, with that said, I’m still trying to figure it out this comfort I am to find. I do think emotional exhaustion is in its own right a comfort in a way. I give in to the need for resting my fragile soul.

Knowing that my son Brandon is in Heaven, and no longer suffers from depression, PTSD,nightmares, that the Lord has given Brandon his Happy,Healthy, Unbroken self back,my comfort is turning to the Lord and God.

I agree with Debi Brady, I haven’t found any comfort at this point. I am still trying to sort through the devastation of my loss.

A teddy bear that my son gave to me on Valentines Day a year before he passed. I have pictures of him, and things of his, all over the house. It helps me to feel his presence. My grandson and granddaughter and my girls have also helped. I have some good friends as well.

Knowing that without a doubt, my Toodley is in the very presence of our Savior, and that she knows how beautiful His eyes are, and that I will see her again and we will never again be parted. That we will ride horses together again—in heaven. Also my dear friend and sister in Christ, Coke. She’s a widow and understands the grief process and has been such a blessing to me.

That’s a really hard question to answer. I don’t know that anything comforts me in my grief. I talk to my mom every morning and tell her what’s bothering me, and she gives her advice, but I don’t know if it comforts me. I have a friend I talk to, and I talk to her, and she never judges me. And I have a pen pal who has so much faith that I have asked her to be my spiritual teacher, so maybe that will give me comfort. When my mind leaves grief, I find comfort. But I know it… Read more »

I have found some comfort, by finding ways to keep my son’s memory alive. He was only on this earth for two short years, but he touched so many. I raised money and donated a bench with his name on it to the Cape May zoo. I started a memorial garden at our church. I got rocks for others to paint in memory of their loved ones and they put them in the memorial garden. The last three years I’ve raised money and walked in a 5k for a non-profit grief camp for kids in my Matthew’s memory.
