I love scrapbooking! This simple activity affords me the opportunity to spend highly coveted time with dear friends, showcase the wee bit of creativity that I inherited and because I am so very behind in putting pictures to paper, I am able to re-live precious memories and joy-filled celebrations.
The healthiest way to heal from your own grief is to deal with the pain so that you can continue to have a rich and fulfilled life.
Grief literature is a helpful tool for many bereaved families. Understanding that you are not alone in your grief by relating to others who have experienced similar grief reactions can help ease the sting.
