Last year the thought of being Thankful for anything just made me sad, angry and depressed. How could I be thankful when Scott was not here with us? How could I find good in any of this and have any positive thoughts when my baby was dead? Needless to say Thanksgiving was not a good one for me last year.
I am so glad that you have found things and people in your life to be thankful for. Adjusting to life after the loss of a child is like learning how to live life all over again. There are so many monumental adjustments that have to be made. I am glad that you have people in your life that understand those adjustments and will sit there and just hold your hand and not speak. Or send you a text to let you know they are there. We on Share are lucky to have you too. :) Hoping to see some more pictures of Elvis soon.
I am glad that you are thankful for so many things. I imagine that last Thanksgiving was extremely hard, with everyone else seeming so thankful while your world had just fell apart. Your family and friends sound wonderful.
I'm very thankful that you found this site, I look forward to reading all of your posts.
It can definitely take time after a loss to be able to see the things that we are thankful for. I'm glad that you are in a better place this year. I have always been thankful for Marco, though when the grief is new and intense, I guess it's hard to look at it that way - all you can think about is the sadness and how broken everything feels. Anyway - I don't know when I had this epiphany - but it did finally dawn on me over the years that I am really so thankful for him - though he is not here with us in body. I would much rather have him as we do now, as our angel baby, than to not have ever had him at all.
