I'm feeling a bit lost. I came here as I have from time to time over the past three years to find solace with others who have lost a part of themselves too. Losing and feeling lost goes hand & hand now.
I can see that over these past few years I have grown. I have triumphed and failed over big and small challenges. I am here. I have been enlightened. I've seen God's hand at work in so many areas. It's amazing to witness and yet, mostly I am at a loss for words- completely unable…Continue

I read an article about a grief support group being held in an all boys high school.
