Hi I lost my mum in Jan 2012 and my dad in April 2014 and I am emotionally struggling because I have lost them in such a short space of time the reason i am asking this is because i am grief counselling to help me deal with my parents loss but is there help and advice on this because i cannot get my head around the fact that i have lost my parents in a short space of time.
All that is going on in my head is lost mum in 2012 and dad in 2014 and i do not know how to get my head around this at all any help or advice will be very much appreciated.
Hope to hear from you soon about this discussion.
I truly do understand your grief; I miss my parents so much. My Dad was like my best friend and my mother was like my sister. I love them both so much; in fact - I just lost my mother in September - and one day I went to reach for the phone to call my mother - just to realize that she was not there. The pain never goes away - however, I try to focus on the many beautiful memories of both of my parents. I have kept a lot of their personal items. I wear my Dad's jacket with pride and my mother room has been left untouched. I carry their love in my heart everyday and speak of the many words of wisdom given to me by them on a daily basis. I love the fact that I honored them as directed by our Heavenly Father.
Know this, your love for your parents will always live in your heart and cherish the fact that you were a loving daughter - you must cherish that - you are the love that has extended from your parents back to you. I love the fact that you loved your parents. Do not love for the void to completely disappear - for their love will always be in your heart. (Ephesians 6:1,2)
