“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through
each other's eyes for an instant” by Henry David Thoreau
Since we have had so much growth over the past year it is next to impossible for me to send out individual cards. However I wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate your support.
I couldn’t have imagined USMWF would gain so much momentum or I would met so many wonderful people.
The greatest gift anyone can receive is the gift of self whether it is your chronicles, time, expertise, or funds. Many have given one or more and I am extremely grateful for all of you! I know it takes each and every one of us to accomplish change and together we will prevail without a doubt.
You’re Not Alone
These months are especially hard when you have lost a loved one. Anyone feeling the lonely sting of grief please know you’re not alone and although there is really no way to take your pain away there are ways to cope so be patient with yourself and allow yourself to grieve but do so with your support line (family, friends, support groups, counselors and/or your faith). If need please don’t hesitate: Contact one of us at http://www.usmwf.org/volunteer/associates_page.htm
Take the Effort
Those of you who are involved with someone who had a sudden loss no matter what form keep in mind their lives have halted and they truly feel alone in this world. You can help by first and foremost acknowledging their loss by asking them how they are doing. We can only imagine it is not well however they need the opportunity to express it. Be available for them; sit and listen, do not minimize their loss, do small takes for them. At times it may even be difficult for the one grieving to even care for personal hygiene so try to make it inviting.
Whatever you will be doing over the next few months and throughout the year may you have guidance, peace, and understanding.
