“Hand in Friendship” – Just for Today

“Just for Today” for Bereaved Parents – (Section 6)

Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship to another bereaved parent for I do know how they feel.

I must say that I have been blessed by the friendships I have made with all of the dads (and many moms) as part of this GrievingDads.com Project.  I have said this before, but there is healing in helping others and spending time with others that have also experienced this unspeakable loss.  I encourage everyone that reads this to reach out to another bereaved parent to help them but to also help you.

I received the “Just for Today” poem from a fellow grieving dad and friend that I met through this project.  I have been posting separate sections of the poem to ponder.  The poem was written for bereaved parents by Vicki Tushingham.
