Grief programs and groups....

Earlier this year I decided to join a grief group through the College of Nursing at the University of Utah~ It was 8 weeks long, one night a week.
I met the most amazing women in that group. We were all dealing with Loss and grieving...Trying to make it through each day.
I highly recommend something like that if you are ever in the place in life that you need it.
They have groups for children, loss of a spouse, general loss, etc...
On the last day of our class they gave us these beautiful ceramic hearts~ Since that day I have never taken it out of my purse. I carry it with me always.
If you or anyone you know are going through loss, I cannot tell you how much this grief group helped me.
We continue to meet for dinner about every 6 weeks~
They are such an amazing support for me, and I hope I am for them.


  1. This is so sweet and I love that picture.

  2. This sounds like an awesome experience. What a beautiful heart too. You're so amazing for sharing. HUGS!!!

  3. This is exactly what I am going to do, my mother and my sister and I (all seperately though, as we all have different kinds of grief). So happy to hear that it works. Today is two months, and I am not in much better shape than when it first happened.

  4. I went through one of these after my sister died, and you are is very helpful in the healing process.
