Capture Your Grief Day 9 - In Memory

We created our non-profit organization God's Angels Gone Early in memory of our son Gage.  I have felt great comfort in making kits and donating them to local facilities in Gage's memory.  The kits we donate contain a homemade blanket, outfit, homemade hat/headband, journal, "remember" magnet and a packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds.  All of these items brought me comfort shortly after we lost Gage.  I am grateful to all of the people who donate items, money and their time to help make this organization a reality.

I have been given a few pieces of jewelry that help me remember Gage.  I am so grateful for these gifts.  I was given a matching necklace and bracelet from my aunt that was made from rose petals from Gage's funeral flowers.  My husband also had a necklace made for me which helps me to remember Gage. #captureyourgrief #whathealsyourheart

Day 9: IN MEMORY. There is such a deep-rooted yearning that we feel when our beloved children die. This yearning hurts but it also inspires us to get creative to do something in memory of our children. Have you done anything in memory of your child? Maybe it is something your created for them. A tattoo or a piece of jewelry. Did you create a garden? Maybe you created an organization or a charity benefit. Maybe you took up a new practice. A new hobby. Writing, painting, dancing, reading. Share away.
Capture Your Grief is a mindful healing project for anyone who is grieving the death of a baby or child of any age or gestation. If you are not grieving the death of a child but a loved one and would like to raise awareness for the bereaved parents community, we welcome you to take part as well to help us spread the word about our community.
