Healing

When you've gone through a traumatic experience, does the pain of it ever end? It is true that time heals all wounds, as it is over time that you actually deal with it. I love Seth, and I am thankful he is part of my life. How fragile life is, perhaps this is why I worry so much about him. I think it is much harder looking back on all that happend than it actually was going through it. That is probably why when we read of other people's trials we don't understand how they make it through. Heavenly Father is with us when we are facing these things and that makes all the difference. Perhaps if we remember Him as we mourn for those around us, He can help us through theirs too. I hug Seth, and all my children, a little tighter now, and give them a few extra kisses as other angels return to Heaven, some a little early. "Oh what songs of the heart we shall sing all the day, when again we assemble at home, when we meet ne'er to part with the blest o'er the way, there no more from our loved ones to roam! When we meet ne'er to part, oh, what songs of the heart, we shall sing in our beautiful home. Tho our rapture and bliss there's no song can express, we will shout, we will sing o'er and o'er. As we greet with a kiss, and with joy we caress all our loved ones that passed on before; as we greet with a kiss in our rapture and bliss, all our loved ones that passed on before."

I don't know if one ever truly heals emotionally from a traumatic experience. I don't know the details of your story. All I know is that with time you learn accept and try to understand, and to keep going. I'm 13 years out and although it took many years, I have made peace with my loss. I have learned how to remember the good things and let go of the pain.

I believe that children are a gift. God entrusted us with his miracles

i know what you mean, even though i have grown from my PPD there are times i look back and it still makes me cry and scared. i find the more i have talked about it the better i feel and the more thankful i am for it. (never thought i would feel that way) it is really hard to see the good while experiencing the bad but staying as positive as you can and relying on the Lord, you will grow from it.
