“I’ve Walked in Your Shoes” Condolence Gift
I’m at the age now where my friends’ parents are passing away.
I can’t believe it’s been three years already that my mother passed away. We spoke every day and spent a lot of time together, especially during celebrations like family birthdays and holidays.
There is not a single day that goes by that I don’t think of her. I miss her.
It’s one of the hardest things to do in life, to go about your normal routine after you lose a parent. You want to share a thought or an upcoming event only to realize you cannot pick up the phone to call your mother or father.
I’m thankful to my friends and family who helped me through my grief after my mother died.
When a dear friend’s mother passed away, I wanted her to know it IS true that time is a great healer. I’ve realized that all I have to do is think of a precious memory to know my mother is never far away.
When you have walked in someone’s shoes, it’s sometimes easier to find the right comforting words to share.
