Often we ask why did this happen

iStock 000012457188XSmall Often we ask why did this happen

Often we ask why did this happen and sometimes we don’t have answers and sometimes they come years later. My daughter called me this morning. We talk every day. She was at a client’s home and there were 4 new foster children there. The 10 year old boy had a very bad attitude.

Sometime throughout the day they had a moment to interact and she discovered his younger sister had died recently. She realized she could relate with him as her baby sister had died when she was his age. She sat down and shared with him “I have been there. It is ok. I am sorry you are going through this.” She told him her experience and he opened up to her and after that his attitude changed for the better.

Now as a family we will be praying for this family that has been through loss.  Our family is not a stranger to loss.

In 2004 our house burned down to the ground and we lost all of our worldly possessions except for the clothes we were wearing to church that day. The worldly possessions are replaceable but we also lost 2 dogs and 2 cats and that hurt the most. Grief is an emotion that can manifest itself in many different ways, anger, sadness, depression and more. I believe this young boy above was in that process and just needed someone to hear him who understood where he was.

Three years after our fire I was at a farm show and rounded the corner and came upon the “Guiding eyes for the Blind” booth and there in front of me was a black lab! I immediately burst into tears. He reminded me of one of the dogs we had lost in our fire and I had not grieved the loss of Thunder. Still today I am challenged when seeing Black Labs- Thunder was a part of our family for 9 years and we had raised him from a 6 week old puppy.
