The month of February brings Valentine’s Day to the calendar and with that day there are a lot of conflicted emotions. For people grieving a death from suicide there can be a missing card from that dear one who found life so painful. Valentine’s Day is all about love and strong feelings towards loved ones.

Moving into 2018 many of us recognize a milestone. It can mean endurance, affirmation of the loss after struggling with the reality of it, opening to another year of the void, and for some who have stayed with grief for a longer period of time, it might mean new goals for the reconstruction of life. As a LOSS counselor one of the first questions I hear adults ask is, “How long will I be in so much pain?”

In June, we set aside a day to honor our fathers. It is a day where we buy a gift or do something special for our fathers. The traditional gifts that fathers are given on this day range from a shirt, a tie or something for the toolbox, or something else manly. Those gifts are contrasted with the gifts we give to our mother – flowers, a box of candy or something more feminine. The cards are different. Very often a Father’s Day card has a scene that is something from the outdoors or something that is masculine as opposed to the cards that we have for our mothers. Even the messages very often lack the warmth and the care that it has in cards that are meant for our mothers. The biggest day of the year for cemetery visitation is Mother’s Day. Why not Father’s Day?
