Boy courage and a green bandana – tricia lott willifordtricia lott williford
I miss my son like crazy today. This does not usually happen.
I am the biggest proponent for sending, launching, letting them be brave and free and strong and away for a little while. But this weekend, I miss my kid.
This weekend, Tyler is at Camp Erin, a Grief Camp for children who have lost someone in their immediate family. Peter and I drove him there on Friday morning.
They started this weekend by bringing all of the children and counselors together into a circle to talk about what they all have in common: remembering. They each shared the name of the person they are remembering, and if they wanted to, they shared how that person died.
These little children, all lined up to be so brave. My heart broke over and over and over again to hear their courage.
