Grief is something we all experience at some point or another. If we didn’t love the person we lost we would not know the depth of this emotion. June is a month of growth and sunshine, but for my family it brings about many special and beautiful days. The beginning of May will always be known as the month my mother died. But June will always be the month and reminder of celebration for me.
You see, My grandfathers birthday is June 6, which coincides with my parents anniversary. My mothers birthday is June 11 and my fathers birthday is June 18th. Birthdays among my best friend, aunts, cousins and others bring about happiness this month. Pride month is celebrated and love is shared.
I am rejuvenated and appreciative of the happiness and love that June brings. Find those sunshine days among the sadness. Allow yourself to feel each of your emotions with hope knowing that with every storm a rainbow presents.
