Grief Help, Finding Meaning in death?

Finding Meaning in death, what does it mean?

We are all human and as humans we struggle to find meaning in experiences and especially tragedies. After a loss we are looking for grief help!  I lost my 20-yr-old sister to cancer, and two husbands suddenly without warning and I haven’t been able to understand the “meaning” to those deaths from my limited perspective.  What I do know is that we must accept those things we have no control over or those things we cannot change.  Part of the journey of recovery is to do exactly that!  I believe there is always a greater force at work that creates meaning from chaos. 

For me at this time in my life and perhaps for you, it’s important to find meaning for our lives after being left without our loved ones.  This means we must find some purpose while we still exist in this physical realm.  We can do this as we create a new identity and do things that bring meaning into our lives.


I believe in the cliché that says, “Everyone comes into our life for a reason, season or a lifetime”.  I know for certain that some of you reading this have entered into mine and we have created experiences that have had “meaning”.  Each experience we have had and will have is meant for our growth and to move us forward on our journeys.  So if you have been part of mine, I say, “thank you” and I am a better person because of you!

Synchronicity- Is there meaning?

I believe synchronicity knows no bounds.  What it does, is it continues to send you information for what you need in your life.  When you allow things to happen you are allowing your best to come to fruition.  After Steve died I allowed good to come and that is when I met Gerry and we married on 11/11/11.  Although not long enough with any of them, yet  blessed to have the years we spent together.

My sister died in September and also my husbands, Steve and Gerry.  They died 14 years and 14 days apart, thus the reason I am writing this in September.  I will light a candle and hold sacred space to honor their love and memory.  The month of September is not all about grief, it also holds joy for me because my granddaughter, Jennah Joy was born on 9/11/05.  Therefore, it is a reminder that in the midst of chaos, sadness, or tragedy there is also joy to be found.  It’s a reminder to look for the good in your life and focus on those things.
