Helping Teens Cope With Loss.

Lately we have been helping our son deal with loss!  Having said that, he has lost several people in his life like grandparents and an aunt but he has not had to deal with the death of one of his peers since he was about 4.  Recently, an accident injured two of his friends and claimed the life of another.  It was tough for him, the school and our town.  The accident happened on a stretch of road called 7 Hills where teens like to go faster than they should!  Heck, I did it and my son has done it also!  It is not safe in the least!  It was the week between Christmas and New Years and not the way we wanted to end an old year much less start a new one!

That brings us to today:  The teen tells me that April, one of the injured girls, lost her mom today!  So much sadness and grief in this young person's life!  So now the Moody Teen is coming to terms, yet again, with the grieving process.  I wish his faith were stronger but I know that comes with time and age as it did with me.

Please pray for April and her family as they begin the grieving process back at square one!  This quote came from a facebook friend today, when I most needed it!

Oh my goodness! How sad for those teens. They are already dealing with enough in their lives as they are on the cusp of becoming adults.
