Grief Counselor's homework

Robb's employer arranged for us to see a grief counselor.  After our first visit she assigned a homework project..... Bob and I heard the assignment very differently but that's neither here nor there. I heard that I was to paint a ceramic plant pot with something that reminded me of our son. Then smash it and glue it back together.... the repaired pot is no longer perfect but it is whole. That is to reflect the hole in our life without our son and that we can put our life back together. Perfect...no... lots of cracks but "whole" in a sense.

Robb always wanted to have a beach house ... or lake house on the water..so that's what I chose.

This is an interesting project. I'm wondering if it helped to come to terms with your grief. Everybody deals with grief differently. I am hurting for you.

I cannot imagine the grief you must feel. I hope your visits to the counselor help you in some way.
