Nitty Gritty Dirty Grief

Happy Valentine’s Day

Statistics say…..

That if you lose a child, your chances for divorce are 90%.


What a crap-tastic statistic! And you know what its says?

“You have just lost a child, but be careful, you only have a 1 in 10 chance of your marriage surviving. You have lost a child, and you just might loose your family too.”

Rubbish, I say!


No one knows your grief for your child like your spouse. No one else knows ‘that look’ when a child cries in a restaurant. No one else knows how to dry your tears.

No one else knows when you need someone to hold your hand.

No one else will forever cherish that memory.

So, this Valentine’s Day is to my husband…..who is now sleeping on the couch after a dinner of steak and lobster.

No one else knows how to love my children.

No one else knows how to love that memory…..and to love me.

And for all of that, I am eternally grateful.

90% is a bunch of hooey.

Thank goodness.
