Sympathy

26 Apr

I was buying an anniversary card at CVS for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law.  I was in CVS and couldn’t find the cards so I was wandering up and down the card aisle and found myself in the sympathy/get well/encouragement section.

There are cards there for people who had surgery.  There are cards there for people who lost a mother, a father, a grandparent.  There are cards for people who lost a pet even.   “Your pet is like a member of your family…”

There are no cards for people who lost a child.   There are no cards for people who lost a baby.  There are no cards for us who lost a member of our family.  A human member, not a pet member.

Do people just not know how to deal with sympathy for us?
