Capture Your Grief 2013-Day 11

CAPTURE YOUR GRIEF 2013 Photography Project 
Day 11: Emotional Triggers
October 11, 2013 ♥

Day 11. Emotional Triggers: What triggers emotions associated with grief for you? Is it the weather? A scent? Photos? Places? Holidays? Words? Certain people?

What is a "trigger?" It's a moment, sight, sound, smell, taste, etc. that can bring the grief of losing a baby to the surface. 

For me, it is difficult to see pregnant women and new babies. It is also hard to see little children around the age Lily would be today. The month of March is a trigger for me because that is the time of year my daughter was born and died and the month of her Celebration of LIFE service and burial. Memories of my pregnancy can be triggers. The hardest triggers are the everyday moments where the weight of Lily's absence feels the heaviest. On holidays and special days of celebration, such as weddings. Should-have-been milestones that will never be reached are very hard.
