There is a fun new YouTube video going around that was created by the awesome blogger over at FreshWidow
It’s a short clip in the vein of all the recent “Sh!t people say” series.
Sh!t people say to Widows & Widowers
It’s hilariously well done.
So this also begs the question….What DO you say to a grieving person?
Perhaps the best thing to say is……. “I’m Sorry”
Then present an inviting stance to the grieving person that would allow a hug if the grieving person so chooses, but not so inviting that would cause awkwardness if the person doesn’t want a hug.
Then promptly DO something for them without asking. Like emptying the trash or doing some dishes….
And make sure you stick around to the end to read the credits…..There is a familiar name in there J
