Feather Your Nest

Comfort grief pillows

   Sleepless nights...                           


You need a comfortable nesting spot in which to do your griefwork. Although you may be dealing fairly well with your bereavement, you may find some difficult spots at night, when you crawl into bed. You watch an old movie on TV, then tackle a nice boring novel to get to sleep.

But then, the old grief demons lurk in the shadows, don't they? I'm so sorry, we don't really have a cure for that; sadly, you must work it through yourself. But we do advocate comfort. Make your nest as soft and comforting as possible. Perhaps one of the items below might might be just the thing to provide much needed comfort for you at night...

                           Stephen's Pillows

One family who lost their teenaged son Stephen made comforting pillows out of his sweatshirts. They cut off the sleeves and sewed the bottom and arm openings shut, using the neck hole as an opening for stuffing. Each family member stuffed his own pillow half-way and then wrote a letter to Stephen.

They shared their letters with each other, then folded them into very small squares and placed them in the center of their pillow. They then filled them up, and then the neck was sewn shut. As part of the ritual, they shared stories about Stephen. Each used his own pillow for comfort however they wished.
