Loving Through Loss: Day 2

Now that I've covered my heart behind why I chose this topic, I thought it might be nice to outline what the month will look like, as well as have a place for all the posts to be linked back to for future reference.

First, let me preface by saying I love organization. Even in the past when I have written here, I have found myself sticking to specific posts on certain days. So when I began thinking about Write 31 Days, I wasn't surprised when I started thinking in seven categories (one for each day of the week).

Starting tomorrow, Saturday, I plan on sticking to the following schedule:

Saturday // encouragement
Sunday // scripture
Monday // tangible support
Tuesday // grace
Wednesday // resources
Thursday // emotional support
Friday // blog shares

Some of the topics I will be sharing could go in a couple categories, but I tried to choose the category that I felt it fit best in. As I wrote yesterday, I am sharing these from my perspective of losing a child, but I feel like a lot of the tips + encouragement can be applied to other losses as well.

Lastly, as a reference, this post will also serve as a place to reference all the posts for the month in one place (see below).
