When someone leaves or dies, they leave a gap in our lives – we miss them. It is called grief. It is easy to feel alone when you are grieving. However, others may be grieving too…maybe our family or friends.

  • Take a piece of string. As you hold your string, think about other people who might be missing someone; they might be missing the same person as you or someone else, they might feel hurt and upset too.
  • Add a bead to your string for each person you know who is grieving. If you want to, you can say a prayer for them. You could turn your string into a bracelet or hang it somewhere at home to remind you of the people you have been thinking about.
