Coping with loss

This article I wrote came out on Friday in the Jewish Independent in Vancouver. It's about helping kids learn about death, and leaning on religious rituals to deal with it.
 It's titled:
Rituals can help us with loss

I'm also in the middle of updating some patterns with new yarn selections over at Loveknitting.comIf you'd like to buy a pattern and yarn at the same time, this is a convenient way to do it!

We're having a busy time around here as the Professor is off doing some field research. Sadie is making great progress in training and the exercise and warmer weather is doing us all a lot of good.  By warm, I mean highs in the 60s (18C tops) but to us it feels like a heatwave about now!  We're still occasionally hoping over icy piles of snow on our walks to the park.  I hope they finally melt soon!

We saw mounds of dirty snow left over from all the plowing while we were in Alaska. But unlike ten days later in the year last year, there was no snow on the ground. (Nor were the lupines blooming like crazy along the roadways yet.)

Then we flew home into spring.

But it was amazing how quickly we got used to colder temperatures than what we have around home.

Thank you for sharing your article. I tried to have rituals when our dog died and one of our niece can't accept the loss of our family dog, we get a new dog after the pet cremation chantilly va to forget the sad moments of the loss of our pet.
