There’s no such thing as a ‘good’ time to lose someone you love. Death happens when it happens and it’s never going to wait for you to have a break in life. If you are arranging cremation services in Daytona Beach, FL for a loved one, it can be impossible to keep up with your family schedule at the same time. Here are a few items to help you get through this difficult time in your life.
Allow Or Seek Carpooling
If it’s someone distant enough from your children that they don’t need a lot of time off from school to mourn, you may need help getting them to and from school while you grieve and make plans yourself. If someone offers to carpool with your children, let them. Otherwise, call around and see if someone in your neighborhood has some extra room in their car for your kids.
Miss Some Practices/Games
Even though your children love soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, dance, or whatever activities they’re in to, they’ll surely understand that something important has come up in the life of your family. If they’re able to get rides from someone else and attend the practices or games that go on while you are planning, great. Don’t feel obligated to go along and watch every time, as you normally would, since you are already dealing with a lot. If your kids can’t make it to a practice or two, or they miss a game because of final services, they’ll have to understand that they need to be flexible in their life when something emergent happens.
You might struggle in a normal week to juggle everything and make it all work. When you also feel grief and are working on final services, it’s downright impossible. However, when you lose someone close to you, those who love you will rally around you and offer to help you out in a variety of ways. If someone offers to cook meals for your family, let them. It’s one less thing you have to do. If someone offers to help the kids with their homework while you work on more arrangements, take them up on that offer as well. The more help you can get with the schedule, the more time you will have to plan and grieve on your own.
