Sit comfortably and take a few deep breaths. With paper and a pencil, create a life loss timeline. With one end representing your birth and the other representing today, mark on the timeline your experiences with death and loss. Think of the first time you experienced death. How was it explained to you? What questions did you have? Take a few minutes to remember that experience and how you were helped or hindered in your grieving. Now bring your attention back to the children you will lead in this session. Sit quietly for a few moments. Open your heart to be guided by love in all you say and do this morning.
