when grief strikes.
There is a reason for the saying “Actions Speak Louder Than Words.” It is because a lot of people open mouth and insert foot when it comes to comforting anyone who is grieving.
Instead of talking do any or all of the following:
- Send a card.
- Send a basket.
- Pray for the family.
- Sit and listen to them vent.
- Take food over to their house.
- Show up at the funeral home and/or funeral service.
Doing requires action. Your actions will speak louder and be more meaningful than your words.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment Rebecca. Have a joy filled day.
PERFECT. I’ll be sharing this one for sure. My circumstances aren’t quite the same as yours, but a lot of it still applies.
A lot of times we are better off just doing instead of speaking, no matter what the circumstances. If you think today’s advice is good, just wait till you see tomorrows.
How true that is. Just simply knowing that you are there during this crisis is very comforting to those that grieve.
Being the silent one behind the scenes means a lot to people. I was reminded of this again last Saturday as I help serve a luncheon after a funeral at the church I attend. Thanks for stopping by to read my blog and comment.
