Healing in Nature

By Tiffany A. Dedeaux

I have a Shropshire Lad rosebush in my backyard because it was created the year my husband’s son–my stepson–was born.  I find it interesting the role nature can play, even unconsciously, with those who grieve.
There is also something healing in being of service or caring for another even if that other is a trail, bush, or—also in our case—a tree.
How has nature played a role in your healing after a loss?
