Challenges for grieving friend

(6 Posts)

I’m posting this here to hide it a little bit. My friend has recently lost someone close to her and I’m messaging her everyday with little challenges to do, if she wants.The aim being a distraction and something pleasant to do at a really difficult time.
Have done play a family game, cook something you’ve never tried before, watch an episode of a comedy programme etc. Would appreciate some more ideas to keep it going a while longer if anyone can come up with anything.

Are you sure that she wants you to do this???

If so -- something gardening? Paint nails?

Did she ask you to do this?

Does she appreciate your input and do the things you suggest? Grief is a very individual thing.

No but she knows they are optional and I’m she and her family are reporting back that she is loving doing them. Otherwise I’d stop. Should have said that- sorry

She does appreciate my input- the no was in response to an earlier question.
Will be stopping in a few days just after the funeral. Just want enough ideas to keep me going until then. Realise everyone is different but this is working for her.
