Day 6: Something you hope you never have to do.

Something I hope I never have to do? That is easy. I never want to have to bury my child.

I don’t think I could live through it. In fact, I think I would prefer to have my entire family outlive me. I don’t even like typing it here. It seems like tempting fate.

I don’t even want to write about it anymore.

Some days I hate these writing prompts.


Following are the writing prompts for 30 Days of Truth, should you be interested in doing so yourself.

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.

Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

  1. Amen.

    I do not fear dying. But the thought of my children dying before me keeps me up at night on an all-too-regular basis. I don’t know how parents continue living after something like that happens. Makes me almost physically ill to think about, despite having two perfectly healthy kids. Ugh.

  2. That would be my answer too and I also do not want to think about it.

  3. I think we all need a good fart joke to get over Day 6.

  4. You, me, and Jen said the exact same thing. Must be the fear all parents have.

  5. That was my immediate, visceral reaction when I saw that one. I also hope to outlive my husband because frankly, I think I would do better alone than he would. He depends on me far more than he realizes.

    I will never forget when Basil’s dad died at age 63. Basil, Basil’s mom and I had to go to the hotel to tell Basil’s grandmother and sister. Basil’s grandmother – an 88 year old Italian-American woman – broke down in tears and said “A parent should never have to bury their child.” It was one of the saddest, most vivid memories of that whole awful time.

  7. I can’t even read or hear stories of a child being hurt or worse. I instantly hurt on the inside for the child and the family. And then begin to obsess about extra things I can do to keep Stella safe for all of her life.

    I don’t like this topic either.
    Moving on to happy thoughts!
