For me it's not time that heals, it's the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ. It didn't come as quickly as I had hoped, but it came. 7 long months I suffered with grief and anguish over the loss of my son. For 7 months I prayed daily for peace in my soul. My Father in Heaven knows me. He knows my pains and my struggles. The healing power of the Atonement has allowed me to be relieved of my anguish and grief.
The Savior said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
That's not to say that I don't miss Ben with every fiber of my being every single day, or that I don't cry over such a great loss on a daily basis, it just means that the Savior has given me rest, and for that I am forever grateful.
"The healing power of the Lord Jesus Christ—whether it removes our burdens or strengthens us to endure and live with them—is available for every affliction in mortality."
Dallin H. Oaks
