Actress Billie Lourd has taken to X to share a powerful tribute to her late mother, Carrie Fisher. Billie’s post was vulnerable and raw, sharing the ups and downs of the grief she’s experienced over the last seven years.

She started by explaining that each anniversary brought a different sort of grief to the surface. Grief is an ever-moving target, and Billie is identifying that theme clearly in her tribute post.

While Billie Lourd’s photo caption contains some of her tribute to Carrie Fisher, she continued in the comment section to paint a clearer picture of her experience.

Picking up from the caption, she said, “Some make me feel guilty for feeling nothing, and some make me feel all of those things all at once. This year when I woke up I felt grateful — or griefull — if you will. Grief has infused my life with a sense of appreciation I had never had before. It makes me soak up every moment of joy as if it were my last.”

Billie Lourd articulated the overwhelming impact losing her mother Carrie Fisher has had on her daily life.

“Today I was holding my daughter while she was napping in my arms and my eyes welled up with tears of joy,” she wrote. “I laughed at myself then cried more cause I was laughing. I felt my mombys presence like the warmth of the sun on your skin on a hot summer day. The kind of warmth where you unknowingly close your eyes and take a slow breath through your nose and grin. I miss her every day but the cliche is also true – she is with me every day – she infuses my joyful moments with even more joy. As I tell my son, she lives in the stars – and she damn sure makes my life sparkle.”

She completed her post with a message to all others feeling grief this season.

“Sending my love to all my griefers out there. And hoping everyone can feel a little sparkle of griefull among all the feelings grief inevitably brings.”
