You wouldn’t think we need permission from total strangers, friends and extended family to grieve but many times it feels like we do.
Odd looks, questioning stares and wagging tongues can make a heart doubt whether it’s really OK to do this or that while trying not to fall apart.
Well I’m here to tell you-ignore all that!

I am a shepherd, wife and mother of four amazing children, three that walk the earth with me and one who lives with Jesus. This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

I am dying from a Broken Heart. I lost my Son last year from cancer. He’s 38. My world shattered. I miss Mijo. I can’t do this.

I am so very sorry for your pain and your loss. It feels like we can’t do it! I totally understand. It’s exactly how I felt in the early days. To be honest, except for the grace of God and His strength poured out to me, there’s no way I COULD have survived.
But one moment, one breath at a time, I HAVE survived and you can too. I’m different and life is not how I expected or wanted it to be.
Praying that you feel the Father’s loving arms around you and that He overwhelms your hurting heart with His grace and strength. ❤
