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.

One thought on “Bereaved Parents Month 2021: They Aren’t Just “Things”, They’re Memories”
Each morning just before I join you, I fasten on Luke’s watch. It is on it’s third strap now as leather straps get mighty worn and grubby after a while. However, the strap which was his is safely tucked away in the box. It has his DNA in it’s make up and I can’t bear to throw it away.
I have other watches which I wear occasionally. I somehow can’t keep them on too long without wanting to return this one.
My head tells me it is silly, my heart tells me I carry him with me daily 💔
