I Wasn’t Ready to Say Goodbye

It hit me like a ton of bricks. I knew it was coming. We were blessed with the time we had…I was for sure there would be a miracle. Instead, there I sat on my bedroom floor in a puddle of tears. Not ready to face reality. Someone close to me had passed away. It […]

Hidden In My Heart

Grief has been a theme in my family for a while now. In the past year, my husband and I have lost all of our grandmothers. It has been very tough dealing with the loss of three wonderful ladies. The good news is that they are all with our Heavenly Father. But, it doesn’t make […]
