Hello grief, my seemingly constant friend

On January 8th, 2018 my world was thrown upside, my dad passed away suddenly and we were left in a state of grief and shock. Since that day, it’s been a ride-trying to live and trying to handle the grief. Well, my family has faced another tragedy. My sweet grandma “Momo” has gone to be with Jesus.

On May 25th, 2019 my world was rocked again. Not quite as suddenly as my dads, we had a day or two to prepare, but still just as painful. Death is never easy on the ones left behind. Grief is never easy. 

In the last 16 months, I’ve written 2 obituaries, 2 eulogies, and made 2 memorial slideshows. I’ve had to say goodbye to 2 of the most special people in my life. I wasn’t even over my grief with my dad and a whole new wave hit.

All that to say, I’ll probably be gone for a bit. I’m trying to be with family and work on my grief. I know the blog has had to take a backseat for the last few months and I hate that- but sometimes I just don’t have the energy to put into the blog right now. Grief does funny things. It makes your favorite things in the world seem so trivial.

    Sending you love, hugs and prayers for comfort and the peace that passes all understanding. Be kind to yourself but also be stern with yourself if you feel like you are drowning. Grief does funny things. Love you.
