It has been almost four months since I have posted a blog update. I'm not sure why I've kept silent for so long, but I feel the need to reconnect with you again. To let you know that I'm still chugging away at life, finding joy in the nook and crannies.

I guess over the past few months God has quieted my words and protected my heart. It is hard putting your grief and struggles out there for the world to see. I'm scared that I might not explain myself accurately and people may get the wrong impression of what I'm feeling/thinking/hoping.

Living life with grief is a funny thing. It is ugly. It is redeeming. It is raw. It is overwhelming. And it became too much to share. I couldn't, and still can't, distinguish where I end and my grief begins.

So, I guess this is just me saying hi. Hopefully, it won't be so long next time.


  1. I, a complete stranger, have missed your posts. But I totally get the silence.

  2. Hugs, friend! Your post makes complete sense. I get it.

  3. It does make sense and you are entitled to heal how you need. You have been missed though.

  4. You come to my mind all the time. In fact, I was just talking about you today with a sweet mom I met who still cried as she told me about her baby Sophie, who she lost 6 years ago. I think about you all the time because grief is a common language....no matter the loss.

  5. Complete stranger here but have followed your story. Wondering how are YOU? your health! hope you're well! May Peace and strength continue to hold you up!
