A Faith-Shaped Hole in My Heart

Faith-Shaped Hole This post may contain affiliate links.  Please read my Disclosure for more information. I will always have a Faith-Shaped hole in my heart.  For those of you who have lost a child(ren), you know what I mean.  For those of you who haven’t, please allow me to explain.

Capture Your Grief – Day 26 – Gratitude

Gratitude is today’s Capture Your Grief topic.  This is a wonderful idea!  I am grateful for so many things!  I am grateful to be alive, to have a wonderful husband, for having 2 wonderful daughters, Faith in Heaven and Joy here with us, for a wonderful family and great friends, new ideas, new business ideas, a roof over my head, food to eat, my health, the list goes on and on… I believe Carly is very accurate Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 13 – Regrets + Triggers

Today’s Capture Your Grief topic is Regrets + Triggers.  I don’t know of any regrets that I have as far as my grief journey.   The one major regret that I do have, however, is that I did not insist on having some of Faith’s hair cut off for us to keep.  When I asked the nurse, she responded that babies at that gestation don’t really have very much hair.  Of course, I didn’t go beyond that at Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 11 – Glow In The Woods

Today’s Capture Your Grief topic is Glow In The Woods.  Goodness…so many people have been a light for me on my grief journey since losing Faith…family, friends, etc… My husband has been a great light for me in my journey.  He is so loving and supportive.  I don’t know where I would be or what I would have done without his love and support.  I have read of so many marriages that fail after such a tragedy as Read More

Family is today’s Capture Your Grief topic.  For the sake of time and length, I will focus this blog post to my spouse and children, as I come from a large family and have many cousins, aunts, uncles, etc…   I also have a number of close friends that I consider family… Faith is and always will be a special part of our family.  She is our first daughter.  However, since she now resides in Heaven, my earthly Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 21 – Relationship

Today’s Capture Your Grief prompt is Relationship.  I don’t really know where to start on this topic. My relationship with my husband has always been great.  It has, however, changed (this is sort-of a given), following our losing Faith.   I have a new love for my husband that I never knew before.  It is difficult to explain, but anyone who is in this same journey understands. I love him more every day in a new way. Now, to Read More

Capture Your Grief – Day 4 – Now

Today’s Capture Your Grief prompt is Now.  When I think about how to describe myself now, I don’t really know where to start… I think I am much more of a realist than I used to be, but I don’t think that is a bad thing.  I look at life through a totally different lense, that is for sure. I have a new love and respect for my husband than I ever had before.  It is very strange for Read More
