Renewed

faith, Grief

Renewed. In a word, that’s how I feel. I’m not “back”, I now know now I’ll never be “back”. And that’s ok. I’m ok. I’m ok, I am ok! I’ll still have those moments, those days, when the missing is too intense, the memories still pinch. I’ll always remember: The pain, the sorrow, the trauma. […]

A Healing Goodbye to Our Dog


faith, Grief, Random

About three years ago, we welcomed our first dog into our family – Bella. Sadly, a few weeks ago, we had to let her go. I had been resistant to getting a dog despite my husband’s and kid’s desire for a family dog. We had a chance to dog-sit Bella a couple times for our […]
