Life did not turn out the way I had planned and I can imagine you may say the same thing. I know you would have never chose this pain. I wouldn't have chosen this either. When my daughter was born, we imagined a lifetime with her. We didn't know then that her lifetime would be only 33 days.
After she died we created a simple life, and found joy again-until I was unexpectedly diagnosed with cancer.
Two traumas that I wouldn't wish upon anyone. And although I wouldn't have chosen these paths, I refuse to let them define me in any way other than living my life to it's fullest.
I didn't believe that I could survive each heartache I have felt, but I did and I am. I have learned that love is the source of all life and support is crucial to healing.
Now, my life's work is to support YOU, to help YOU not only to survive but also thrive in this life, to move to the other side where love overshadows your grief.
