Welcome to my page, a place I built with love, tears, and a whole lot of vulnerability!
A place where you are welcome, every single part of you, always.
Your grief is welcome here. Your joy is welcome here. Your pain and heartbreak and emptiness are all welcome too.
This is a place for community. A community of the hurt and the aching. The confused and angry and devastated. The grateful, the blessed, the loved.
You are welcome here. In all of your emptiness, and all of your wholeness. Both are welcome. Both are appreciated, and noticed, and accepted.
This is a place that allows raw emotion and unwelcome loss an opportunity to guide your heart and your new journey with acceptance and grace. A place to remember. A place to honor, and a place to heal.
I write when my heart shines a glimmer of truth and authenticity. I write when I hear a whisper that says, “Someone feels this too. Let it out.”, and I do. I write when my heart puts words in my mind that feel powerful and important. Sometimes they are, and sometimes they aren’t. Both are gifts.
If you’ve found my page, you were probably led here by grief’s influence. Thank you for being here. Thank you for reading my heart and stories. Thank you for sharing my work, which are small pieces of my soul.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you and welcome!
