If you have found your way to this site because you have lost someone you love, my heart goes out to you… I am so very sorry for your loss.

Grieving is one of the hardest things you’ll ever do… and while we all grieve differently, it’s helpful to connect with others who have experienced loss. You may feel alone right now, but I want you to know that you are not alone… you are stronger than you know, and you WILL survive this unimaginable pain— one breath at a time, one step at a time, one day at a time.

Losing someone we love is a life-shattering experience, and trying to create a new life without our loved one can seem overwhelming. This website has resources both for those who have lost loved ones, and those who are supporting people dealing with loss. I invite you to read my blog, The Journey from Grief to Gratitude, which includes stories about my grief journey and illustrations from my journals. I hope that sharing what I’ve learned on my own grief journey will help you on yours.

 With love and sympathy,

The Latest From My Blog.....

Hi Everyone,

June 27th is my wedding anniversary. Andy died just a few weeks after we celebrated our 29th anniversary, and I remember being a total wreck on what would have been our 30th anniversary. What made the day even harder for me was that nobody said anything to me that day; not my parents, not my in-laws, not my children, not my friends. When I stopped crying a few days later, I realized that no one had said anything to me because they didn't want to upset me. They didn't understand that NOT acknowledging our special day, or giving me the opportunity to talk about how much I missed Andy, made me even sadder.
