Life is different after losing a loved one.
Finding life after loss is very different for each of us. Our whole world has shifted drastically and traumatically.
Even as we slowly come back to life we don’t get over our loss.
We wouldn’t want to.
Getting over implies moving on.
And to move on implies moving away.
I have chosen to move with.
I have learned to carry my loved ones with me in mind, body, heart and soul.

This has brought me peace. I still feel sadness—I feel the loss and absence of my daughter, Michelle, at every celebration and every holiday. But, in each moment of every day, we are connected when I think of her. This brings me peace and fills my heart with tremendous love and gratitude for the gift of her in my life

May each of you find the peace of connecting with your loved ones.
