"GRIEF RECOVERY"
I hate that. "Recovery" I've heard & read this word numerous times. "Recovery" from what? A drug? An illness? Grief. Grief is NOT anything to recover from. It is something that we learn to live with. It is the underlining of our life. My son is not a sad thing that happened to me. My son is my greatest moment. Logan is a gift, a gift of a love so fierce. His death is painful, a pain so damn unfathomable. I've never felt this extreme depth of pride, love, admiration before him. Everyone has used the expression "I would die for you" but they are just words. Until you watch pink warm skin turn molted & chilled. Until you witness perfect lips turning blue right before your eyes. Until that last breath stabs you in the heart..you sit & stare in shock. In disbelief. They no longer become just words...
Is this what I need to recover from? This is not a drug. An illness. This is a mothers love. A mothers love has no boundaries, here on earth or in the sky. I am my son's mother, I do not have an illness, I am not a drug addict, I am not an alcoholic. I do not need recovery, I need understanding. I need others who have not endured this magnitude of loss to understand. Stop trying to force those who are struggling.. to remain quiet, only to please yourself. Do not compare your feelings of losing your Grandmother, Father, Uncle, & cousin. Stop saying this is gods will, in a better place, happens for a reason, & light at the end of this tunnel. Stop. Close your mouth. && listen. Grief doesn't define me, but Grief has changed me👼🏻💙

This is my bird. This Thanksgiving, she would like to express her gratitude for not being a turkey. What would you like to express gratitude for this Thanksgiving? If you are grieving or missing someone, it can be challenging to find gratitude. It’s okay to skip a year if you need to. 😢. #hope #grieving #griefjourney #community #gratitude #griefsupport #grief #thanksgiving

I am not going to lie and say the Holiday season is easy... I used to LOVE the holidays, but when I lost my Dad two years ago, one of my BIGGEST reasons to smile disappeared when he passed. .
.

Having kids helps because I want them to have a love and wonder for Christmas as I used to... so I am grateful for them keeping me from becoming a total humbug. .
.

But yesterday was hard. Gathering with those I love most and have him missing is still shocking and so sad to me. And I know I am not alone. .
.

I listened to Christmas music this morning and Carrie Underwood’s version of “How Great Thou Art” came on, which always makes me think of him. I stood there with tears streaming down my face, knowing how much he would have liked it. But in that moment... I embraced the sadness because I know that to have such deep life altering sadness, I must have loved a lot too. ❤️
.
.

So, I just wanted to write to ALL my friends who are going through a rough time missing their loved ones - YOU are NOT alone no matter how solitary and lonely you may feel.

Thank you for your strength and protection on my grief journey. Knowing you are with me helps me to move forward with courage, grace and love.

Past life hypnosis pt 2, link in bio✨This one was a hard one to publish because it is mostly fiction, something I feel uncomfortable with trying to write. This is not the kind of story I know how to tell. And truthfully, in a larger way, none of this is really a story, but it is the only way I know how to process life. I am haunted. I am hunted. Past life, future life, current life, it is all happening at once. Memories track me down, they follow me off trains, they come to my work, they sit at the edge of my bed and wait for me to wake up. I am surrounded. I am consumed. If you see me, you are seeing them too, hanging translucently around my neck. You are seeing me getting that phone call, it’s right there on loop inside of me. The story I saw may be a past life, I’m sure there is room for everything to exist I suppose. But when I walked out of the room there he was. There I was. A moment of us fighting, talking, eating breakfast mindlessly. I may just be a girl walking home from work, but I’m really just walking past a million moments. And all versions of me are happening all at once.

We were proud to have worn the traditional clothes of my deceased husband for Thanksgiving.💚 Uli

Lyrics from Beautiful by Carole King as shared by a recently acquired Facebook friend which resonated this morning. Grief is often overwhelming and so, so painful but I try to give others a smile not as a false mask but to drive connection. With connection the mask can fall... #becauseyouhavetotry #caroleking #griefjourney #survivingloss #childlosssurvivor #makingconnections #grievingmummy
I am grateful beyonds words for my time spent volunteering in a palliative care ward. My heart filled to bursting with love for the beautiful souls who acknowledged their imminent passing with grace and such deep peace. Inspired words flowed from my soul with reverence in honour of their eternal light.
💜
Now as each day dawns and each sun sets I close my eyes and remember every look, touch and tender moment shared for I am truly blessed.
.
I am blessed to see your face
And the sparkle in your eyes.
I am blessed to hold you close
And feel the warmth of your embrace.
I am blessed to listen to your words
And share in your memories.
I am so very blessed.
.
I am blessed to just be here 
In this moment, by your side.
I am blessed to spend priceless time
In your presence 
And to see your face light up
When I share a smile.
I am so very blessed.
.
Brought together at this time
We can share love and feel love.
For the light in our hearts remembers
We are but one
And we are blessed.
💜💜💜

My beautiful girl wears her necklace proudly.  I gave this to my mother, when we lost my father and she wore it like a beacon.  Kaliana said “I now have Ga as my angel Mama”. To see her strength bud through each day is a tiny miracle I am grateful for. #mymompat #livingforward #mygirl #minime #griefjourney #grief #thanksgiving #gratitude
•Six months•

Sixth months since you made a dramatic entrance into the world.
Sixth months since the day that was both the worst day and the best day of our lives.
Six months since you made us parents.
Six months since we held you in our arms.
Six months since we said hello and goodbye.

How can it be?

In the last six months I’ve learned so much  about myself, about life, about the world and the people in it. I’ve shed more tears than ever before but you have made me stronger than ever before. You’ve sent us little bits of ‘Jasper Magic’ and we have felt your presence in the beauty of the world around us. We’ve had such dark times but you have also given me a sense of positivity and strength that I can’t quite explain. Our lives are so much richer for having had you.

Although I haven’t done it for a while, I feel that today, I’ve already started to relive the day hour by hour, minute by minute. My day at work may be a little tricky. I feel I may be avoiding looking at the clock today. 
Your daddy and I have planned a lovely weekend together to honour you. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of you, but we will be blowing extra kisses to you this weekend.

Love you with all our hearts little one.

Year 2. 
First, I hope everyone had a gentle Thanksgiving. 
Last year I didn't have much to feel thankful for, my loss, the shock & everything inbetween felt so lost and far away. 
This year was better. Still a missing piece longed for, but better. 
I'm truly thankful for my God, family & friends. 
My family has been the greatest #support system throughout my #journey. I have two wonderful mothers (Mom & Tina) they are my shoulders to cry on when needed. 
My friends are wonderful too. They understand my #grief and the space needed when i'm distant. Thank you for that. 
I've become apart of a whole new community, and have met some amazing beautiful, brave warrior #lossmoms. I'm thankful for them and their advice, thoughts, feelings, truths, & stories shared. 
Last but not least...
My God, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for him to send me on this journey. This mountain he has set before me is not easy to climb, but he's walked with me hand in hand on this journey so far. His love and presence has showed me how to surrender it all to have it all. 
Have a goodnight everyone. Hope you all enjoyed your family. ❤

Today is bitter sweet for me as grief is my companion.  I grieve the relationships that are gone due to death (be it physical and metaphorical) ... and I celebrate the love I once experienced within those relationships!

I made my mom's pound cake yesterday and for the first time it stuck to the pan.  I turned it into strawberry shortcake.. Feels like the cake is bringing me a divine lesson! ❤ #GriefJourney #GiveThanks #MaqEleLLC

I still remember the Thanksgiving after my childhood house burned down.
.
I was already used to mom’s "empty chair” at the table all my life but losing my sense of home and all of her remaining belongings too...well it was too much bear.
.
We tried to gather as a family but I’d be lying if I said the meal didn’t end with yelling and tears. The truth is, I didn’t feel all that grateful at the time and there wasn’t really a lot of space available to honor that because we all grieve differently. And that's okay.
.
But I also know that just because the calendar says it’s Thanksgiving doesn’t mean your weary heart can always get on board. So if that’s you this year, please know that I have been there too and I am holding space for you today. 💛
.
Double tap if you needed to hear this right now.

I have to admit, this morning started out with tears. Tears for what we’ve lost.

But the day is ending with tears. Tears for what we have. Truly thankful.

Was hoping for more of a homecoming reception... got woofed at and made a fuss for 5 mins then before I knew it....Parpy’s a chillin’!! Think I have an exceptionally chilled out dog!

24 November 2017 - It’s 1 year today since you became an angel. Time has both stopped and flown by all at the same time. I cannot believe it. We miss your smile, your hugs, your twinkling eyes, your cheerful laugh, your cheeky jokes every single day. To honor you we choose to remember these wonderful things about you for the rest of our lives 💜 Even though life is not the same, and a piece of us is missing, we walk this journey of grief grateful that you are no longer suffering. I know you are dancing and singing with the Angels. Till me meet again my little Angel Aisha 💜#aishaalwayslovedneverforgotten #1yeartoday #missingmygirl #leukemiawarrior #acutemyeloidleukemia #griefjournaling #griefjourney #bereavement #thankfulforthe6yearswehadtogetherthisthanksgiving

Sometimes your heart is like a coconut. It's hard on the outside and you have to try {repeatedly} to break it before you get to the sweet, wonderful center. The sweetness is worth it. #ThoughtfulThursday #bgr8ful

Happy Turkey Day!  This was Thanksgiving 2007. We traded an old trailer for this 45 pound bird. Grandpa and Riley helped butcher the turkey. Such a great memory. Took over 8 hours to cook!

Signs from you appear when I least expect them... like this butterfly flapping it's wings during our first snowfall. Missing you and really hoping it's a sign and not in my head. #missingyou #butterflies #grief #sadness #signsfromabove #butterfliesfromheaven #griefsupport #loss #griefjourney
Our table is set, six seats to be exact. Four will be filled and two will be full in our hearts.

Blessed heart. ❤️💗💙💙 To all the mamas with saved seats this year, my heart is with you. You are not alone. 🍁

Our question this week we are discussing in the Sister’s In Loss Facebook Group, is what have you gained and are grateful for from your loss this Thanksgiving?

For me, it is you all my Sister's in Loss.  This community of black women who have/are willing to share their stories and shine their lights for the world to see and understand that we are not alone.  I have gained new sisters and am grateful that the loss of our children has brought us together for a greater purpose and calling.  Each of you in this group has something that God is stirring up in you and I'm so blessed that you are allowing me to be apart of your journey by sharing your testimonies and stories on my podcast.

Honestly, I'm even struggling with this idea... the sense of absolutely infinite loss I feel from the hole she has left is indescribable pain. What do I have to be grateful for!!? It feels like such an oxymoron. But that horrible feeling exists so strongly because I loved her so much. Annie was a gift to the world and I was so fortunate to be chosen to be her big sister and to be able to call her my sissy for 21 years. Today, I'm really going to miss making side eye glances at her when our dad makes ridiculous jokes and comments... Miss having her by my side as we celebrate double divorce thanksgivings... miss her annoyingly eating all the fried onions before I finished the green bean casserole recipe (last year I finally learned to buy an entire extra jar for her to snack on) and desperately miss her slightly evil laugh (in only the way a little sis can do) as she purposefully adds a ton more marshmallows to my perfectly concentric circles of marshmallow topping on the sweet potatoes. I am grateful I have these memories- as silly and life mundane as they may be. I know I am who I am today because of her. So yes, I'm grateful for knowing her. I guess I am also grateful that the justice process is starting and that the person responsible for killing her will hopefully be held accountable... everyone tell your family and friends and loved ones how you really feel. Tell them you love them. Embrace the chaotic crazy that is families getting together to share a meal. Be present. 💕

These are Phoebe’s Octonauts. We acted out many Octonaut adventures and rescues in the bath. They came to mind this morning as an image of me struggling to climb back in my life raft floated in my around my mind. I saw myself grasping at all the tools I’ve accumulated over the last 14 months to keep me afloat, like yoga, reading, practicing gratitude, mindfulness like lifesavers to help me swim back to the raft but all I seem to be able to do right now is tread water... I wish Barnacles, Kwazi and Peso et al would rescue me. I wish rescue remained the subject of bath time stories and play. I wish I could do more than just tread water, but I guess at least I’m not drowning. Sometimes treading water is all you can do, sometimes just keeping your head above water is an achievement in itself.. I’ll get back in the boat and I will paddle forwards again but maybe for now I’ll just try to float #childlosssurvivor #griefjourney #headabovewater #rememberingphoebe #childloss #griefhurts #grievingmummy #justkeepswimming #stayafloat

Shannon's Song
.
She is the crown on a hibiscus flower;
The freckles on my arms, 
A sunburn.
She is in my voice when I hear myself speaking...
Singing...
The melody of the piano.
She flickers in my daughter's smile,
The color purple.
A candle.
Her persistent care: the shoes on my son's feet.
She is in the wind in the mesquite trees,
The tall grass growing,
The argiope spider in her web like a jewel across the porch...
She jingles in my change purse,
Fits in my glove box with all the napkins,
Clinks in the cabinets when dishes touch.
She is the expectation of every door bell;
Lives through her belongings, now shared.
She swirls around us in scarves and bundles us in caps and jackets before we step outside in the cold.
Her laughter drifts in the smoke of a bonfire,
Her absence is felt at the Thanksgiving table.
She stretches across every mile of Texas freeway;
Filling the space between pavement and blue skies above.
She comes in dreams,
She falls in tears,
She fills my memory.
She is my mother.

Thanksgiving was my Dad’s favorite Holiday, oh how I will miss seeing him when i enter my parents house, miss hearing him say” Hello Baby”. Every year my Dad will start off by giving thanks for another year of life especially during his battle with Cancer, how life can dramatically change in a year. This year will be our 1st Thanksgiving without my Dad. But my family and I will be surrounded with each other’s love and Mom leading the ship. Cherish each day with your love ones, especially the holidays when we get to see distance family members. I am grateful for having an amazing loving Father. ❤️ & ✌🏼. #griefjourney #inspirationwave #missyouDad #yourlovekeepsmestrong #fkcancer #loveyouunchingo

Thankful ~ Grateful ~ Blessed
What are you thankful for as you celebrate today with friends and family?
I’m thankful for a roof over our heads, my husband, friends and family that keep life fun-filled and in perspective, and every day I get to spend watching the sun rise or set. 
As we gather for meals today and shopping tomorrow, it’s good to remember that sometimes the holidays can be hard. I’m especially thinking of those that have an empty spot at their table this year. So, whether it’s a recent loss, or a loss that happened years ago, I hope you surround yourselves with loved ones. As it is said, “One day it will get better. It may not be today or tomorrow, but one day.”
May your Thanksgiving day be filled with good food, great company, and lots of love. •

I woke up to light coming through the window the same way it has forever.  I face that circling moment of how to face this day, and I can hear you say “you will”. I wonder if you felt then, this enormous pain in leaving your children, and knew I would need to remember for these two little girls I will make happiness for💕. #griefjourney #mymompat #livingforward #thanksgiving #griefsupport

🍁Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. As we offer our gratitudes while sending mashed potatoes and green beans around the table, consider those around you who have lost someone near and dear to them. As the grief story continues, it might not be a majority of the time that we think of the ones who passed away, but there are usually a certain few days during the year when remembering them feels more difficult — and holidays are one of them. Take a breath, a moment of silence, maybe light another candle for them today — live in the “both/and” opportunity of experiencing joy and sadness, merriment and mourning. Wishing you much peace today and into the next. 💕(link on my FB page to an article around this) #givingthanks #bothand #joyandsorrow #grief #griefjourney #embodyedtides

Bringing up a 12ft #christmastree tree, all the ornaments and putting it together IS a #workout!! Whew!! I'm sweating! 
The girls are excited for it and they can't wait to decorate it. I wasn't sure if I was going to be emotionally ready to put it up, but I always figure out a way to push those feelings aside--amazing what we do for #ourkids, right? 
This is the first time putting it up without #teamsteve. We were such a team when it came to this and would joke and laugh as we put things up.  I know that he'd be proud of me. 
Doesn't make it hurt any less.
