Grief Can Take Your Breath Away

Grief can take your breath away in the literal sense of the word.  For me, I can be going about my day, and something will come to my mind and I burst into tears.  The tears seem to flow out of my eyes like a water faucet, and it feels like they won’t stop.  I reflect on what brought the tears to begin with and the intense emotions. Within this week my mind went back to when our family was complete, all six of us, we were all together under one roof.  Our household was busy with four children, playing Legos, riding bikes in the front yard, doing  their homework, making meals, laundry, Paul always had a project he was working on.  Some days were full of laughter and some days were stressful, and that’s ok, because this is part of life. The tears do stop flowing, and I can catch my breath.  It’s when I catch my breath, I begin to pray, and tell the Lord I’m thankful He is with me.  I’m thankful to have had that busy household, we had joy and lots of love.
Thank you for visiting.  Have a blessed day.


  1. Maybe its God's way of making you pause to celebrate your joy. Family rocks!!! Your path is yet to be discovered. Maybe you should consider writing a book about your sorrow- losing a child and your husband. Your words are like a melody. It would be healing to many. Love you!!
