Grief is hard work but if you do the work healing can occur. Grieving is mentally, physically and emotionally exhausting but if you accept the grief, accept the pain, accept the tears you can come out the other side.

This November will be three years since losing my 17 year old son Brian in a car accident. The first year was such a fog for me. I spent that year...

I feel that this life is not fair
That at times there’s just loss and despair

The great things we had planned

And then, it happened
Your heart just stopped beating

How could this be happening?
Was this real?
