My Holiday ‘Grace Space’

Shortly after my Maddie died, the ‘festive holiday season’ came around and {believe it or not} I was not in the holiday spirit. I just wanted my baby there to experience her first Christmas. But, I tried to put on a brave face so that no one knew what was really going on inside my […]

Sitting in the Suck

This week was a tough one my friends. I knew it would be, I anticipated it, and I made arrangements to be able to do what I needed to do to make it through….and it was still tough.You see. Wednesday, May 19th was my Madelyn’s birthday, and the next day Thursday, May 20th was the […]

Grieving Through the Holidays

The holidays are gonna be weird this year. I don’t think there is any way around that. We won’t be traveling like usual. Events will be shorter, smaller, and mostly outside.

Grief And The Gratitude Rug

We live in a crazy time right now. There aren’t really even words to express the myriad of emotions I’ve been through in the last five days of mandated social isolation thanks to Coronavirus. {If we’re getting honest I’ve been basically self-isolating since February 28th so I’m getting pretty good at this.}That being said, I’ve […]

Terrible, Thanks for Asking.

I’m a podcast lover…ok, I’m a podcast binge-er. {…I devoured Serial in 2 sittings, Ted Radio Hour is on constant loop in my car…} But, I’d put off listening to Terrible, Thanks for Asking.Why? I think the answer is in the title. It’s about a real woman who has real {hard} conversations with other real […]

Lead Vests and Soap Bubbles

I promise, stick with me…Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of my Madelyn’s death. I don’t care how well I’m ‘handling it’ leading up to May 20th – this day sends me into a tailspin and I go deep into my mind rethinking everything that was done {and not done} during my pregnancy, in the hospital, […]
