Grief Stops You In Your Tracks

By Devany LeDrew | Labels:

A homemade valentine sat on our counter the other day.  It looks perfectly innocent right?  Harmless.  
Except that it stopped me in my tracks.  It sent my heart to my stomach.  Across the room, for just a moment my mind turned it into this:

The frilly pattern and the layering of the colors.  The hole she has left in our lives and my soul was so big at that moment that it took all the air out of the room with it.

Triggers can set off your grief in the most unexpected ways.


  1. so sorry for your tremendous loss <3 hugs mama xoxo

  2. wow that is so powerful. Love you all. Miss her like crazy.
