I would be a liar if I told you that I don't have broken places in my life and heart. While grief is the greatest among them, it is not alone. I don't think anyone goes through life without having circumstances or people leave cracks in our spirit.
I've been through three major life-changing tragedies in my life. All three involved the death of someone or something. I wouldn't wish these events on any person.
Each one shattered me...and yet, somehow, I have survived each one.
During the lowest points, I didn't want to live, but I did.
These circumstances caused me to lose my health, my hope, and my heart, but I found each one again.
I truly do believe
I have grown strong
In my broken places.
