Broken Places

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.
