I found “Nail On The Head” on a friend’s Facebook page which she found on a page called @ourangelsinheaven – it so describes me.πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

When people ask how I am feeling…..

I don’t know what to do with myself half the time 
I hide it so very well people think I am strong and doing fine 
I have become the master of face masks
And the master of dual emotions that burst out simultaneously

I am strong, I am weak
Holding up and deeply sad
I want to run away, I am frozen in place
Smiles of sweet remembrances & tears of immense loss
I am needy yet needing space
Needing people yet needing solitude
Depressed and then resolute
Optimistic then just want to give up
Needing to express and to hold back
Filled with great faith and filled with great anger
Still believing in the power of prayer but no longer praying in the same way
No wonder my body and my soul are exhausted

Thank you, thank you ALL for your love, support & encouragement – They say it takes a village to raise a child 
Well I say it takes a community to hold on to when you mourn the loss of your child 
These are times when there are no words – only hugs will do 
Love each other this Holiday Season and appreciate having family around you and hug them just a little closer for me
