It has been two years and eight months.....I have survived my son's physical departure. Now I must live.....if I am to survive then I must make the most of what is left of my own personal journey. Still, I survive as a Marine Mom, a mom and a grammy but I must learn to live for myself as well. A new normal is has been evolving, a new me is growing and now it is time to make a life for myself.
May God, Energy, Source, Mother Nature, all our ascended masters, our angels and every source the Universe provided us be with those of us on this most challenging journey. God be with those of you in your darkest hours and know you will survive - this will not pass but you learn to integrate a broken heart into a place of peace knowing that your beautiful child is in a much better place than we could ever imagine; a place of love that even surpasses our love for our beloveds.
Peace, strength and courage keep us sane; angels and our children keep us safe and the God and Spirit of all teach us on this path that we travel today and the rest of our physical lives on earth.
