• Day Eight: “Let your tears come. Let them water your soul.” ~ Eileen Mayhew

    It’s Halloween.  Our family dressed up to celebrate the occasion and passed out fun treats to our trick or treaters.  I tried my best to put on a happy face but inside I was feeling such a deep sadness.  I walked by Jonah’s picture each time I answered the door to hand out treats and each time I wished for our Jonah Wynn to be here to celebrate occasions with us.

    I realize that healing does not happen over night and despite my best efforts to avoid crying there are times I cannot hold back my tears.  But as they say, tearless grief bleeds inwardly so, for day eight of my journey I give myself permission to cry.  I long for Jonah Wynn to be with me, to be with our family, and throughout the day and night I took the time I needed to let my tears flow and the more I cried the more I felt my soul heal.
    Day Eight: Cry, it’s cathartic.


    I believe in being a leader without title and always strive to do better. I am inspired by doing kind acts for others and believe in the power of intention. I don't give up just because I am told something can't be done. I ask why and strive to do the impossible. Hardships happen to all of us (everyone has a story) but I choose to look for the rainbow through the storm. I rely on my husband for support - he is my hero. Education is power and I strive to always learn more. I aim to live each day as if it is my last and choose to show people how I like to be treated. I say what I feel and aim to have the people I encounter leave better than they came. I love my career and do it because it is my passion. Because time flies when you enjoy what you do, I slow time down by being present in each moment. I choose to live now with no regrets of "should have". I enjoy life and the people in it.
