Beach Heart – #griefheart number 51

#griefheart
Beach Heart

I remember the number of beach trips we took as a family–most great and one disastrous (that story coming soon).  The great memories outweigh the bad. If it weren’t for my family during those years when we were paying so much for care related to Charles’ mental illness and drug abuse, we would not have had any vacations at all. Not that I resent spending the money because I’d do it all over again to try and save my child.

Thank you to both sides of my family giving us breaks. And thank you to Debbie Rosenbaum, a champion of the cause of addiction and recovery, for sending me this #griefheart in the name of Charles.

What is the #griefheart project?

I explain my #griefheart project here.

  1. This is some of my recent poetry:

    The March of Innocence

    The path is broken
    A thousand hands
    echoing torture.

    Purity unchained
    Raging at God
    innocence raped
    honor denied
    Hell’s gaze upon us,
    Christ’s Absolution Ungiven.
    — Wendy ODonnell
