Patched-up heart – #griefheart 78

Patched-up heart
Patched-up heart

A late birthday present from my oldest and dearest friend, Martha Carroll Bloom. (We are always fashionably late with gifts.)

“Dearest Anne Moss, I saw this heart and decided to donate it to your #griefheart project. The artist cried when I told her where the heart was going. Here’s praying you continue to put the pieced of your heart back together–one stitch at a time. Lots of love, Martha.”

The #griefheart project gives us permission to grieve, honor and remember our loved ones that died by suicide.
