Whipped heart – #griefheart number 83

Whipped heart

This is my 4th of July whipped cream pie. Charles loved whipped cream like I did. Some of you had kids that drank from the milk carton. Not Charles. He sprayed whipped cream directly into his mouth.

Today my heart felt whipped and beaten. There are just days it feels that way.

  1. My Tyler did the same thing with cans of whipped cream! Thursday is the 7 month anniversary of his suicide.

  2. Feeling it with you, Anne. There are days when you just can not push the grief into a corner. It shadows you all day long. These days seem especially more common on or before the holidays. The times that are supposed to filled with family.

    1. Thinking of you this week. Those anniversaries are hard. Of course I have only had one. But that day will always hurt
