Rocky road heart – #griefheart number 117


This whole grief process is one rocky road. Highs. Lows. Lots more lows.

It’s not a perfect process. At the beginning, I looked at the stages of grief all neatly laid out. But it’s more like a tangled mess of emotions that go back and forth, up and down, sideways and upside down–particularly with a suicide loss.

This cute little irregular, lopsided heart is from my friend Alison. I have all you guys seeing #griefhearts everywhere.
