When I started this project, my friend Bonnie sent me this link to Madalene’s Monday Hearts. I admired how artistic hers were. Downright stunning. Well, 7 months later, she found me and my #griefheart project and sent me this book full of stunning, artistic hearts. Her story below as well as her thoughtful words of wisdom.
“My hearts actually started as a little tradition I would do for my love on Monday mornings so she would walk out the door and see a little heart on her doorstep. Thus the name Monday hearts for Madalene.
When she got sick unexpectedly and died so quickly i decided to make her a promise on her last days….that I would never stop making her a heart every Monday.
I guess what i want to say Anne Moss is feel me there, feel me as part of your support team, holding on to the promise that although it’s probably unimaginable, the agony and pain will slowly melt and give way to a softness, of knowing that we are so very lucky to have had the love we have in our hearts for our loved ones.
I know suicide comes with such a myriad of so many emotions, I lost one of my very best friends to suicide a few years ago. We all have each other, those of us here, and we can as a village make it through. As with everything in life “it takes a village” and I hope you consider me and all my hearts part of your village.
LOVE WILL HEAL YOU I promise…
I send you all the love one human can hold.”
