Lived experience heart— #griefheart number 261

Lived experience heart

My mother-in-law bought this gift for me on her trek across country. She got this on her stop in Nova Scotia, Canada.

She shared the story of this #griefheart project and about Charles. The lady who sold it to her listened. And then she told my mother-in-law her daughter had lost her son to suicide just one week prior.

Lived experience. I wish there were fewer of us with that.

What is the #griefheart project?

I explain my #griefheart project here.

See all #griefhearts so far on pinterest or on this blog by #griefheart category.
