The Only Way is Through

my journal entry from December 17th

I have not been able to
journal for two weeks
because to do so
would mean I had to
write the words

“My mom died”

I have not
been able to.

She passed away
on December 4th.
It has been brutal,
but today
I was able to write the words.

The only way is through.
I miss you Mom.

    1. Thank God above for how sweetly He has given you the ability to come to a place where you journal this direct feeling and thought. He’s freed your mind and opened your heart. May the journaling journey ease your grief. I love you.
