A Mom's Journey through Grief

To every Mom who has ever lost a child...and to every Mom who may have lost perspective of what really matters...

Two years and 3 months later I can honestly say: It is only by the Grace of God! Today it is easier, but...everyday it still hurts, everyday I still miss my Son Philip so very much, and to be perfectly honest...everyday I still get a little angry, but it is short-lived and God's abundant grace and mercy flow over me and take control. If not for HIM I know I wouldn't be here today with a sincere desire in my heart to help others who are grieving.

With that being said let me take the time to explain my current situation. First of all this "blog stuff" is all new to me so please bear with me as I try to journal the most tender parts of my heart in an attempt to allow my experiences to help you.

If you read my first and only blog you realize that I am presently in Portugal with my friends who have been called to the mission field. Therefore, I don't have the luxury of my personal laptop with me or much time for writing and posting while here in Portugal.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I hope the introduction was enough to intrigue or encourage you to stay tuned because I do plan on pursuing this more diligently when I am back in the United States. (Home Sweet Home)
