The Road from Grief to Gratitude

“There is always something to be grateful for.”

Cancer decided to weave it’s way into our family where it took up residence within our dear, beloved brother. After almost four years of treatments he began to lose his valiant battle in the summer of 2014.

Nobody ever told us that having a loved one die of cancer was like watching someone be tortured through a one-way mirror. You can see it yet; you can’t do anything to stop it.

Along with this harsh and painful reality came the realization that everyone’s emotions are heightened and the latent family dysfunction that we had swept under the rug for years began to bubble to the surface of our lives.

All of this collided and brought me down to my knees.

Join me at momondays on May 16th and learn how I managed to dig myself out of despair.
