You Grieve, Girl.

It’s been one year since my sweet momma went to heaven.

One year doesn’t seem real.

Grief is real. It’s raw and hard and neverending. But it’s ok to grieve.

If I’ve learned one thing this year it’s this – people shy away from grief. I get it. I did the same thing. However, this year has taught me that:

It’s ok to cry.

It’s ok to miss them.

It’s ok to talk about them.

It’s ok to talk about them a lot.

It’s ok.

You grieve, girl.

But make sure your grief is healthy.

Don’t turn to the bottle. Turn to God.

Don’t turn to food. Turn to God.

Don’t turn to pills, or anger, or bitterness. Turn to God.

Allow this grief to grow you.

To help you to love deeper.

To help others.

To be empathetic and sympathetic.

So you go on and grieve girl – just make sure you grieve with God.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18
