Holy Shift - Suddenly widowed with four young children. A stay at home mom with no clue how to live life as a widow. Manual not included! A calling I didn't ask for and one I didn't want. A rusty resume, being in the driver's seat in a way I never wanted to be. Having hope, & optimism against all odds. We're stronger and more resilient than we think.
On May 31, 2011, in the blink of an eye, life changed in an instant. My husband, Sean was killed in an auto accident. This is my story while keeping my sanity intact by learning to laugh when life can literally suck!
Holy Shifts... Letting Go of Anger, depression. A glimpse into heartbreak. Talking honestly about our pain, being scared, alone, weakness, awkwardness, and the strange and sometimes beautiful transition between this world and whatever comes next. Navigating through sadness, fog, numbness, self-doubt, anxiety, alone and feeling inadequate. Holy Shifts happen! Finding humor I learned that it is possible to find again. Taking shattered dreams by creating new ones.
Involuntarily single - A real-life account of what it's like to date a widow. By tackling the events of my life with a wonderful mix of humor, sorrow and most of all - honesty! Love, laughter, food, and girlfriends. I could feel normal again. My hope is to bring awareness, compassion, humor to getting comfortable with the uncomfortable. When the going get's tough the tough get going. If you’re looking for humor and randomness you've come to the right place.
