Zane was 16 and ill with bone cancer for one year before he went on to his heavenly home. I remember so clearly being by his side as he made his transition. That was the most sacred moment in my life and one I will never forget.
I had cared for him so intently and lovingly through that year. Even though I knew he was very ill, I had no idea what experiences awaited me after his passing.
Amid all of the gut wrenching sadness I have come to know there are many uninvited gifts in my new life now without Zane as a result of walking through grief.
One of the gifts I have experienced is living from the heart. Perhaps like you, the experience of grief stabbed me right in the heart. As my broken heart continues to heal, my love remains for Zane even stronger than ever. I now know that experiencing life close to the heart in everything I do is a rich place to live.
I love horses. I love to ride, train and show. I love to coach others. I now also love to support others in the most gentle, quiet way I can in their grieving process.
We are all thrust into a healing journey from loss that we would never have chosen for ourselves, but we are not alone.
May this community support you … may you know you are not alone … and may we together find some uninvited gifts in our healing journey in this new chapter in our lives.
