Today is one of my late uncles 3rd anniversary in heaven. He was a constant presence in my life since we worked together. We all miss him and mention him daily at work.
It’s also Saint Rita’s Feast day- The Saint of the impossible♥
Three years ago, when my first uncle passed away. I asked for strength because we had two other family members in Hospital. Knowing that we could’ve lost them any minute terrified me.
So at the end of that crazy day I was feeling guilty for not visiting St. Rita’s church and she sent me a beautiful sign that evening that she was present. My room just filled with the strong aroma of roses. We couldn’t explain the source of the smell. (We searched every corner of my room, my clothes…. and then the house) I know I wouldn’t be writing this if she hadn’t been by my side through all this. She sent a lot of people on my journey so I wouldn’t be alone and I’m extremely grateful for that.
I know a lot of people are dealing with hardships and losses. Hang in there and know there’s always a chance to reach out and talk about your feelings. Even if they may seem overwhelming just say them out loud. Remember feelings change all the time so say them proudly even if they’re negative, because you’re definitely not alone.
You’re all in my prayers especially tonight.♥
Beauty In Grief.
You brought out something that’s been buried inside of me for a long time,
And showed me how to face my problems with courage.
You brought out my faith and my loyalty towards the people around me,
And showed me how the sunshine keeps peering from behind all the sadness.
You brought out all the love I thought I had lost,
And showed me where I can always find this never-ending reservoir.
You may have brought out my vulnerability
But you also showed me how to take smaller steps.
You may have brought out my anger and at some point brought me down to my knees,
But you also taught me how important it is to, breathe, feel it all and stay grounded.
