My life was changed forever in 2013. Everything I thought I knew……..wasn’t.
The next two years brought more difficult circumstances and what felt like too many changes. I didn’t realize how all of it affected me until I started getting better and part of what helped me come out of the dark was writing about it.
Slowly, tenderly……..a little at a time, I shared the stories on my blog.
Those smaller stories came together as a whole story and were recently published in Shattered Magazine.
When I posted my stories, I didn’t know they would go any further. I wrote the stories for the same reason I write anything…..to let others know they’re not alone, to give hope, teach or encourage, to help unlock a memory, or prompt a question they’ve never thought of asking before.
Maybe it will do one of those things for you.

A beautiful article.
Thank you Paula.
What a lovely story. I’m half-way through my own version. My mom died in 2015 and my dad is on a steady decline. Such a hard stage of life. Thanks for sharing.
Sally, I’m sorry for your difficult season. You’ll have opportunities to comfort others when they go through hard times.
So thankful that God took your story and opened up doors for you to encourage others…like me. So beautifully written, Marie. Love you!
Thankful to be in the business of encouraging others with you. Love you.
