“Walking, I’m listening to a deeper way. Suddenly, all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” – Linda Hogan … Thanking the thousands that reached out, a reminder that love is indeed, the most compelling and connecting force. That even I, am never alone … for raindrops never, ever fall alone! 🙏🏾 Today, I feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude and reassurance. Thanking you all from the bottom of my heart and through to the very top!!! #RainDropsNeverFallAlone

My father died on saturday. I’m a mess. It’s not a dream. If you are grieving too, this is for you, from my broken heart to yours. From a mind in a fog to yours. I wish us well in our walk with grief. #GratitudeAlways

26.01.2020 / 18.12 I was never prepared for this, dad. Why now? I’m still lost for words and don’t even know how and when I’ll be able to accept the biggest loss in my life. I am going to miss you so so much. REST EASY, DADDY!!! I love you and will see you again. Love, your one and only daughter.
