It’s okay to not be okay.

Our sweet angel was due to join our growing family of four on December 18, 2015. So, as you can imagine, as the 2015 Holiday season approaches and with it, Everett’s due date, I’ve been finding it harder and harder to make it through the day without tears streaming down my face. This years Holiday season holds a special kind of torment for our family as Everett was suppose to be our Christmas miracle. In so many ways he still is, but that doesn’t stop the heartache and sorrow that accompanies every family gathering that he is no longer a part of.

Today, a great friend and fellow Angel Mommy helped me realize, it’s okay to not be okay. On Thanksgiving, on Christmas, on his due date, on his Birthday, and on any other day of the year that hits me harder than the rest. It’s okay. No matter where you are in your grief journey, it’s okay. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. So this Holiday season give yourself and your loved ones some grace and remember…

It’s okay to not be okay.
