I have poured my heart out to you, some weeks, months, more than others. So many of you know my inner most thoughts, pains, sorrow, joys. I am not sure why it feels safer to type than speak the words out loud for me, but it does. Instead of telling one of or two of you in person, I have published it for the masses. And what you all have done, is wrap me in your virtual arms and cry. You have given me this safe place to grieve and heal. I have always been so very grateful for this, but even more so after this week. This week I shared Koen with you, unsure of myself, but ready. Over 800 of you saw him, and I was flooded with love and support once again. Not my intention, but the response honored Koen's life, which means more than I can possibly explain. I am humbled. Thank you all for helping me to heal. I am able to live for Koen, be his voice, because of you.
I don't know where my blogging and writing will lead me, but I feel God nudging me to continue. I have signed up for an online class to help me navigate the waters. There is so much more I can do, many ways I can reach others, and my prayer is that this helps me. I just need to find the time and courage to move forward. Thank you for your prayers, love, and support.
I am Jackie.
