Black Girl Grieves


At my grandmother’s repast, someone with a camera snapped a picture of me that perfectly captured the face of grief.  Over the years I have worn that visage many times.

Today is the one year anniversary of my mother’s death.

Today marks three months for my husband, too.

I miss them so very much!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear of your mother and husband’s passing! I can’t imagine what it is like to lose a spouse. I can’t imagine the pain you must be feeling. I lost my father to cancer three years ago and I have had a very hard time with it.

    Keep them close to your heart and keep your chin up! Time heals all wounds.

  2. I’m so feeling for you today. Two such hard things. Why did they have to be on the same day? Try and keep your chin up and know we are thinking of you and wishing you well.
