Today marks the 10 year anniversary of the homegoing of a dear friend. His wife, one of my closest life-long friends, wrote a blog entry of her own. Her feelings so closely mirror my own, and so many of yours, that I asked her permission to share it with the readers of this blog. She is a beautiful person, inside and out, and her words, even though coming from her own grief, will encourage and lift you up in your own circumstances. Please say a prayer for Rhonda and her family, as they relive a life-changing day, while also celebrating a life well-lived. She is a believer that God holds us faithfully
In His Grip!
My daughter, Laura, asked me to be her guest blogger today. The reason is not a happy one, for this day marks the 10th anniversary of the death of her father and my husband Mike Henderson. I first started writing this blog as if I was speaking for all of us (my three children and me) and then I realized I couldn’t speak for all of us, only me. I know my children have grieved differently from me and even from one another although they experienced the same loss. They have tried to protect me from their pain and I’ve tried to do the same for them. Grief is such a personal journey. Although there are many similarities in each journey, they can be as unique and different as each person. So, I will only speak for myself today.
