Beautifully Broken

A simple Facebook interaction between Grieving Moms has brought me to this realization. We are all “Beautifully Broken”. We are all learning how to navigate this new world that we live in.

Some of us use therapy to navigate, some of us cry until it feels like our eyelashes will fall out, there may be screaming, drinking and even some smoking involved. Anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds (Valium, Xanax, etc) are often on board for when it feels like “the walls are caving in”.

But when it comes right down to it, we rely on ourselves, our family and the group of friends that we surround ourselves with. Our tribe, the people we know we can run to when times are tough, they don’t care if our mascara runs when we cry, we talk about our lost child endlessly, or just wanna talk about mundane things so maybe we don’t cry this time.

We are the Beautifully Broken Souls of Franklin County, and most specifically the Hill Towns. We have found each other with this common loss, living in an area so small it may feel like we live in each others pockets. At times that can be a bit claustrophobic, but in times like this, that closeness forges a bond that can’t be found anywhere else. A bond forged by the loss we never wanted, or expected, but it turned us into The Beautifully Broken Sisters of Franklin CountyπŸ’”πŸ’”β€οΈπŸ’™

  1. I love this πŸ’• I too am beautifully broken!!! I lost my son 10 yrs ago this August 29th. He was 28 when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, had chemo & radiation and after two brain surgeries and fighting for four yrs the angels called home at age 33 . He left behind two beautiful sons, ages 3 and 8 yrs. His eldest just graduated from Mohawk. Bitter sweet day.. wishing his dad could of been there & still being so proud of my grandson. My heart breaks for you!!! I didn’t personally know your angel son Connor but have heard so many beautiful things about him!!! I share your pain of losing a child πŸ™πŸŒΉπŸ’•
