Beauty in the Brokenness

Today I’m writing over at A Deeper Family. I love writing there because it allows me to tackle some hard things that I don’t usually write about here. I hate it for the same reason. Today’s post is about my mom’s recent diagnosis with ALS.

My sister and I were standing outside of a restaurant. We had met to talk about my trip to Moldova and to catch up on what was going on in our lives. We were  enjoying a surprisingly beautiful February day and before we said our good-byes, she said, “I don’t think Mom had a stroke.”

Head over to read the rest. I’m sorry for not sharing about this sooner, but I want to honor my mom’s story and to give her and the rest of my family a little bit of time to process it. I thank you all for this space.

    So sorry to hear of your family’s difficulty. My heart goes out to you and yours.

      Thanks, Monika. It’s been a rough couple of months. But I’m grateful for the kindness that has been shown to all of us.
