Learning to live with grief is difficult. Especially parenting grieving children. We all find out ways to cope and feel again. I can a across a great post from a grief blogger @brittanypricebrooker. Thank you! #grief #grieving •

One of the biggest things we have been learning in shepherding hearts and blending a grieving family is that we have to make having fun a top priority. It’s difficult in the midst of the craziness and what feels like constant correction, redirection, and training but we have found that laughing truly is an amazing medicine to our souls. When we are hurting deeply as a family and we can’t seem to get past the heaviness, sometimes we just put on music, dance it out, roll down the windows of the car and scream as loud so we can to get the frustration out and get some giggles too or do something spontaneous like get in the car in our pjs and go to Chick-fil-A. We do not have our life together, we are still daily dealing with the aftermath of death and the deep emotions and wounds it gave us all. We are learning to rebuild, we are learning to be thankful for what we do have even though it looks different than what we did have, and God is constantly showing me my sin and selfishness through it all. This season has been difficult but I know we are building something, and it’s beautiful because Jesus is in it and He lead us here. Thankful for these 5 little hearts God has given us to lead and thankful I get to do it with a longsuffering and faithful man like @danielobrooker.
Also huge thank you to kaitlynbhenderson for the circus tickets this weekend. Was such a sweet and fun time and we are so grateful for the opportunity to have fun together. Also felt like I was living out the greatest showman so that was a plus 😉
