Happiness and hope
End in death.

'Love is as strong as death'. And for those of us who have lost a child, we know this is true.

But as the words in the Song of Solomon say, 'many waters cannot quench love'. And neither can death.

Ann-Maree (@anniem_author) is a mother who took this to heart. Her love is stronger than death.

Inspired by the stillbirth of her first son, she wrote her first children's picture book, "You Could Have Been...", written especially for bereaved parents to read to their angel children.
She is a truly inspiring woman and mother, and you can read all about her in the latest interview in the Upset to Setup series, now on the blog (joyhopelove.com/blog or link in bio). You can also click through from the interview to learn more about Ann-Maree and order your own copy of her book.

He’s been walking around all day with his tiny camera like this 👉🏻🤨📷! Ha! And it’s got me thinking about how important pictures are. Especially when it comes to loss and grief. Luckily, the years leading up to Eric’s passing I had a smartphone and took hundreds if not thousands of pics. Including videos! I have quite a few videos of Eric. And honestly looking back, some of the videos were taken when I had a prompting to pull out my phone and record. Such a tender mercy I’ve thought about so many times. Now those are priceless little remnants I have of him and I’m so grateful for that. Some of my favorite pictures are not posed or staged. They are snapshots of him doing things he did everyday with our boys. I can’t stress enough how much these pictures have helped me after he died (even though it can be painful too), but I urge you to take more pictures and videos of your family in the everyday moments. You just never know! The pictures we have of him are priceless to my children also. And it’s the only way Oliver will even know his dad and his voice. 😥 #grief #griefandloss #grievingmother #findingstrong

If you have lost a loved one, I truly know how you feel. You are not alone. It's okay to mourn. Grief comes in waves. But, there will be a day when you wake up and realize that you have to just get on with it. There is a book that I found helpful called " How to Survive the Loss of a Love" by authors Colgrove, Bloomfield, McWilliams.
Sending love to You! ❤❤❤ #grief #mourning #healing #survive #loss #poem #quotes #selfcare #love

On February 3rd, an early and very unexpected call shattered my heart to pieces. My Mom passed away.
💐
Vulnerability and paper-thin energy have left no choice but to surrender to the cold of the unknown. As I navigate this new life and this gaping tear in the atmosphere around me, I can offer only surface gleans of my process:
💐
My Mom was a beacon of Love so powerful- much more so than she ever got credit for while she was here.
💐
Grieving is non-linear. It’s composed of a million contradicting pieces, all of which are somehow true.
💐
Death does not negotiate.
💐
It’s human nature to make sense of loss; story medicine is a potent healer.
💐
When taken by surprise, EVERYTHING comes up for review.
💐
Life and death dance together; they’re not mutually exclusive.
💐
The vapid feed off of tragedy. Claiming and reclaiming energetic sovereignty is paramount.
💐
Life is a fragile gift.
💐
Opening as wide as I can to Death as ally and teacher. I’m going to accept this. I miss my Mom. I will honor her always. 💐💐💐💐💐💐💐

I lost my grandpa this morning. I woke up to two voicemails from my mom, but when I tried to call her back she didn’t pick up. I laid in bed and checked all my social media as usual only to see my cousins post—her last photo with my sick grandpa captioned that he’d passed this morning. What a world we live in — where we can’t wait to let the world know every intimate detail without checking that the people who need to know have been notified. I hate her for posting that. He looks so sick. That’s isn’t him or I guess I should say that wasn’t him. That isn’t the memory I want anyone to have of him. That isn’t how I want to remember him. Ive been blessed to never have had to deal with death until now in my 22 years. And I don’t know where he is now and I don’t know what I believe but I hope it’s beautiful. I hope it’s peaceful. Every night when I was little my dad would recite sayings with my sister and I. Today more than ever I’m tying to hold onto “no one does until they’re forgotten”. I will never forget you ...I love you pap ❤️Dont worry about grandma. My mom and dad are with her and will watch over her. You can be at peace. Fly high. #death #loss #grief #grieving #depression #pain #sadness #resentment #emotions

My vibrant, brilliant, and beautiful sister, would have turned 33 today.
.
When we were kids, Tiff was my idol. I wanted to be just like her. She was an amazing vocalist and artist. She was smart and funny. She lit up the world with her larger than life personality. She was compassionate, tenacious, and infectiously goofy. Tiff encouraged me to pursue higher education and modeled a pathway that made it all seem within reach. She worked arduously for everything she achieved and was nothing short of a wonder.
.
The world was a better place with her in it and is a better place because of her.
.
I love you, Tiff. Now and forever ✨

Not going to lie, I’ve been struggling and socially withdrawing because my #grief over losing #gwendiva and #Bean has been overwhelming. But #violetlight pulled me out of my comfort zone. And watching her at #michiganicefest2018 has brought me so much joy! Not to mention the girls of the Pictured Rocks Climbing Academy who’ve become sisters to her. #grieftogratitude #grieftojoy☀️ #girlswhoiceclimb #thankfulforiceclimbing

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 💛

"Stages" will be playing with 6 other films next Friday in the Arizona Underground Film Festival at the Alamo Drafthouse in Chandler. Tickets are 9 dollars.
The film is part of the Cinephiles Attack! block of films. One of two places "Stages" will be playing next weekend!
The film is about a woman going through the stages of grief and how she over comes that grief. #filmfestival #indiefilm #grief #nevergiveup #dramatic #azuff #jbprofilms #dinnerdate

Today, I am tending to my (and my hubby’s) broken heart. 💔We said goodbye to our sweet Stoli yesterday, after 15 years of adoring her silliness. She was the f’ing best. 😻
.
I’m navigating a grief I’ve never known before. It’s messy. It comes in waves, and flows through me fiercely. Then quietly, and painfully. I want it to go away, I want a numbness that can’t be found. But I also want to stay present and be enveloped in her memories and her sweet little face. We’re finding new ways to comfort and be each other, and I can feel my love for my husband growing even deeper. We miss her, together in all of the ways.
.
People can and are so kind when you experience loss, I’m grateful for their outpouring of love. I feel it. It helps. But, damn this is hard. And will be. 😿
.
Any advice, love, and good vibes are more than welcome. 🌈💜

I sit here in the quiet of the house as my husband and the kiddos run errands. My mom-in-law just left having helped pack up our kitchen.
. ..
The quiet is soothing. It calms the swirl of emotions that I’ve carried these last few months. The worry and excitement. The joy and sadness. The weight of goodbyes and the peek at hellos.
..
This is the last time I will sit here in this particular quiet in this particular house. I soak it in and feel its peace seep into my bones.
..
We move tomorrow. We continue on this grand adventure God has beckoned us to, not only the cross-country move, but this abundant life of love and obedience. This adventure I almost missed as fear tried to swallow my hope.
..
But hope won. Its steadiness reminds me to take the next step as it will catch me if I stumble. Its ability to look ahead while embracing all that is behind beckons me forward in strength. Breathing in life.
. ..
Yes, hope has won and I can’t wait to see how it unfolds a thousand miles away.

I’ve been Airbnbing until I can move into my new place, and that got me wondering...If your cat gave you an Airbnb (or Yelp) review, what would they say? 🤔😄 • 📷 @alwaysfancyfinn
