November 15th – Heartbreak

Regardless of how much we appreciate our lives here on Earth, we all experience times when our hearts are broken and our souls are shattered. I have experienced such times in my life. The death of a loved one is always hard but the most difficult for me has been the times when loved ones have deliberately destroyed that what is most important to me. That seems to be a recurring theme in my life. 🤷 Unfortunately, the only way to get through it, is to accept it and hope that everything truly does happen for a reason. It does help to know that there are others who understand and who share their ‘words of wisdom’ on grief with us.

“No matter how bad your heart is broken, the world does not stop for your grief.”

Faraz Kazi

“The shattering of a heart being broken is the loudest quiet ever.

Carroll Bryant

“I’d rather love a million times and have my heart broken every time, than hold a permanently empty heart forever.”

– H.C. Payene

“I know my heart will never be the same, but I’m telling myself I’ll be okay.”

– Sara Evans

“It is strange how often a heart must be broken, before the years can make it wise.”

– Sara Teasdale

“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

– Marilyn Munroe

That is it for today, except to share our family news. Our two little ones have made their arrival. Alaska-Rose Charlize was born early Saturday morning weighing in at a whole 4lbs. 14oz. Logan Micheal was born early this morning weighing 7lbs. 8oz. Both are beautiful, perfect, and doing well. While it is a blessing that both have arrived safe and sound, it is sad and unfortunate that, since our family remains estranged, it is unlikely that they will be meeting each other anytime soon.

Take care and have a great day. 💞

  1. Won’t see Alaska-Rose until she gets out of hospital in a few weeks. (Covid restrictions). Will see Logan sooner. We do have photos of both but they are the delivery room ones. 😏


  2. Boy this hit me hard Anne Marie, especially “the shattering of a heart broken is the loudest quiet of all.” And I’m not sure I agree with the, “I’d rather love a million times and have my heart broken every time…sounds too painful for multiple repeats…Thanks friend…

  3. I am sorry Frony – for the grief and the futility of it. Most of mine are relative to my first marriage/raising kids in a dysfunctional marriage. Every few years it has to come back for another round in one way or another. I am so tired of it.

  4. Can you believe it is still a recurring issue? I went through so much to get my family out of that shit for all of us that I really thought it was over. I didn’t grow up in a perfect home but it was a good home. I was so unprepared for this sh_t show. 😳

  5. They say you can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family. So sad when family all can’t get along so my heart goes out to you. ❤️ That being said congrats on the new little additions and I’m so happy they are doing good! I love all your quotes, some how I have found the inner strength to continue on when I’ve lost loved ones. I feel like they would want that, and feel comfort in the fact I’m not alone. 💞

  6. Thank you! I will see Logan in a couple of weeks and will probably see Alaska-Rose by the new year. They are both still in hospital and we have Covid restrictions on hospital visitors. I don’t know when or if they will ever meet each other because of family issues. 😢
