Grieving for Presley
One Month after Presley.
Some days I wake up and staying in bed sounds so much better than anything else. There will be mornings I wake up feeling happy. Every day, every hour, every minute and every second all have different emotions. I may feel one way, and then a completely different way the next, but that's okay.
Grieving isn't just one emotion all the time. It's several different ones all at once, or at different times.
I feel like grieving is Love you have for that person, or more than one person. It's love your holding in, because that person is no longer here to show the love to.
I have the personality of a happy person. I'm just generally happy, and I don't usually get mad. I find myself getting frustrated over simple things. This isn't an emotion that I'm used to. It's like domino's... I will feel one emotion that triggers another. I may get irritated over one and I find myself crying over the next. Sometimes I'll feel several emotions at once. I can just be driving down the road, at work, in a store, or at home.... it doesn't matter where I am or who I'm with grieving comes in different forms, and times.
It's okay to grieve. It's okay to grieve differently than anyone else.
This morning, I woke up frustrated, upset, and exhausted. I'm praying for patience with myself. It is okay to feel these. Someone may grieve completely opposite of me. Every situation and person is different, but I won't let having these emotions define me. I'm not a broken person. I'm simply human.

Writing helps me. Speaking out and helping others helps me.

Born July 20th, 2013. Presley Grace was my mini-me from day one. She was full of love, laughter, and could light up any room she went into. Everyone that knew her loved her, and even people who didn't know her still loved her.
On May 13th, 2017, Presley was in a tragic accident where she lost her life. We only had three years with our sweet girl. This blog is to help myself, and hopefully others who are grieving as well.
I'm always happy to help you out with any questions you may have. I love reaching out to others, hearing others who have been through tragedies and being a listening ear when needed.
