I think the hardest part of grief is wondering whether or not our loved ones are watching over us. Do they have a window in heaven where they can look over us anytime, anywhere? Do they see our every move and do they walk by our sides and talk to us? Do they hold us when we cry in bed telling us everything will be alright?
Hello and welcome to my very first blog post on HBeyou.com. My name is Hillary and I am so glad you found me. I’m excited to share my stories and inspiration with you. Sit down, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy this first post about why I decided to start this blog, what I hope you get out of it, and how I hope it makes you feel.
Happy 2-year anniversary sweetheart. I remember the day so vividly. It was a beautiful summer day in August of 2014 and I was smiling from ear to ear from the minute I opened my eyes that morning. I was marrying the love of my life that afternoon and to me, life was perfect!
It was a day I will never forget. A day that I always heard happened to other people, but I never thought it would happen to me. A day that made me finally realize that the saying, “I dropped to my knees in despair” is actually a real feeling. A day that I don’t wish upon my worst enemy. A day that forever changed my life and many other lives around me.
May I ask for a favor from you? Would you please do one thing for me that you probably rarely do for yourself (or have ever done for that matter)? Would you please take a piece of paper and a pen out and write down 5 physical attributes you love about yourself?
I want to share my husband’s eulogy with all of you because I want everybody to know what an amazing husband, father and friend he was to so many. He truly made me a better person and I am so grateful to him for his love, support and belief in me. I was truly blessed to have a man love me like he did. It’s one thing to write, but it’s another to write from the heart and about someone you loved deeply.
