"When my husband was dying, I said: 'Moe, how am I supposed to live without you?' He told me: 'Take the love you have for me and spread it around."' -via Humans of New York
Yes! Yes, yes, yes!!! Take my love for him and spread it around ❤️ This is one of the ways I'm able to go on living after Ollie's death. Like, I need oxygen, I need food, I need sleep, and I need to spread Ollie's love around ❤️ There's just something about seeing this verbalized.
Hearts, love, and Ollie ❤️ Ollie's life and death have defined the meaning of life for me, and it's all about love ❤️ Another little love sign Maddie and I spotted yesterday on our walk to camp ❤️
Maddie, out of the blue, riding in the car: "I wish Ollie didn't have to die. I wish all the babies with boo-boo's on their hearts didn't have to die and they lived to be old grandmas and grandpas. I wish boo-boo's on the hearts weren't real." Me too, Maddie. This girl is going to help me save the world! Ollie (always) sending love from above to his big sis on a walk ❤️
On January 3, 2013, my 1 yr old son, Ollie, passed away. That's where my life "before Ollie" ends and my grief journey begins... My new normal, my path toward healing, my life "after Ollie". I'm a grieving mother who believes in hope. This is my story.
