I am comfortable with my grief!

I share my thoughts and feelings with you today with hopes that an understanding can be met. An understanding of grief felt by a mother, a wife, a friend, a fellow artisan.

Please know that I am okay...

When I share my thoughts just as when I create my ART; I heal just a little bit more.  I am Vonna, the same person in the same body as I was before my son died; I just have a different pair of shoes now, shoes that wouldn't fit you!  I pray you never have to wear my shoes!
I am comfortable with my grief ~ why aren't you?
You can talk to me, you can joke with me, you can be my friend.  I swear I won't bite you or get you sick.  You can mention Jonathan's name in front of me.  I may cry or I may not.  So what you may learn something new! I have emotions just like you and sometimes I just need to be heard, just like you. Please don't judge me. I would never judge you.

I am not afraid of me, so why are you afraid of me?

It's been four long hard years today since my son passed away.  Four years isn't that long as I have a lifetime to miss him.  I go to the park each year and light a candle in honor of my son.  Skateboarding is what Jonathan loved to do.  I go with good memories that fill my head with joy!

I share this video with you in hopes that Jon's friend does not mind, know that I shall be forever grateful to him for sharing this with me! What a treasure to be able to have. I shall go to the park and light a candle in his memory and shall pray for all the others

He's coming down the stairs in the video at .19 seconds in...
