There is more to the story. Short film coming soon.
You've heard a lot from me throughout the years. I talk really openly and honestly about my grief. I share my heart because it's healing for me. This blog is my therapy.
But I'm certain that there have been times when many of you have wondered about my husband, Brian. You all have cared so deeply for my family, and I know that you care for him too.
His walk with grief has been just as difficult as mine, but far more silent. His grief often lurked in the shadows, tucked away because he had so many things to juggle simultaneously.
But friends, it was HARD. The day Aria died, Brian's world went really dark. He was hurting so much and I could see him wasting away right in front of me. I tried everything I could think of but I just couldn't seem to reach him. There were moments when he seemed happy and okay, but it was all superficial. He sounded good, but he wasn't. Not by a long shot.
And then something really unexpected happened and he started changing. It was like the clouds had suddenly parted and sunlight was washing all over him. His joy was palpable. Hope had returned.
A year and a half ago a film crew came to our home and put together a short film chronicling this story. We are so excited to finally be able to share it with you later this week. Stay tuned. You won't want to miss it.
