I soar every day. Every single day, since Ron died. I didn’t know that though, until I connected with Soaring Spirits. Soaring Spirits helped me make sense of this incomprehensible experience. My widowed family has helped me take stock of what I have achieved, every little and giant step, given me a place to cry and made me laugh until my face hurt. My widowed family has lifted me through all of the firsts. One of the hardest things I had to do was go back to work full-time and support my family alone. I didn't know if my work had value. I didn’t know if I could do it. I was terrified of the interviews. The way I got through them was to imagine my widowed sisters and brothers whom I met through Soaring Spirits walking down that office hall with me, surrounding me and cheering me on. They had faith in me, when I had none. They helped me soar until I could fly on my own. Long live love.
