There is no blueprint for grieving. There are not any steps, directions, or instructions to understanding our pain. There are no words of wisdom that can change our situation and no medicine to heal the wound left when our heart breaks. I cannot give you any advice or a recipe on how to grieve, nor tell you how long to grieve, how you should feel, or what actions to take to cope with your pain. I can only say that God does not make mistakes. I can also share with you my experiences, my journey, my faith, and my glory dance steps of life. Your season of being with the love of your life who has gone on to glory is over. Accept that and don't put a question mark where God has put a period. I can only tell you what God did to heal my pain, and what He did for me, He will do for you. This life He gave me is a present, and each day I wake up is me unwrapping that gift. If I hold a pity party rather than trying to discover what God would have me do, it sends a message to God that I do not appreciate His gift. Life's road bends, twists, goes up hills, into valleys, streams, rivers, over mountains, into pot holes, and around curves. Around the next bend may be heartache or happiness, pain or pleasure, sunshine or rain. Regardless of what lies around the next bend, God is always there, waiting with outstretched arms to either catch you if you fall or teach you how to fly. When you get to the end of your rope hand it to God, He will tie it around your waist and help you stand.

About the Author:

From the projects to progress, from welfare to wealth, from homelessness to happiness, from sexual abuse to success, from drug abuse to the boardroom, from domestic violence to victory, from rape to recovery, from discrimination to discovery, from racism to realizing her dream, this author has seen it all. It took eighteen years to complete her undergraduate degree. Barbara continued on earning several graduate degrees. Her husband and her were together for forty-seven years until his death in August 2004. Together, they parented four children, including a set of triplets, born in the same year as their oldest daughter. Barbara always thought of herself as a strong woman capable of handling any situation. She was the first woman and the first African American to hold positions of deputy administrator of the District Court, the Supreme Bench, and the Circuit Court of Baltimore. She integrated the restrooms in the Baltimore City court system. In 1985 with an unemployment check, a dream, perseverance, and prayer, Barbara started her first company, in the basement of her home. Five years later she started another company to help people with developmental disabilities, homeless people, seniors, and people on welfare. Barbara was inducted into Maryland's Women Hall of Fame, elected 1999 Welfare-to-Work Entrepreneur of the Year, Avon's 1995 Women of Enterprise Award winner, presented the Key to the City in three states, honored at the White House by President Clinton, was a radio talk show host, an international motivational speaker, a community activist, an educator, the author of five published books, winner of more than fifty awards. Because her mother was an alcoholic, her stepfather abused and molested her, it was automatically assumed that Barbara would be a failure. She did not allow her condition to be her conclusion.
