On March 29th, 2015, my world as I knew it was over. My heart shattered as I watched “the love of my life” transition to Heaven. Yes, my father was my world, my idol & my love. We had a very special bond, that even in death could not be broken. I was 29, and was literally frozen with fear. How can I go on? Who would ever be able to understand? Could I possibly open a wound of emotions, that was tucked so deep away in my heart. At 30, I lost my mother within the same year, I lost my everything. I was absolutely devastated to say the least. Why me? What did I do so bad in this world to be an adult orphan at 30?
Rattled with anxiety and depression, I sought out help. I went to numerous therapy sessions, and grief counseling. I was not able to open up or relate to anyone else.
I signed on to Facebook, one sleepless, restless night. I was on a missin to seek out help. In the search engine, I typed in Father… “Fatherless Daughters” automatically came up. Tears welled up. Could this be what I’ve been looking for? Praying for? Well it certainly was. I was accepted into the group by Stephanie Daily. In my world, she is my angel, that my father sent to me. This beautiful and painful group of ladies knew what I was going through. They get it! The hold me up when I can’t. They are ALL my sisters and we are forever bonded by the loss of our everything. I’ve never opened my heart like this before. Offering my personal phone number to numerous ladies, exchanging stories, love, support and encouragement.
I am here today because of Stephanie and all of my sisters! My shattered heart beats again because of this beautiful group of ladies. I am a better person because of Stephanie. My father definitely guiding me to this page, to my new life, & to all my beautiful sisters.
Words cannot express my gratitude and love. My life is greater, my life is easier, my life is a sisterhood.
Thank you will never be enough.
