elizabethesther When I talk, I use my hands. Also, lots of facial expressions. AND TEARS. But oddly? Almost NO nervousness. Just felt like I was stepping right into my calling. Y'all. I was PREACHIN'! Had such an amazing time connecting with the folks at Collective Church in Fort Worth, Texas. My talk will be available via podcast soon! Photo cred: @robcarmack. 2d

Possible second book? :)) prayers appreciated for my safe travels and courage to speak the words I need to speak. Xoxo. EE. (Details on blog if you're near Fort Worth and wanna come meet up!) 4d

  •   kthrel indeed. And if you are allowed to grieve about certain, acceptable things, you get a very short timeline to "grieve" and get over it... 2w
  •   kthrel ((Hugs)) Just read the actual post... 2w
  •   jaxmom97 This is so true. Grief can take so much longer than the time we're "allowed". 2w
  •   colleencmitch I have come to see it this way, there are two griefs: acute grief and chronic grief. Acute grief is what we feel in the immediate aftermath or loss or trauma. Everyone expects it of us and it more or less socially acceptable. Chronic grief is the cumulative grief we carry from our life's traumas and losses. It is what we suffer silently when everyone thinks it is time for us to be over it by now. It is lonely and hard and we need to talk about it more. Thanks for being brave,EE. 2w
