I Was Living My Worst Nightmare!!
|By Bernice Dickey, Author "My #1 Is Still My #1"|
I woke up one day, married and the mother of two, in an instant I was living my worst nightmare! My husband and 10 year old daughter were both dead and my 1 year old daughter was the lone survivor of the very same accident that killed them. She was critically injured and I couldn't process the enormity of the multiple losses I was suffering at the same time.
The grief and loss I experienced as a result of this tragedy was more than I had ever known anyone to bear, let alone survive. I was just going through the motions of life, numbed by the pain of grief and loss. I didn't know what to do, nor who to turn to, BUT, GOD!
I remember when dates on the calendar would become huge emotional triggers for me because they reminded me of who wasn't here with me anymore. Birthdays of loved ones who didn't live to see milestone ages that others seemingly took for granted. Wedding anniversaries that left me wondering where we would be on a trip celebrating this year, if he were still here.
