Today marks exactly a month ago since that horrific morning my darling husband and I were involved in a car accident. I certainly don’t have the words to explicitly express how I’m coping without him, the pain is too great. I did however feel strong enough to type this caption out to simply say thank you for all of you who have carried my pain and reached out. The DMs, calls, messages,texts…I’ll eventually find the courage to respond to all of them. I’m overwhelmed by the kind of support and love you’ve shown and for that I say thank you a million times over. I am slowly recuperating from the injuries I sustained however my heart is far from healing. For now, this is all I can manage, till then continue to keep me in your prayers.
