Therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ 💛

At 9:30 on this morning 8 years Ago, I woke up to the news that my uncle had decided that this planet was not a place that he could bare to reside any longer. At the age of 28, the age I am now, he chose to leave us without explanation or comfort.

Healing is not linear – mental health recovery

How are we even in February already? My nan spent all of January complaining that it was lasting forever, what was she even talking about?! It flew by!
