Just a mom

I am just a mom, just a mom who lost her son to an accidental overdose in the summer of 2015. His heart stopped and my heart broke that day. No, correction. My heart shattered that day. Where does one go to start to rebuild a shattered heart? Where does one go to start over? We start by sharing. I could not turn the sadness inward. I knew that what was missing will always be missing…but those here on Earth deserve what is left of me. I had to choose to make Ryan’s passing purposeful. I had to. I owed it to his memory and I owed it to my sanity. So, to all those who may have lost someone they love to an addiction….let the journey begin.
