Owning your story is the bravest thing you will ever do!
This is the photo that started @alohaglamour.
I PCS’d two months after my daughter, Lauren Taylor, died and PCS’d to Biloxi, MS.
The 1st year after my loss I lived my life in black and white… Just going through the motions of adulting. Until I traveled back to Hawaii to celebrate her 1st birthday. This photo was taken on Lauren Taylor’s, first birthday at Bellows AirForce Base in Hawaii🌺.
Tell me what’s the first thing you see when you look at it?
The Air Force teaches us a LOT of principles/ techniques, one of which is how to be resilient. How to bounce back when it seems as of the odds are against you…when you feel like you are surrounded by darkness.
I’ve heard it says that the greatest loss a parent can feel is the loss of a child. It doesn’t just change you, it demolishes you. That is true. The rest of your life is spent on another level and because of that I thank God for resiliency.
Here’s to living the rest of my life in color!!!
