Sahar’s space at home – Part 3

This is part 3 of a series of posts I’ve been writing about how I am creating spaces at home to keep Sahar alive with us, to remember her always, and have everyone remember her with us when they see these spaces in our home. She was and will forever be my daughter, my firstborn,…

Coping with fear, a new series

These last few weeks I’ve been struggling with a lot of fear, anxiety and worries. It’s holding me back in all my dreams and desires, and takes away the beauty in the everyday. I feel trapped in a hole I can’t get out of, and I realize that I’ve entered a vicious circle that I…

Another angelversary goes by

Today is that day again. The 7th of the month. The day that marks three months since Sahar joined and left this Earth on the same day. Whenever a new month starts my heart breaks a little, knowing that the 7th will soon arrive. I don’t like these days. They only mark how long she’s…
