THE FATHER WOUND ~  

 

FINDING YOUR WAY HOME... FROM WOUNDED TO WARRIOR 

 

It’s a privilege of a lifetime to be sharing this gift with women. 

 

This is a project that has been in the works for 32+ years. 

At 6 years old, my life and world as I knew it, was forever changed. 

__________________________________________________________________________________

My father was tragically injured in a baseball accident.

An accident that would impact my Psyche and Spirit in a way I could not comprehend as a tiny 6 year old little being. 

The accident happened on a Sunday morning, with an innocent game of recreational ball...

 

A game that led my father to never come home again.

But the 6 year old waited.

And WAITED.

And waited some more.

Until one day...

 

She was so tired from the pain of waiting, wishing, wondering when her Daddy would come Home. 

She was exhausted, running from crying, suffering and sadness.

Wishing for things to be different ~ to go back in time and change the past.

Looking for people, places and things that would make her feel alive and whole again.

She decided it was time to find another way Home.

AND SO SHE WENT ON A JOURNEY

This is the story and the way in which the 6 year old found her way Home ~

 

After 32+ years of grief, sadness and longing for a father who never came home.

 

It was in the depths of being with my grief and sadness of my 6 year old, in a way that did not run, hide or turn from the pain, that I found myself and my Father once again.

The wounded 6 year old no longer needed to wait for her father to come home.

The search was over.

She was HOME.

GRIEF CAN SWALLOW US OR TRANSFORM US
