Walking through the aftermath of suicide is hard.
Heather and her husband Scott were married for twenty-three years when she woke up one morning to find her husband had taken his life.
As heartbreaking as it is to say, it was their young daughter that found him. She did not realize what she found. She thought daddy was sleeping in his truck. This set in place a whirlwind of events, from trying to protect her daughter and taking her to the neighbors to calling her four sons to come home before they found out through someone else.
When you as a spouse want to do everything you can for your husband and at the same time deal with the repercussions of not being protected of them and their privacy, it is a very thin line to walk on. She wanted him to have the help he needed to have. Even his closest friends could not see what was going on.
As much as you want to pull someone out of the pit, unless they are ready to climb out, there is not a whole lot you can do.
God has been so good and incredibly faithful to Heather and her children. He has given her beauty from the ashes. Today she can say, It's LIFE, It's GOD, and it's goodness after ugliness.
Recently she has started asking God, "what is my Purpose?"
