Louisiana needed them and they needed Louisiana…..

download (1)

There’s a part of my heart that will always live in Louisiana. I married and buried in Louisiana. I gave birth to three of my children there. Louisiana is a place that has had high peaks and low valleys. I’ve known a lot of life and learned many lessons in Louisiana.

After the funeral of my first husband (read The Day I Got the Call…), I returned to my apartment in New York with the children. I don’t remember exactly when I had made the decision to move back after his death, but I do remember feeling that it was much needed; for many hearts.

I was given advice. I was told ‘Don’t go’. I got ‘the looks’.

There was one that simply said, “Do what you need to do”.

Louisiana needed them and they needed Louisiana.

I made the decision to go back.

It wasn’t easy from a personal standpoint. Life was different now. I didn’t grieve according to standards that were set for me. I tried to appease. I made choices against my heart. I stumbled some.

But for the reasons I chose to go, I never regretted.

Louisiana needed them and they needed Louisiana.
