103: Is it Ok to Write the Same Story Over and Over?
Play • 25 min

On this episode, we bring you a story that the narrator has returned to and will probably return to all her life. Everyone has their themes and it’s okay to return to them at different points in our lives. Trigger warning…

The story you will hear on this episode documents the loss of a child. If this is a sensitive issue for you, please listen to another episode.

Our student and listener Emily Henderson writes a beautiful story about the loss of her son to brain cancer. In this essay, she uses her husband to tell her story from a different angle. Her husband has big enough shoulders to carry the weight of their grief. This story is in honor of all the fathers out there.

Emily Henderson is a stay-at-home mom, volunteer, freelance writer, and student at Writing Class Radio. Her essays have appeared in Scary Mommy, The Santa Barbara Independent, and Love What Matters. She is currently attempting to run every single street in Santa Barbara, CA.

She writes a blog called  www.myjustrightlife.com You can find her on Instagram @myjustrightlife
