As a Christian who speaks French, this shirt really spoke to me. I mean, it’s a verse, and it’s in French. Doesn’t get much more awesome than that, in my book.
Elle est forte.
She is strong.
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
You know, I never really thought I was that strong. But as I get older and experience more things, I realize how very strong I am. And it’s incredible. I helped take care of my mom during her last months here on earth. That was HARD. Not something for the faint of heart. Not something you ever want to do. Not something I ever thought I’d have to do. Then I lost my mom, and went through all of the emotions, the grief, the sadness, the lowest lows, all of it. Then I went through childbirth. I nursed my baby. All of these events were h-a-r-d, and I came out on the other side. Strong. Stronger than I ever thought possible.
I can get through anything, with God by my side. I know this to be true. I’ve felt it, to my very core. And if I can be this strong, anyone can. Trust me. If you’re going through something right now- anything- just know that you aren’t alone. Know that you can get through it. Know that you are strong.
She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. -Proverbs 31:25

I love that top, but I love your story behind it even more. I can’t even imagine how hard that was with your mom. It’s great that you were able to be with her tho
Thank you so much, Julie. :)
I’ve been following your blog since right before your mom passed away. I’ve always been amazed and inspired by your strength!! I LOVE your faith and how your light shines bright through your blog!! You are an amazing person, wife, mother, daughter and friend. I’m so blessed to have stumbled upon your blog. You are definitely an inspiration and an amazing Proverbs 31 woman!!
Oh, Meghan, I am so blessed by you! Thank you for your sweet words and for sticking around here with me. :) It means so much. YOU are yourself a strong Proverbs 31 woman!!
Hi Katie, I love your post. I lost my dad in an accident when I was 18 and I didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to him. I’m 26 years old and that was the most painful period of my life. That grief never ends but I’m still here. Part of me died with him that night and it changed me..in some sad way – it made me stronger. Life can be unfair, but we should never give up. It will get better eventually..you get better. So I feel you and you’re indeed a strong woman! <3
Oh, Adela… Absolutely beautifully put. I agree with every word you said. You are indeed so strong, yourself! Lots of love to you.
Such a cute tee! Love how you paired it with the chambray button up :)
