“Honestly, what was I going to tell my barista? ‘Yes, we’re flying to Europe. I just miscarried our baby…we had a terrifying health scare…I’m suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder…and we’re feeling pretty far from God right now. So, yeah, going to Italy seemed as good a place as any to just run away from our life and justifiably eat gelato twelve times a day.'”Since Georget shared her inspiring story, the post has gone viral, with 225,000+ likes and more than 100,000 shares. The post seems to have resonated with readers as it details the struggles that we all face and the internal, emotional scars that events in our lives can leave.
