Welcome to the ninth edition of the GRRYO 1000 Words Facebook Showcase! Since the creation of the Facebook group, we have seen it grow and watched inspiring work being posted daily. We are happy to be able to showcase some of the outstanding work that is being shared.
Words are so unnecessary when it’s enough to see, hear, smell and touch. I hadn’t seen her in almost 3 months. Her absence was felt deeply in the house.

If I have my way, I’ll be on this route until I retire– hopefully with the ability to still climb a set of stairs.

I know these women in a way that I would not know anyone else. We share the experience of disaster. We share the experience of guilt and shame and inadequacy. We share the feeling of mistakes made with the best intentions. We also share the distance we have traveled. We are all mighty in our ways, if only that we’ve made it this far and we’re still standing. We are all of us optimists.
Every week we ask our community to continue a story based on a photo. We have been surprised and overwhelmed by the response. Join us every Monday on Instagram to lend your words to story
