The Bachelorette star Emily Maynard shares heart-wrenching words
On her Instagram page this week, Emily penned a touching tribute and shared it with her 650,000 followers. She revealed that it was a very special and emotional anniversary. 19 years ago on October 24, her fiance Ricky Hendrick passed away.
In her heart-wrenching post, Emily included a photo of herself with Ricky. She said, “I’m left just sincerely missing someone that left such a huge mark on my life and heart.”
In her post, the former Bachelorette said, “@elizabethpoplin said the most beautiful words comparing our brokenness to kintsugi pottery, a Japanese art that takes broken pieces and makes them beautiful again. Much like God does for us. We will look different. Our lives will look different. But He will take all of our broken pieces and weave them together in an even more beautiful way than we ever could’ve imagined for ourselves.”
She made it clear that she misses Ricky and wishes he was still a part of her life today. But she is grateful for every part of her story and how it all brought her the life she’s living now.
