Thank You

I have been writing this blog for almost 3 years now. I started the blog a few weeks after my mom died on my husband’s server. I had no idea what a blog was or what to do with it. My husband told me to just write, and that’s what I did. About 6 months later, I started this blog on WordPress and moved over some of what I had written so far. And then I just kept writing.

Through this blog, I have shared my inner-most thoughts and feelings. I’ve ranted and raved against life and what it took from me. I’ve cried, screamed, and at times even smiled. This blog is a tribute to my mom and it has been my way of healing. I will always miss my mom. I will never stop loving her. I will keep writing for as long as I can.

One of the most important things about this blog is the people I’ve met through my blog. I am amazed that people read what I write. I’m touched when someone leaves me a comment. People have shared their stories of loss with me, along with their feelings of grief. Through these stories, I have felt a connection and it helped me to continue healing. I also hope that I have helped others as they work through their feelings associated with the loss of a loved one.

On the day before the 3 year anniversary of my mom’s death, I want to say thank you for visiting my blog and reading what I’ve written. Thank you for helping me to continue to move forward after the loss of my mom. I truly appreciate all the support everyone has given me.

  1. Kathy, I am thinking of you, Sept. 16 is when my mom passed away and now every month, I feel particularly quiet and sad on the 16th. I look for signs all the time that her spirit is free of pain now…and I wish that for you. You have a great loving family, she is definitely with you and with your children. hugs, wendy

  2. Kathy:

    When my mom died in February of 2010, I was desperate to find others who shared my feelings of grief and loss. I found your blog and knew you were speaking my language.

    I have read each one and I always find comfort in your honesty. You are one of several who inspired me to start a blog and I have been enriched by the experience. Whether anyone reads it isn’t nearly as important as having a place to record my thoughts and feelings.

    I hope you will continue to write; to let us share in the woman and mother you are now…after. I will be thinking about you as I understand how difficult anniversaries can be. Thank YOU for sharing your heart and your Mother with us…

  3. Thank you for starting me off on my bloging journey!
