Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments on my last blog post. Your love and kindess truly helped. I had to take my time when I responded to your comments because I cried through each and every one of those emails. But it was a good cry.
So the good news I bring today is that I am ready to give my sorrow space. I am ready to face it and make room for it in my life. Articulating what I'm feeling is painful (soooooo painful!) and writing it out always brings tears. But this process is part of my healing. There's no going around it. I have to go through it. And there's no fast way to do it. I'll just keep going through the motions and one day, the memories will bring be comforting rather than heartbreaking.
Since I haven't been around much, I never did get to share with you that when my Momma passed, our very dear friends, Harriet and Anita, had a star named after her to celebrate her life. How cool is that? My Momma will always be watching over me.
That's kind of why I am motivated to start blogging again. I had a conversation with my sweet friend Hope about a month ago. I mentioned that I was feeling like I completely wanted to stop blogging and Facebooking because I did all that for my Momma. Hope very gently said, "Then you should keep doing it. She may be waiting for your next post." First I laughed and then I cried. And now I'm here. :-)
Thank you for being here. xo
