We've all dealt with a loss in our lives...family, friend or a loved one. It's devastating. I lost my mom to Parkinson's Disease over 6 years ago and I miss her every day. Time does help and memories are priceless.
Losing a loved one is horrific, but losing a spouse or significant other...I can't even imagine. Yesterday, in my blog post where you can post any question to my readers, Linda ask for people to stop by her sister-in-law Meg's new blog...Grief Speak. Meg lost her husband of 22 years, suddenly, last fall.
We all "write" blogs for a number of reasons and we all "read" blogs for many more. The main reasons are to connect and to share. Even if you never speak, or comment or know the person on the other side of the computer, you are still "connecting" with them. You are relating to them and similar experiences in life. Whether it be through quilting, crafting, cooking or the loss of a loved one...we all need to feel connected. With that in mind, I want to share a blog with you.
Meg started her blog to share her experiences and hopefully help one person in her same situation. Here is a quote from her blog...
"While grief is grief, and it is said that everyone grieves in a different way, there are things that seem universal. There are, however, different challenges that each person faces depending on the other circumstances in his/her life– age being one of them. Unfortunately, I am learning that there are a lot of us middle-aged widows and widowers out there.
I don’t claim to be any kind of expert or to know anything about anything. I am just sharing my experiences, thoughts, and feelings. If you find anything in this blog helpful, then I am glad. If not, then blame my sister-in-law!"
Please stop by Meg's blog HERE. One click can make all the difference in some one's life...yours and hers.
My thoughts and prayers and go out to Meg and her family for their loss and their road to healing.
