Worry is a misuse of imagination. ~ Unknown



P.S. Just in case anyone out there in the blogosphere is wondering, I am still writing for Widow's Voice. I've just chosen for the time being to leave the majority of the widow 'stuff' over there and write about the rest of our lives here. I swore I would never do that....but at times, I just feel that maybe to some people, my 'widow' musings may sound....I don't know, longstanding. I just think that maybe, at times, Widow's Voice is a more appropriate forum for some of my thoughts than here. Unfortunate for me?Yes. Permanent? Probably not. Just bear with me as I get over some of my self-consciousness after the last little hiccup.

And, if you want you are free to read them whenever you so chose.

Jackie .... I totally get that and feel the same way.
I sometimes feel that I can't be "widow-honest" on my blog anymore, but feel free to just let things pour out on WV.
Not sure if it's what I'm feeling from others or it's what I'm projecting onto them.
I, too, hope that it's short-lived.
Just wanted to tell you that .... once again, you're not alone.
Love you friend,
Janine

You must do whatever you want to do. It's your loss and your words. I love reading your blog because it "speaks" to me. Your words reach me and I find myself nodding in agreement whilst reading your posts. Such honesty, peppered with my type of inappropriate humour and my choice of swearwords too ... it doesn't get better than that xxxx

Jackie,
Not sure what the last little hiccup was but I just want to echo what Boo has already said.

Hope Liv's first week was ok, for you and her!

Love ya,
Deb

I did, that, too for a while. Stopped writing about Brent, death, grief. I realized that it was a part of me, though, just like teaching, knitting a shawl, shopping for baby clothes or being a proud Mama of children who were creative at school. So now I write about him again. I write what lives in me at the time. Sometimes the grief is easier & my blog is more lighthearted. Then there are times when it's heavy. Just like it really is.

Don't worry about ruffling people's feathers! It's your blog. They can go elsewhere if they don't like it!

It's your blog. YOUR blog. Not theirs. Don't let anyone else tell you what to write. If they don't want to read it, they can move on. Don't let someone else stifle what you feel you need to do.

I'm a little sad that you feel that you can't express yourself in your own place. Maybe you just need a break. But don't let the bastards get you down. This is your house, not theirs. Hugs.

Aww. I wanna hear it ALL!
What if you leave out the widow stuff and people think it's over and done with?
100% Jackie! I don't want any less.

Big Love,
