Living my new normal


  • This blog post made me smile. It is so hard sometimes to help those we love along the journey we are on especially when we are carrying our own weight of grief. Part of what helps is knowing that our spouse or significant other is learning to breathe again. I can't even tell you how much I can relate to what you just wrote. I am so happy for you guys! I am so happy your husband has found a hobby and the fog is lifting.  Have a wonderful Mardi Gras party.  Giant hugs and special happy wishes for you both!

  • When time continues to move on after our losses...sometimes we want to fight it - kicking and screaming.  We don't want to be far away from that day - because even though it was so painful - it was when we were WITH our little loves who we lost.  But time moves.  We can't control that.  We move with it.  Finding that new normal is a complex task.  It takes time, and a lot of energy.  I'm so glad to hear that your husband is finding his new normal and learning to enjoy things/people again.

    Hope the Mardi Gras party is fun!! :)



  • Hugs I always say with time we do not forget them we just learn how to live as mommy'e and Daddy's of an angels all the tears and that we learn to say their names and smile instead of cry! BUT in no way does our lack of tears define how much we miss and love them.

    hugs to you dear friend! have fun at your party wish I lived closer :)


  • I am so glad that you have your husband "back". This is something that Jer and I have struggled with as well. We had to learn how to live and love each other again because after Arianna died we became new people. There is so much to this journey that we all still don't know. I hope the mardi gras party goes well and you guys have a good time.
