Living my new normal

Healing in the Book Room

  • You are right, there are so many of us that can relate to this. I had a similar time after losing Ari. My older daughter would go to school and I would just function on auto pilot with the blinds closed. One day I realized I didn't want her to resent her sister for taking her mother with her if that makes sense. I wanted her to think of her as a beautiful Angel not some dark cloud that stole her mother from her. She was old enough to remember what I was like before and I wanted her to still have that.

    I absolutely love the idea of a book room. It sounds so perfect. I love the idea of being able to sit and quilt and reflect on your little guy. It sounds like a wonderful little place. Maybe C had a little help in choosing the idea. :) I hope that you will post a picture of the quilt when it is all finished.
