    Wow, Bobby – three things to be immensely proud of! Congratulations on getting your daughter through kindergarten and for your new wellness plan – self-care is SO important in this widowed life! We’re so happy to have you as a part of our community (though we wish it were under different circumstances), and thank you for sharing your inspiring story with us!

    “We don’t really NEED to process our joy like we do our pain.” Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’ve struggled with this for so long, and these words just unlocked something for me! Where you take photographs, I write. I’ve always felt guilty about not writing the happy times. I have journals upon journals of processing the hard stuff. I worry about the portrait this will paint after I’m gone (“Wow – she was a miserable person…”). But you’re right – we don’t need to process the joy like we do pain. Guilt, be gone! :)

    Lisa, I’m so incredibly sorry that you have a reason to draw strength from these blog posts, but I’m also happy that you found Widow’s Voice and Soaring Spirits. There is comfort to be found in being connected with others who have experienced a similar loss. Please know that we will be here ready to support you in the coming days, weeks, and months. Sending so much love your way…
