After my husband of 20 years died in May 2011, I struggled with devastating depression, isolation and lack of confidence. Camp widow and Widowed Village were very helpful in giving me a sense of community and hope. I started seeking out new friends, groups, hobbies....saying YES to almost everything. I joined a writing circle that was empowering and cathartic. I was asked to read my poetry and short stories at a Poetry and Prose night - twice! I gained lots of enlightenment and confidence talking with other widows since my first camp Widow in 2013. And that gave me the boost I needed to stand up and read my truth in front off a crowd. I still write, but haven't started a blog. Maybe that's my next goal. #howisoar
