Kelley Lynn commented on New Paths to Mindfulness 2015-06-09 19:54:49 -0700I love all the ways that you and Sarah continue to love and discover Megan and Drew THROUGH one another – while always building onto your own special thing too. Its really quite beautiful.
Kelley Lynn commented on Colors of Love 2015-06-07 16:44:35 -0700I cant wait to talk with you on the phone soon. I NEED to know the details of your MIL meeting Mike – that is just beyond bizarre, and amazingly beautiful. Drew’s mom sounds like such a special person, honestly. Have a love-filled weekend xoxo
Kelley Lynn commented on Letting Go of my Dream, Making Way for the New 2015-06-06 18:06:01 -0700Wow, that is big. Im not sure Im quite there yet. I look forward to my future now, and I am excited and scared about it, but I still ALWAYS see it as “second best” to the life I would have had with Don. I feel like I might always feel like this version of life is second best – maybe not – but right now, Its hard for me to see NOT feeling that way. Thats amazing that you are ab le to let go of your future together. Im not yet able to.

Kelley Lynn commented on Be Kind 2015-06-05 10:42:36 -0700This picture is soooo powerful. I need to remember to be kind to me. I am really good at beating myself up. Thanks for the awesome words.
As a widowed person, I sometimes feel as if I'm been convicted of something.
Perhaps I did something wrong, and I just dont remember.
Being widowed is sort of like having to plead your case,
take the Fifth,
to a Jury of your "peers",
over and over and over
For some reason,
when you become widowed,
people seem to think
that this gives them the right
to give any and all opinions
on your life.
How you should feel.
What you should do.
How you should grieve.
When you should date.
When you should "get rid of" his things.
Take off your wedding ring.
Get over it.
"It's been 3 months. Why arent you dating anyone?"
"It's been 6 years, and you're in LOVE after only knowing someone for a few months? That seems VERY FAST!"
you know what?
