I'm a Guest Author

It's funny to write that because I don't consider myself a writer/author. But it's flattering nonetheless that someone liked something that I wrote enough to want to put it on their blog. Especially since they approached me because they think my words may help others who have experienced the loss of a loved one. I would absolutely love to think that what I write here may be able to help others get through such a devastating time.

Check me out over at Hello Grief, a website that's a place to share and learn about grief and loss. Here's how the folks over at Hello Grief describe their site.

We're not afraid to talk about GRIEF & LOSS Hello Grief provides information and resources about grief in order to break through the current culture of avoidance that surrounds death and loss. Instead, Hello Grief addresses bereavement head-on for those who are helping others cope, as well as those who need support on their own personal journey with grief. In a world that doesn't get it, we do.


  1. I think it helps!

    I was thinking about this today. I remember whilst giving birth the doc. said "why are you screaming?" I asked if he had ever given birth.... he didn't answer and he shut up.

    I then thought about professional support. Then thought. Who best than other mothers that have gone threw what I'm going threw to understand me.

    Your blog helps you to get stuff off your chest...but it helps other mothers going through your exact same grief.

    Thank you!


  2. I guess I never read that post. My grief has changed me in many of the same ways you mentioned in that post. Very well wrote

  3. Nice.

    You do write uplifting and real posts. I can relate to a lot that you talk about on here so it doesn't surprise me that you were chosen. congrats mama.


  4. Awesome! Heading over now to check it out!

  5. I find it so interesting that you are more compassionate. I am compassionate for others who have suffered the loss of a loved one. I have FAR less patience, and am therefore far less compassionate to those who ask seek it arbitrarily.... Those who whine for very little rhyme or reason

  6. I really heard you about being a bit scattered. My grief was nothing compared to yours but each failed attempt at starting a family meant one more forgotten dinner in the oven. Congrats on the post x
