All of these blogs are just me, venting. Some happy, some sad, some angry, some funny. None of them are sponsored by anyone and are able to be read by everyone.
Unfortunately, feelings have been hurt. Friends and family are not always happy with me. I do not protect anyone's identity although some blogs don't mention any names. And although I started just blurting out my feelings and my thoughts, I had no idea that I would make friends!
YES! There are people who read this blog besides the mandatory family members and close friends. Mainly they are fellow widows who inspire me, encourage me and continue to tell me I am not crazy on this ridiculous grieving journey ... and that whatever is happening, it is OKAY. No matter my dilemma or concern they always tell me it's normal ... part of the process. Good friends. Great widows!
I have been fortunate to meet one blogger in person. Time Goes By author lives right in my condo complex. She is busy and active and intellectual and has gotten me involved in the development stage of 3 Rivers Village. We are not friends, but friendly. (I don't think she takes time for friends).
I'm also paying it forward. After being encouraged by The Misadventures of Widowhood when I first found her blog, I am making myself available to friends and neighbors who are interested in blogging. A few weeks ago three of us met in our Clubhouse for a two hour session.
This blogging hobby is just perfect for me!
