Sheesh…time flies, and I have certainly let this blog get away from me. I have been writing–only in different places. I’ve been back at it on the Detroit’ News MichMoms blog writing about the zany journey of motherhood. I’ve also been knee deep in a very emotional series for Metro Parent on loss. The first in the three-part series takes a look at the grief journey for parents who have lost a child. The second looked at the experience of children who have lost a parent through the eyes of three local kids and their surviving parent or guardian. The third hits newsstands this week and takes a look at the experience of three local parents who lost their spouse and co-parent. I wrote an essay about my experience writing this series that shares a little bit about the process of putting together this emotional series. I can’t say thank you enough to the local parents (and kids) who shared their stories. As I said in the essay, I am humbled by you. May God Bless you!
I am looking forward to writing about some more lighthearted topics here on the MichMoms blog and for Metro Parent in the weeks and months to come. Got lots of ideas, now to find time to get them on paper…er WordPress…er here on my blog. Thanks for checking in!
