"A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling."
This is a blog about widows,
mothers and daughters,
facing change and challenges
and receiving ordinary, everyday blessings that don't seem quite so ordinary anymore.
It chronicles the journey from grief into the restoration of what has been lost.

STARTING OVER ... AGAIN
This is where I am posting about my new beginnings, new careers, new challenges ... all things new with me! For example, my new career at the Oregon State Hospital, or my new adventure as a home-schooling mom. :)

It's an article in the NY Times about grief and grieving. Hope it's helpful! :)

As I was driving home from work last night around 10 p.m. I suddenly felt very quiet inside, and a little empty. The very next song that came on the radio made me tear up a bit. I didn't know what was wrong with me. It's not "that time of the month!"
During the drive home (it's a 30 min drive) I thought about what might be causing this sudden melancholy. As I tried to shake this feeling, I switched gears to thinking about the rest of the week and what I had planned. Then it dawned on me - today is the 18th of June. And that meant that tomorrow (well, today as I write this) is June 19th.
