The Deepest Grief

I know I mentioned earlier this year I planned to create, and stick to, a blogging schedule. Well, the best laid plans…yada, yada, yada.

On February 24th my mother died suddenly. She was buried at Arlington National Cemetery April 8th.

Blogging seemed not so important for the past few weeks. Honestly, I couldn’t even write in my journal for the first week after she died. I’m slowly getting back in the swing of words.

So, I’m participating in Camp NanoWriMo this month. My goal is 10,000 words. The writing stinks. Seriously. But I’ve got to make myself do it.

I’m learning that grief is not a single event. It’s not even a single emotion. I think it’s going to take some time to sort it out. I think writing may be a big part of that.

So, hang with me. I really will create and stick to a blogging schedule this year. Maybe not this month, but soon.
