    Amazing Katherine. You are amazing. Your writing is amazing. I hope some day that I too will be able to look back at my loss as a defining moment. Right now it is still just a loss. Well said!

      It might not be seen as a positive defining moment right now Suzanne, but it has changed your life as you knew it. That makes it defining. It took me a long time to find any positives in my loss as well. It wasn’t my choice either. Life hands you what it does and we must deal with it whether we like it or not. You are doing so much and doing better than I felt I was at the same point. Your are a strong woman with lots of support. Hugs to you.

        Thanks Katherine. I don’t feel strong. Like you I get up every day. That’s my biggest feat. I have no young children to spur me on. I have the choice of wallowing in self pity or moving on with my life. Some days it’s easier to wallow but it’s getting easier to get up now too. Thanks for your support. It means a lot to me.

          Hugs. It is a bittersweet road to walk Suzanne. Be strong on the days you can and okay with the days you are not. You need both to heal

        Katherine, there are several poems about loss in Carry On Dancing that I hope, when you are ready, you’ll read. Especially ‘The Silence and the Sound.’ I feel like your husband is calling me to tell you to read that one. Hope it gives you some comfort. It sounds like your writing has given you much comfort – I know when I lost my dear friend in January, once I could finally get out of bed, writing my novel was what kept me going…
