|Introduction||On January 25, 2005, I lost my husband. Welcome to my random thoughts about losing James and finding myself again. For in this journey called Life, "there is no such thing as a negative experience... only opportunities to grow."|
|Interests||A wife, a lover, a bestfriend… until fate decided to play a game on me… That's when I realized that I have one more, and the most important, role to play- that of being a mother to my three bereaved young children. I started this blog with the hope of inspiring others and helping them deal with the overwhelming aftermath of a sudden loss or tragedy in the family.I love to write. I went through my grief process by writing in my journal every single emotion that I felt and every single milestone in my journey towards healing. "I didn't get here easily, you know. Believe me, I had all kinds of criticisms for staying so long in my grief. But taking my time to heal was all worth it. Grief is a normal and natural response to any loss. Have no fear and let it run free. It is OK not to feel OK.Express it and then release it. I created this blog to share the light I have seen at the end of the tunnel with everyone who is in the same journey. The comments I have received from you validated that I have somehow achieved my purpose."-Pinklady, January 23, 2009, 11:11P.M.|

Would I even want to sleep? Pure bliss!
