It’s been almost a week since I’ve written anything here. I have several posts floating around in my head, but no real motivation to write them right now. In the past when I have gone long periods without writing, it has been because I’ve had little inspiration, usually because I am just feeling really sad and having a terrible time getting any perspective on the grief.

But this time, I’ve had little motivation to write because quite honestly, I haven’t needed to. It has been a pretty good week. And I am working really hard at being okay with that. It is still a struggle, but it is becoming a tiny bit less so each day. And for that, I’m grateful.


  1. Thanks for checking in with your readers. I think about you often and am glad that your week has been ok and that you're trying so hard to be ok with it.

  2. I thought maybe that was the case...and I am so glad. I know EXACTLY what you mean about "trying hard to be OK with it." My experience lately has been much the same...almost as though having things get better is somehow a BAD thing. Rationally I KNOW that's not the case, but emotionally it's a different story...

    Love you, Mandy...hope you are still coming to Topsail in August and we will be able to meet!


  3. Sounds fragile but good; enjoy it as you can. But it makes so much sense that it would be a struggle to feel stable and good. Thanks for checking in.


  4. Okee dokee then. Be well. Hugs.

  5. I can totally relate! I think writing / blogging is such a great outlet for grief.

    I'm glad your week went ok, and looking forrward to reading more off your posts soon!


  6. It's little moments of peace like this that carry so much light. Bask in it my friend...

  7. Glad to hear you are getting a much-needed respite. Sometimes, like a favor, it can be hard to be gracious enough to just accept it. Good for you...

  8. I'm glad you've had good week, Mandy. I can understand why it's unsettling, but I'm still glad to hear it and hope you have many more. Much love, Stacey
