I’ve been trying for about a week to come up with a topic to blog about for 30 straight days without repeating myself or boring the heck out of everyone. I wanted to participate last year too, but had the same problem. What do I know enough about to come up with that much original material?
And then it hit me. Lately, I've been feeling really isolated because I’m walking this journey that (thankfully) not many will have to walk. Or at least if feels that way, though I’m sure there are many parents out there feeling the same way after losing a child.
So maybe - if I blog each day about how I’m feeling and where I’m finding healing - maybe just one person may stumble upon it one day and feel less alone.
Later today I’ll post a little more about why this experience is so isolating for me (despite an outpouring of love and support from family and friends, near and far) and it will be focussed on stillbirth, but for the rest of the month, I hope those who have said goodbye to a child at any stage will find comfort and inspiration.
day 1: the in-between
day 2: the goodbye
day 3: brokenness
day 4: I’m the lucky one
day 8: time moves forward
