There are many of you who follow me on Facebook who know that my mom passed away on March 2 of this year. It was very unexpected and the loss has devastated me. My mom and I fought all the time – well not all, but we loved each other just as fiercely. She was my friend and confidant and I’m quite lost without her. She has left a huge hole in my life and my dads and at this point I don’t feel as though I’ll ever move past this deep loss and hurt. Anyhow I wanted to acknowledge the loss here on my blog where I’ve shared many things throughout the years.
Through other hard times in my life I turned to blogging so I’m going to try concentrating on it again. I really want to write short reviews and I’m going to attempt that this week but I will likely share thoughts on my mom and just getting through some days as well.
Reading and listening to books hasn’t been going the best. Im having a really hard time concentrating so not much is getting finished. I did finish The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver for my face to face bookclub. I listened to it and while I loved it years ago when I read it I didn’t enjoy it so much this time. I think it was just too much of a novel for me at this point. Now I’m listening to Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen for my other book club and I’m enjoying it.
So that’s all for now. Hope everyone is doing well. I’ll leave you all with a pic of Sammy and I hope to see you all over the next while as I make my way through this new reality of life I find myself in.
