- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
The Poem That Inspired My Blog's Subtitle
Bear and Babybear
Monday, March 9, 2009
I had a very difficult day. When you are a bereaved parent or spouse, and in my case both, the littlest things set you off. I was already in a very, very, VERY lousy mood when I received the email from aforementioned person.
In my post, I had linked to their post, and this upset them. To my understanding, they were upset not because I linked to them, but because they felt the comments in response to my blog post were negative. I did not get that impression, but it upset me that they were upset. I have since removed the post.
Lately, it seems that I have been doing a good job at upsetting people. I don't even realize I am doing so, and it upsets me so much to think that I'm upsetting other people.
I have spent the bulk of the day in tears, not just because of this post, but because of other frustrations I am having with other aspects of my life.
And so, my dear blog buddies, I would like to thank you for standing by me through this difficult time. It means the world to me that you are willing to stand up for me and be there for me even amid my mood swings.
I have attempted to keep this blog as positive as possible, but every now and then the sad and depressed me comes poking through and, sadly, that is just a part of who I am.
Thank you for understanding, and we shall return to regular blogging program for your viewing pleasure.
