This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
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...

Follower of the Month (May) - I Am Me

On the first Saturday of each month, I will feature one Follower of the Month. This is a chance for me to introduce you to some of the people who are following me, and to get to know them better.

This month's Follower-of-the-Month is Emalee from I Am Me.

Emalee is a fellow angel mom who I met here in Bloggyville. Her blog is sweet and full of love for her son Kenner. Emalee has the most adorable little pup named Meli who my Emma wishes lived close by so they could play together. I wish Utah was closer... I love that Emalee knows sign language!

Without further ado, may I introduce you to Emalee!

3.When did you start blogging and why?

I started my blog in March of 2008 for fun. To update my friends and family of the comings and goings of my life!

4.Tell us a bit about your blog.

My blog has changed a lot since November 2008. I started for fun and now its my outlet my way of expressing how I feel through the loss of Kenner. I feel so much better when I write stuff down. SO my blog is a journey of sorts a Journey on which many other women have traveled. Sometimes its a LONG and HARD DARK road to go down, BUT right now I see the light at the end. IT keeps getting brighter. I don't know if this road will ever end but at least its not as dark as it was 5 and a half months ago.

5.Has blogging changed you or your outlook on life at all?

Yes, I never know how many women have lost babies. I knew it happened I just didn't know it was a commen I guess for lack of a better word it was.
