- 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...

(I'm sure you're all doing this right now, aren't you?)
Home again from my whirlwind trip. It was a lot of fun, though I do wish it hadn't taken such a big chunk out of my bank account. Worth it though. I know money can be made again, but opportunities may not come back. The only disappointment was that a couple girls got sick, and also the fact that I wasn't able to spend as much time as I might have liked to talk to each person individually for any length of time. However, I'm glad I did go and had a chance to meet these wonderful people who have been an important part of my healing process especially in the early days after I lost my daughter.
Today I spent most of the day in a funk, the post-vacation blues, what-have-you. Yet again, the reality of my life slapped me in my face when I came home. The only bright spot was that my dog had returned from her mini-vacation at my cousin's prior to my return and so I got lots of hugs and kisses and snuggles when I opened the door. I think she was slightly worried that I wasn't coming home again, like her daddy.
I'll post more as the week progresses. Right now, I think, I am just going to rest.
