Over the last 8 years I have written and posted 280 times. I started this blog in 2009 when I finally accepted the fact that my husband Lane was really gone forever. I was confused, angry and had a tough time dealing with my so called new life. This blog was my refuge where I could be myself, speak my mind and get anything and everything off my chest.
I never expected the response I got. Over 1,000,000 people have visited widowsspeakup.com. Many of you have left comments and given others encouragement and advice.
I think we all realized that other widows were the only people that truly understood the transition from married to widowhood. And what a rough ride it is. This blog was a place for many widows to voice their fears and frustrations. It also was a place where we could share our experiences and successes.
But after 8 years I think I have written all I can that may help other widows. Therefore, after much soul searching I have decided it's time to stop.
I want to thank you all for reading and participating. Your support has given me hope, strength and direction. hope I did the same for you.
Good-bye and good luck.
