  1. THANK YOU. Just wanted to say that. I read your blog for the first time last night (posted on facebook by a friend) and was hooked. It was real. It was refreshingly real. Thank you. I’m a 50 something wife, mother grandma. i go to work, come home, help take care of my grandson, go to bed. Get up in the morning and do it again and going through menopause (which really can suck the life out of you) and making my husband crazy because I think I’m going crazy. I read my friends facebook posts and feel like I’m the only one stuck in a rut. You changed that. Your open, honest blog gave me much needed perspective even though we are in different stages of our lives….you’re message resonated. I could hug you! My life is good. It’s not a picture perfect facebook post, but it is very good. I like your facebook banner message….about feeling sorry for yourself. I fall into that pit sometimes and then claw my way out again, ususally after doing or saying something I ALWAYS regret. Next time I feel myself starting to fall I’m going to repeat that message to myself…and hopefully catch myself before I actually fall.

    Keep blogging Momof4 because you are a blessing!! Keep the haters at bay 🙂

  2. I lived the same life with my brother as you did with yours, my brother is also gone. Through my tears while reading your story it was like I were reading my own story and I took comfort in knowing that someone else out there experienced the same loss, has the same anger, and still wonders what if?
    Thank you, I just accidentally came across your writings but will definitely find a home within your thoughts from here on out. God Bless

    • I’m sorry for your loss, Carol. I can tell in what you wrote how similar you feel to me—it’s just so…hard. The “what if” is the hardest part. Thank you for reading and for understanding and relating—that alone makes it better for me. God Bless you right back, friend. <3

  3. I just saw your Fat Girl in the Green Bathing Suit post — it was exactly what I needed to read today. Today, for about the 16th time, someone asked me when my baby is due — I’m not pregnant. How do I respond? Every time it happens I feel more and more devastated. The amount of self-hatred that swells up inside me is crazy. Thanks for the post that reminds me of all the things people can’t see…

    • Ria, anyone and everyone who loves you sees those things, those beautiful things. I wish I could give you a hug. For all of the hurtfulness that comes your way, I hope you know that what matters most to the people who matter most are the words you say, the love you give and the kindness you share. The rest of the world can fuck off. You’re exactly who you are supposed to be. Hugs and my love from Detroit. <3
