I Wish I Knew How I’m Doing. I’m Just Not Sure.

People see me, these years and months after Dominic left us and ask, “How are you doing?”

I come up with an answer because that’s the law of conversation-you ask something and I answer, then I ask something and you answer.


Gotta keep that ball rolling.  

If it drops we are both forced to stand there wondering what to do with our bodies, our faces and our thoughts.

But right now, I don’t know HOW I’m doing.

This is a record of my grief journey and a look into the life I didn't choose.

  1. These many words are definitely comforting that I read on this forum because I, too, am one of those grieving mothers. God saw that He needed to take her home almost 3 years ago; she has no more pain, no more suffering, she is in His Care. One day, I’ll see my beautiful daughter, until then, she lives on in my heart ❤.

  2. Melanie, your words are so very true. I’m coming upon 4 years that my son left his pain behind. The ache is still definitely there. Most days I don’t know how I’m feeling. I look forward to getting your emails every day and just wanted to say THANK YOU!
