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.

are-you-ok

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!
