I’m Back. Join Me Friends. Please.

I promised I’d be back after a short sabbatical for the month of August. It’s amazing how quickly days and weeks fly by and I find myself here without being as prepared as I thought I’d be for a new round of fresh posts.

So today I’m sending out an old one, but one which I still feel keenly.

I’m no longer a “walking nerve” but I’m still very much more sensitive to the idea and the reality that every interaction, every experience, every holiday or regular day almost always holds hidden memories, hidden triggers and hidden regrets.

I’ll be queuing up new posts and some exciting news about a book launch in the next few days. Join me. Please.

❤ Melanie

If you are in the early days of this hard, hard journey, do what you have to and find the safe circle that gives you time, space and grace to help your heart toward healing.

It may take longer than you’d like, but resting from the constant pressure of trying to protect yourself from the hustle and bustle in a world where child loss is misunderstood and frequently ignored will make a difference.

  1. I’m so happy you are back. Your posts have helped me through some really tough times, the hardest time of my life. You were my guardian Angel at times. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. A friend who was grieving the loss of two of her children told me about this group. I owe a debt of gratitude to her. Thank you Beth. Most of all thank you Melanie.

  2. Melanie it’s wonderful to see you are back and you have been missed ! I have missed your daily posts and everyone’s comments..you have nurtured a community of us but it so so important you do whatever is right for you and your family. Time rolls on, but we won’t ever leave our children behind ..if anything my love is stronger, and deeper with each passing day. Have been reading your previous posts so I’m still in touch because your faith and love are constants, as is the word of the Lord until eternity. I do know you will have been busy as you are a devoted mother Melanie x


  3. Your posts have been a constant beacon of hope for the past 5 years. Bless you for your insight and honesty as we all adjust to this unwelcome change in our lives. I will be forever grateful.
