We've all heard the expression "God gives, and God takes away". God gave me the most amazing, strong, brave, loving, and inspirational mother that a girl could ask for. Sadly, we've come to learn that soon He will take her away.
I am hoping that this blog will serve a couple of purposes:
- Help me come to terms with the news
- Serve as a personal journal to my son & daughter should they ever have to deal with this, and
- Perhaps help someone else in a similar situation realise that their feelings are normal.
I should say that I've often wondered about starting a blog, not only for my personal life (which let's face it, is normally blissfully normal), but also to write about my experiences as a mother and a preschool teacher. Believe me, I hear all sorts and some of them are amazingly funny and thought-provoking, whilst others are just plain gross!
Throughout Mum's final months (she has been told 3-6), she is also keeping a blog called Jane's Journey where she will write regular updates. I am sure that I will be writing a mixture of posts over the coming months, but I hope that at least some of it will be of interest. If nothing else, these pages will serve as a digital journal!
