This month marks the two-year anniversary of Not Your Average Widow.
If you had asked me years ago if writing a blog was in my future, I would have told you ‘sure!’ I’d had a few blogs before this one and really enjoyed them. But if you had asked me if I’d be writing a blog under the ‘widow’ title, I would have certainly told you ‘no way.’
I never thought I’d be here, living life as a widow. I never expected this life, never considered it an option despite the inherent risks of our life. Neither of us did. But when life dealt us these cards, I almost immediately knew I would travel this journey in an extraordinary way. I didn’t know how or why, and perhaps I still don’t, but I knew I would be anything but average. I was determined to bloom where I was planted and man, is writing helping me do that.
Thank you, each of you, for reading this blog. For encouraging me, supporting me, and being present for me, I thank you.
Today I cheer for two years of raw, open honesty. And I strive for many more.
