Tell Me What It’s Like

Writing has been a part of my life since I can remember but it’s been a lifesaver to me after the death of my husband. I turned to writing to help me cope with my loss.

I was angry at God for taking my husband away from me. Eventually, I realized I needed God in my life to get through the pain completely. He’s been gone 13 years this August 2021.

So now, I thank God for the blessings I have and work each day to realize He knows what’s best for me and it will all come in “His timing,” not mine.

  1. Hi Monna. I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. I can’t begin to imagine how much pain and loss you experienced. At least you turned to writing which can help in so many ways. Like you, I was angry at God when he took my mother from me as a child. I withdrew from God for many, many years. When my father passed away in my 30’s, I told him to go be with mom. Although, I didn’t want my father to leave me, I knew his alcoholism was part of his grief for not being able to save my mother all those years prior. People grieve in many different ways. Of course, you know there is no easy way to do it and it remains with you forever. We learn how to deal with the pain and embrace the loving memories.

    I am so happy you are writing again, my friend. I love heartfelt posts because I feel people can relate and sometimes even heal from other’s writing. Keep it up, Monna. Peace & Love xo


    1. Hi Brenda, Thank you for your comment and condolences. You are so right that each of us deals with loss and death in our own ways. Some people judge and think we should “be over it” in a certain time limit. “Not gonna happen.”

      I know that writing is a way of healing and why I turned away from it, I can’t answer that.

      I haven’t actually written anything new lately but I think publishing some of my previous work will spark that writing flame again.

      Thank you again, Brenda and peace and love to you, my friend.

      1. I took a 3 year sabbatical from blogging, right after my divorce. I had to. I had too many other things going on and wanted to be in the right state of mind. We always come back to writing, especially with a little support from our friends. Hugs!


      2. Hi Bren, So true. I didn’t take that long off from blogging but my original blog had so many problems it was best to just trash it and start new. I think we both have a new perspective on blogging and while we may not get tons of readers, the ones we will get will be loyal. Have a great new week. πŸ™‚


      3. Loyal readers are the best imo. The ones who like to engage and contribute to your story are great too. Always appreciate a like or a share too. But I am blogging to share my stories, as are you. There are many who appreciate stories like we publish. We need to get these out there. Enjoy your week! Going to be 60s here later this week. Woohoo!


      4. I agree. There are some who will follow and read. I’m not finding a lot of my files for some reason. I thought I’d saved everything but I may have to retype some stories. I have hard copies of everything but not finding all of the computer saved files.
