Closing down my blog? Nah, not yet

Well, it has been over a week since my mother passed away and I still cannot believe she is no longer with us. My father has asked me twice now if I am going to close down my blog now that she's gone. My answer was "NO". I still have so much that I want to write about. I am sure that I will close it sometime this year but there is still a lot to tell, including being with Mom in her final hours.

With back to school activities now in full swing I will be struggling to find the time to write but I will get there.

Don't close it may need to come back to it someday and it may be that you will want to share this with your children. And like you said, you aren't finished...take it slow and don't rush anything right now...I have enjoyed although I never commented. I learned alot and I appreciate you and how wonderful a daughter you were to your mother. What an inspration you are. Loving you Anne! <3

Take it for someone who has been in your shoes, writing might be the exact thing you need right now. I found it very therapeutic after my father died. Once a caregiver, always a caregiver; your journey is not over yet. You will find that this campaign will stick with you for quite a while. Write about the after affects you go through, it’s important that other learn from your experiences. There’s a course of recovery that every caregiver should know about.
Stay strong my friend and share your wisdom with others,

I have referred a friend of mine to your blog two weeks ago. She needed a source to learn how to deal with things. I'm glad you are keeping this blog. Even though I haven't dealt with this, it's still therapeutic in other ways.
