I would like to formally apologize to the 3 readers I have for not writing much of late.

My grandmother passed away on March 15th. I have tried to sit and write about her — twice — but neither drafts felt right.

I don’t want to force writing about her. She was a poet herself, and deserves better than that.

So let me just say: I will miss her very much. It feels weird to live in a world where she isn’t.

And that’s why I haven’t been writing.

  2. I am so sorry, Alissa. I do understand your absence though.

    I am dealing with losing a loved one too. Although she isn’t gone yet. She is going. It is really hard. I can’t talk about it on my blog though because my in laws and family read my blog. It hurts too much for them to read about me processing my sadness. My mother in law is the person I feel closest too in Kansas so I can’t even imagine life without her here. And I too agree I just hasn’t felt right to post much on my blog. Hard seasons.

    Praying for you.

  3. words will come when you least expect it.
