I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
This is a special post for everyone.
Two new things to share.
I put this sign in our front windows for our neighbors to see. We moved to this house ten years ago. If you also follow my personal blog, you’ll know why I have rarely ventured out.
40 years of trauma; 15 years of PTSD; serious physical* illness; got over it; serious physical illness; got over it; Ben disappeared; serious physical illness; got over PTS and agoraphobia (Transformation); getting over latest body sickness; quarantine.
*Not “mortal” as previously written else I’d be a very talented ghost. Duh. *blush*
It’s a bit weird to think that I might be our neighborhood Boo Radley. But that’s okay. I hope to change that this summer little by little. We’re working on a garden. We finally got masks, thanks to my mom! She was given a box and sent us three. So now we can safely go shopping. Rather, my crew can. Thank God for my family. I hope to share our garden bounty with neighbors, and (Kindness Diaries on Netflix) host a weekly barbecue once the quarantine lifts. Or maybe schedule pickups. Haven’t figure that out yet. People need food, and we can grow food. We have a pretty big yard.
I had an idea. I was actually thinking of my friend Terre when this idea came and then I thought I could put it out to anyone
I’d be willing to create 21-day challenges for families in mourning. I can make graphics too. These are three weeks of emails to anyone you invite, and a private thread for connection, to remember a loved one. It can begin with a live video memorial like my friend Mindy did for our first day of our friend Carole on the 29th, a couple of days ago:
When LeoLadyC728 left us on April 18th, I wanted to find a way to channel my sadness and help her friends who were very close to her and grieving. So I created the “Celebrating LeoLady” challenge. I used Carole’s first 21 posts on KindSpring, giving a lovely glimpse into a beautiful life.
