A while ago I heard about a challenge that a blogger known as The Nester is doing for the month of October: Write 31 posts in 31 days on the same topic.
And tonight I sighed as I realized that tomorrow the calendar will change over to October and I have no idea how I am going to deal with the 2 year anniversary of my Mom’s death, which falls smack dab in the middle of the month on October 13.
Then it clicked and these two things connected. I can write about her every day for the entire month. In fact, I can write her a letter every day.
This is what I will do about my grief, this is how I will remember her this year.
This will take the form of hard questions, unearthed memories and whatever else I uncover while spending 31 days of digging into all the baggage I have surrounding her death.
Sometimes the best things go from inspiration to execution in a matter of minutes.
I am praying that this is one of them.
