Thank you. Thank you each and every one of you who commented, called, or emailed after I posted about the death of my dear old pal. I felt so much better knowing that others had gone through this and I wasn’t really evil despite my eldest child’s claims. We are reminded of her often when we see a little shadow or hear a mysterious creek but, despite missing her, we are starting to move on .
What was so wonderful about all of these messages was that they really reinforced in me the power of community. This week I was reminded of all of the lessons I learned from Madeleine’s death which resulted in the creation of this wonderful online community for moms. The connection we as mothers share and the support that only another mom can offer. I am truly lucky. Thank you.
