This is my second blog, which seems fitting for this second phase of my life.  You can find my first blog at www.txmomx6.blogspot.com.  I started it in September of 2007, 3 months before my husband died suddenly, changing my life and the lives of my children.  I continued to blog through my grief, and theirs, for the next 5+ years.  And then I was done.
But I’m not really done.  I want to continue writing, but I wanted a change.  So this is it.

Welcome to my new Plan A.  🙂

And a huge thank you to Michele Neff Hernandez for inspiring me with the title for this blog.

    Hi Janine — I stumbled across your first blog years ago and enjoyed it tremendously because you talk about life the way it is, the good and bad. Also, I was praying for you and your family. When you stopped writing it, I didn’t feel I could email you about continuing to hear how you’re doing because my hard stuff was a bad background, not widowhood. So, since then, I had occasionally wondered how you were and hoping you were capturing more joy each day.

    Then, on August 7, 2016, my husband Jim dropped dead of a heart attack and I have been plunged into the world you have been experiencing and it is every bit as awful as you expressed. Thanks to you and blessed friends around me, I do not expect to ‘get over’ this, I’m just hoping the pain is less acute and that I do my best for my 15 year old daughter and 26 year old stepson.

    Thanks for giving a guide to those of us behind in the journey. Diane

      Oh, Diane. There are no words.
      Except that I am so very sorry.
      I’m glad you found me here and I hope my words continue to help you in some way.
      Thank you for reading and for your prayers. You have mine. ❤️
