Writing group starts up again tonight
I was going to ditch it
feeling low and oh so sad
and I know you are all tired of hearing it.

 I want to say how incredibly thankful
for all of you who were kind and thoughtful enough to comment
on the loss of our little unborn granddaughter
She became still last Tuesday
at 34 weeks
your words comforted me, your act of love reaching out to me-
an unknown blogger friend..thanks

I have been rattling around the house all week,
so weighed down by my broken heart for her and her mother and father
But today my husband said, GO
to writing.....
Oh I don't think that is a good idea
I have no energy, no spark
nothing will come out of me that's not wrapped
in sorrow or loss
he said just now on the phone

...So...I;m making a quick pot of sloppy joes
and a salad
Mary Ann will be here at 6pm
my turn to drive


  1. sending love. it's all i can do.

  2. I totally understand how you feel sis. But you know what, even your little angel will not like it that you are keeping the sadness. Go to the writing and let your angel be your inspiration...


    You and your family will always be in my prayers...


  3. i hope it went well for you tonight...and good job putting yourself out there...hugs on...

    1. thanks are one compassionate man...
      may it all return to you

  4. I'm sorry for your heartache...

    1. thank you...
      ..and boy does it ache

  5. It is very difficult Suz, we are human beings filled with our frailties and strengths. My niece lost her 1st baby at just under one year old and that was 13 years ago. My sister, her Mom had her own suffering yet being the Mom, she was the pillar of strength needed at the time, just as you are now.

    Hope you enjoyed your writing!

    1. Boy I relate
      I suffer for my daughter who has been suffering for months...waiting this outcome
      It has been very difficult as a family
      but we gathered and held her and she was blessed and we love her through our mourning
      ....she mattered...
      Strength...ha...I wish I felt this way
      but you are right... family needs .....I am there
      and my husband is ther for are friends
      Which I count you as one... hug back

  6. Oh Suz....I am so sorry to hear of your loss. If I could hug you across the blogosphere....I would. God bless you and your family.

  7. thank you Carrie, I feel the hug..honestly..and today it is gray and gloomy and warmed my heart with your caring
    thank you
    and God has blessed us

  8. Suz, my heart sank to my stomach upon reading the news of your loss. I could try to comfort you with kind words and blah, blah, blah, but let's be honest: this sucks, and the only way to get through it is to grieve. Grieve like it is your job. And most importantly, lean on the people around you because they love you--WE, your blogosphere buddies love you!--so lean on us, as well. Let it out. Write it out. And know that we're praying for you and your beautiful family.

  9. Oh my ......thank you for visiting
    I think of you often.....everytime I pass Northwestern ...I wonder how the creative writing fella is doing?
    My daughter is of course in deep mourning for her baby
    but having walked this path before...I truly know that you must mourn or it stays with you way too long....stuck grief is an ugly thing.....luv to you .....
    she was beautiful....Isla Maeve

  10. Oh Sue, It was so good you were all there together. My heart and thoughts have been with you.

  11. Catching up with you and your wonderful writing, my heart leaped into my throat at this sad news. My thoughts are prayers are with your daughter and her family. Much love.

  12. I'm so sorry Suz...I had no idea. I have been caught up in my own stuff here at home and not reading many blogs lately but my heart aches for you and your family. I am so sorry. Words cannot express what I feel for you but I guess just sending them on to you might help just a bit. Love to you and healing thoughts.
