A Nominated MAD

I'm really excited and honoured that somebody appears to have nominated me in The MAD blog awards 2013! For "Best Family Life" category! I'm honoured that people do actually read my blog, and whats more think it worthy enough for an award! Whoever you were, thank you! 

I realise our family life doesn't always make for happy or easy reading, that we're a bit mixed up between grief and joy; raising angels and rainbows.  But what I hope my blog is achieving, after almost two and half years of writing, is raising awareness that not everyone's family is quite how you think it might be, that bereaved parents exist, even today. 

I hope it helps to break down barriers and break taboos, empower people to approach bereaved parents they know or may come across.  I hope, amongst my low posts, that love and hope shine through in the midst of grief.  I hope my blog gives hope for happier times ahead for those not so far along the journey, that it doesn't get 'better' but it does get different. Somewhere along the line you learn to process life again. 

I'm still processing. I'm still reactive and raw to so many things. But I'm living, figuring it out as I go. Family life for us means a balancing act between death and life, learning to be brave again, believe in life again. Diary of an Angel Mother, Rainbow Mother. Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love. 

I'm going to join in the nominating now! You should too... Which blogs do you enjoy reading?
