Thank you

March 2, 2009

This morning I found out that one of my posts, Auld Acquaintance, has been honored at glow in the woods. I wish I could put into words what this means to me. Glow has provided such comfort and support to me in the past months, and I’m grateful (grateful to the bottom of my shoes grateful) to every one who writes there, comments there, links to and from that site. Losing a child is such a terrifying and lonely thing, and to find others you can walk with is a great gift.

This blog is my great self indulgence, my way of chronicling, processing, and expressing the whirlwind of feelings, thoughts, and questions that have come with Teddy’s loss. If anything I write here brings comfort to anyone walking this rocky, lonely path, I’m extremely happy about that.

There were so many really fantastic winter posts nominated that I’m pretty overwhelmed. And happy.

Thank you.


  1. Congrats on this well-deserved honor 🙂

  2. Yay Erica! You deserved this so much. 🙂

  3. You really deserved this, Erica. I hope it lifted your heart a little.

  4. First blog I read after wakeup from sleep today!

    Are you tension? panic?

  5. Good on you Erica. So, so well deserved. Always love what you have to say, even though I wish I never met you. And I’m sure you feel the same.
