In the five years I’ve been blogging, I cannot – nor do I want to – recount the number of pregnancies that began and ended too soon. Always, too soon.

I’ve been an invisible witness to separations and divorces, reading only what can be written by a broken heart.

Today the news of one of my long-time fellow blogger’s husband’s death reached me and my heart thudded in my chest in a painful ache because there’s nothing I can do. I cannot stop by her home with something to put in her freezer. I cannot be there to be a witness to what his life was. I cannot be there to wrap my arms around her and tell her I’m sorry. I cannot be there to cry with her.

I can only be here. And that cannot be enough.

  1. It is something that has been weighing on my soul ever since I first heard. I can’t believe she is going through this. I live so close to her, being minutes from Boulder, and cannot do anything to help. I wish I could reach out and help her, somehow. It’s the unthinkable that could happen to a friend, to anyone.

  2. I heard about this but I don’t know the blogger. I’m so sorry for what she’s going through.

    One thing you could do is set up an account for your friend at and encourage people to donate. Organic Dish will then deliver healthy meals to her. We did this for a Boulder family going through cancer treatments a few years ago.

    Hugs to you, too.

  3. I saw someone post about this on FB but didn’t know who it was referring to until now. Although I was just a lurker on her blog and have had no connection to her since she stopped posting, I feel so, so incredibly sad to hear this news.
