BOULDER

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 http://www.theorganicdish.com/ 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.
