I had started a blog earlier today and then my computer suddenly died on me forcing me to reboot it…. I finally am getting back to finish it only to find it gone with the exception of the title. I think it was the universe telling me to suck it up, put my big girl panties on and stop feeling sorry for myself. Before I came on to finish I read several posts from women I love and adore and am in awe of. My original words seemed so silly and trivial in light of their journeys they are on. And they are walking this journey with strength, faith and laughter mixed in with their tears.

I am not going to recreate my blog… I am leaving the title because it reminds me that I need to stop, look around and thank my lucky stars my life is as good as it is. Yes I am alone for the first time in 50 years I am alone but I am surrounded by amazing, strong, wonderful people so I am one blessed lady…



  1. You are NOT alone. ..never believe that! It is a lie and we, you and I, have to hold only onto what we know is true! We are lonely. Sometimes so lonely that it seems death would be the only relief. But the truth is. ..we may be lonely but we are never alone. How many times have you been with someone and still, somehow feel alone? Just longing for someone to just love you and genuinely care about what you care about. God has given us family and friends who do care…really care. People who hurt with us. Who celebrate with us. And who are willing to sit with us and say nothing, because that is what we need! Hold onto what you know is true. ..refuse to hear the lies. I care about you. I love you! I am sitting somewhere miles and miles away thinking about you. ..you are not alone!


      1. I hear you Jan!! I am good being alone but always had a kid or do with me, with Luna gone it is the first time in my life I am all alone. But I would not change that, I so jot share my space well with others lol


  2. Being alone is not the same as being lonely. It took me years to get to the point where I felt just fine being alone on my own. Just when I was happy with it I met Glenn. I can tell you right now that there are times when I wish I was alone again (lots of times) and if anything happens to ‘us’, I will quite happily remain alone….all alone and loving it!


  3. It took me awhile after being in 20 year relationship. ..but I enjoy my new life and the real fact THAT I CAN DO ANYTHING I WANT AND NO ONE CAN TELL ME NO! except for the police but that’s a whole other story. I mean I would kill for your view and to taste that pozole…xo
