I Made a Couple Decisions
Second, I am getting more serious about the idea of writing a book. I want people, in particular Husbands and Dad's, to know that they will make it through the unfortunate experience of losing a wife and Mother to their children. I have been getting more and more emails from people all over saying that they stumbled upon my blog and that it is helping them cope and handle certain situations.
It is very gratifying to me to receive emails from folks saying that the blog is actually helping them get through their own grief. Some people cannot express things, some won't, some don't know how...if by reading my rants and thoughts it gives them a little validity that it is okay to feel a certain way then that is good in my opinion. I started putting together an outline for chapters / discussion points and I am attempting to fill in some content.
I appreciate the emails and the phone calls I sincerely do. Getting so much positive reinforcement is absolutely awesome and inspiring. I do not know what I would do without the support of my family and friends. Which in a way also adds more fuel to the fire for me wanting to write a book about this entire experience. I realize that other folk's situations will be different then mine, but for some reason in which I can't explain at the moment, I want to help other folks make it through just like I have been helped by so many of my friends and family.
Inside Bill's Head -- Previously Known as (Inside the Head of a Grieving Single Dad)
In August of 2009 my wife Jennifer passed away from an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Brain Tumor. She was only 38 years old. She left me and our two little girls Abbie and Allie to continue life’s journey.
I promised her that I would NOT become angry and bitter about what happened...in order to do that I am attempting to write to express my thoughts and feelings.
This site is a place where I can express my thoughts, feelings and rants...
