Hello my dear friend, I am only just returning to blogging, albeit it slowly, since I lost my dad in July. It was a shock and took me a while to recover. Reading this wonderful article has inspired me. I was unable to write for a long time because my brain was far from relaxed and happy. I now know it is an actual physical ‘thing’. I have returned to my memoir once again and will keep focusing on my strengths and keep pressing on, one step at a time. Your excellent article has inspired and helped me so much, I wish I could give you a great big hug to thank you! I have missed you…with love from your friend Sherri 🙂 <3 xxx

    Hi Sherri!

    I know how much you loved your dad and how hard your loss is. With all the pain that will stay with you from now on, I am glad that you returned to blogging and decided to focus on your strengths. Lots of people have missed you dearly, me being one of them. I’m glad my post inspired you. Digital hug from me too, Ilka xxx
