A Blessing

Last Update: February 18, 2018

I surprisingly stumbled upon this program a little over two weeks ago. I was looking for a home based business but never ever even knew this type of business existed. I almost got myself involved in another company and quickly learned it was nothing but a scam. Thank goodness I did my research that evening and every website I read mentioned WA. I curiously checked it out. I was eager to see how it worked so I thought why not, I’ll give it a chance and if it’s not for me, it’s free the first 7 days so no sweat..

I lost my only child three months ago, he was only 21. He passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. To this day, we still don’t know why, the autopsy report is pending. Through this three month journey I’ve read five grieving books and spent hours reading anything I could find online to bring me something, anything to help me.. I, at one time, read that it helps to write in a journal and express your thoughts. I didn’t do it but I kept telling myself to do it. A notebook sat on my nightstand unopened.

I am a registered nurse but because of what I am going through I don’t think I am ready to go back. It’s too close to home.

The first couple days of this program I kept searching in my head for something that I could write about that also was marketable. I went from beach gear to pool gear to beach towels. But something in the back of my head told me to create a website for other parents in my situation to go to in hopes of finding some form of peace. I kept fighting the thought but my mind was not going to leave it alone. :)

So instead of a journal, I created a website. I cannot even begin to tell you how this process has helped me, comforted me (especially at night when it’s difficult to sleep), and brought hope in my heart. Truly a God send!

I have had several comments from visitors on the site and a couple ladies who want to begin a support group. This is amazing. There isn’t a dollar amount that can bring a broken heart back to life..

I absolutely love doing this! I’m so excited to learn. I honestly look forward to getting online, doing the lessons, chatting with the community.. this came to me at the right time. It’s a work in progress but my goal is to make other parents know they are not alone in this process.

Thank you all again!

I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. I think it's very admirable that you are creating a website to help others going through the same thing, I wish you every success and good luck! :) A lot of people are going to be very grateful to have a place to go for support during their grief and who better to understand than someone who has been/is going through it? I've also found that having a blog helps me process certain things that I had kept buried. I hope that it continues to help you as well! :)

Awww you’re so sweet to share that with me! I’m so thankful! I’m sooo happy to hear your granddaughter was ok! That was probably so scary.. yes it’s been difficult for me these days but fortunately I found “hope..” I take it day by day and sometimes hour by hour.. My son is truly with me and I feel him so alive.. more than ever.. he was wonderful! He guides my life now!

Hello Kristy, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss, some things are extremely hard to understand, my prayers and thoughts are with you.

On a brighter note, I am really pleased that Wealthy Affiliate is helping you move forward, it's always good that we can make something difficult into something good. You will probably the B be helping many people along the way and making their day brighter.

I had a customer who I worked for many years and sadly the husband died of a rare cancer around 12 years ago. His wife almost immediately set up a charity for this particular type of cancer, I am not sure how much she has raised to date, but I do know that it is in the millions and the charity has helped other cancer sufferers. I pray that good things come out of your difficult situation.

I am now following you, I look forward to reading your blog posts and networking with you. I wish you every success in what you're doing.

All the best to you.

Roy
