I am a widowed mommy raising a wonderful little girl. I was 29 when I lost my husband, our daughter was one. I live in Connecticut, where I met, married, and lost the man that I am still proud to call my husband. Every day I struggle. Every day I learn. Every day I am grateful for the time I had with him, and for the little girl he gave me before he left. I have found comfort and healing in writing. I am a young widow learning to inspire myself and my daughter to rise up and conquer this life. You can find my blog at mommyisawidow.com.
