Super exciting, Right?
I am super excited!
My collection of poetry has been a long time coming. I titled my collection ‘Lost Poems of a Functioning Mother‘ because some of these poems I thought were lost, I rediscovered them when I decided to start writing again, something I have always loved but I lost as life went on. I choose ‘Functioning Mother’ because that is exactly how I felt when we lost our daughter, who was stillborn. I had two living children at the time and raising them while grieving (and working) was a struggle. Five years later, more writing, and I had the opportunity to turn my journey into a poetry collection. Hopefully, a collection that will help other mothers know that they are not alone, they are valid, and that those feelings are not ‘crazy’ or exaggerated’.
It is amazing to see all this hard work to be done and now I can rest and share my collection with the world around me.
and get writing again. You can see what I was up to during the past crazy two months here: Where Have I Been?
