We Hope For Widows writers have been asked to tell you a bit about ourselves and since I post two times a week, I will share a bit today and the rest on Thursday.

I became widowed in October 2012. My life is great and I am happy, but am finding the ol’ stunt plane called grief still has some occasional breathtaking descents, like the last few days. After a good, long cry and some prayer, I am much better. I will tell you more about myself on Thursday. In the meantime, here is how I describe myself on Pinterest: Mom. Tall. Former Elected Official. Nerd. Musician. Widow. Mormon. College Graduate. Daughter. Nap Taker. Sister. Nearsighted. Advocate. Cyclist. Aunt. Friend. Me.

See you Thursday!
