Find comfort for the childless here

Dear friends,
It's the second anniversary of my husband's death. Although I promised myself to stay zen about it, the memories and grief are weighing me down today. So I'm going to share a few things off the web that give me comfort.

TheNotMom.com tells us about a new report by a Harvard researcher that shows there are more households in the United States without children than with. So if you don't have kids, you are not out of the ordinary. The report itself is a little harder to understand, but you can read it here.

There's a new book out by comedian Jen Kirkman called I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids." It sounds like fun. They're talking about it on The View today. 

Finally, I have probably mentioned it before, but the Gateway-women gallery of childless role models at Pinterest can keep you reading all day about marvelous, beautiful women who never had children. By the way, I'm in there, and I'm thinking: what should I do with my hair? :-)

Have a wonderful day.

Its been a few days since your post. Hope you are feeling better today. Thank you for being such a blessing to your husband when he really needed you.

Please find someone to hug today. Here's a big cyber embrace from me until then. God bless you.

Dorothy, thank you. I am feeling much better. Last night I stayed up late writing about my husband, and it helped a lot. I slept beautifully and feel ready for the world today.
