An Update

Hello, dear readers. I’m writing today to explain my brief absence, as well as offer an explanation for why you might not see so much of me for the next little while. There’s not really a way to put this delicately or to dance around it, so:

My mother passed away.

I’m devastated. This was unexpected and I still can’t quite believe it’s real. I can’t stop hurting. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do from here.

So please understand that I’m dealing with a tragedy. I’m going to try to act like everything’s okay for the most part here, so I’ll still try to keep a cheery tone in my posts. Just know that behind that tone I may be struggling. Thanks, everyone.
