Good morning and happy day!

The death of a spouse is never easy, and today’s featured blogger used her personal tragedy as an impetus to start her blog, and it’s blossomed ever since. Welcome Diane from Be Still A Minute.

Here’s how Diane describes the genesis of her blog and how it’s grown:

I began blogging in March of 2010, completely on a whim. I thought it would be a great way to share my experience with overcoming grief after losing my first husband and father of my two boys in an accident at the end of 2003 but it quickly became about so much more than that…

I blog about my often frustrating and sometimes hilarious adventures in parenting boys, my faith, my big hair days of the 80s, my thoughts on aging (I turned the big 40 this year!), my slight obsession with Dachshunds/wiener dogs and whatever other amusements, mishaps, and curveballs life so happens to send my way!
