It has been a full year since the idea of the Boitson’s blog came about. It started for 2 days on blogspot, and then, as things became more serious in each passing hour, we quickly switched formats to this location: http://www.theboitsons.info .
The idea wasn’t my original. After having read cfhusband.blogspot.com for several months, and their journey, I thought this would be a great tool to let all of our friends and family all over North America connect with us while we began this cancer journey. At the time, I merely used it to let everyone know what was happening so I wouldn’t have to field hundreds of phone calls a week besides the hundreds we were already getting from medical staff.
In a way, I began it for selfish reasons: so I wouldn’t have to answer so many darn questions! But then it grew into something more. Awareness, a voice of Angiosarcoma, faith, struggle, sounding board, diary, and eventually a grief journal. It became so much more than it began, and I believe the Lord has blessed this to be so.
On the day of Kevin’s passing there were over 2500 hits. My counter has not been working since that day, but I imagine the numbers have dwindled to the faithful few who follow my grief journey.
A year later, so much has changed. Kevin has passed, I’m moving forward, but I’m still working towards Widow and Angiosarcoma activism. This remains my goal for this blog, to continue to bring hope and faith to other struggling through both of these tumultuous life events.
Please share with me today, via comments, what you like about the blog, what you’d like to see in the future of the blog, and what has kept you reading our journey.
