Why the heck did I name my blog “A thief called grief?” Yes, it rhymes. Yes, you have to remember that golden rule of “i before e except after c” when you are typing in the name to the search bar. But although “thief” conjures up a negative thought, the idea behind the name is simply this–once you have grieved, whether it’s a loss due to death, loss due to divorce, loss due to whatever crap life throws at you, the old you is gone. At least for me it is and was. The old you was stolen, and now you’re on a new journey. This site is not just for someone who is grieving due to death. This site is for anyone trying to find their way after the theft of their “old life”. Welcome! I hope you learn something while you’re here.
