Hello to all. My name is Kerry and I created this blog to honor the life of my mother who passed away on June 2, 2014 after a long battle with depression and epilepsy. She was an amazing woman who was kind, patient, loving, and selfless. Depression masked and changed her identity until it was too painful for her to continue on. Coping with her loss has been incredibly painful.
As I try to trudge on after her loss, I keep trying to find some good in her absence. There is a definite calmness in the background that comes from knowing that she is no longer suffering. But, the deafening waves of emotion that crash into me at any moment are hard to quiet. I have never felt comfortable with expressing my emotions, especially feelings of grief. And so to keep myself afloat, I have decided to create a website to celebrate good deeds done in my Mom’s honor. Hopefully, it will be a place where friends and family can come to find a little bit of sunshine on a cloudy day, or to just share a good deed done in her honor. I plan to do 68 good deeds in her honor, one for each year of her life.
