Mourning is Hard Work

My mom said to me the other day, “Mourning is hard work.” My mom was sharing a truth in that moment, for sure.

Mourning the loss of my friend Lorrie Fenn is HARD work. The pain is deep, just as deep as my love for her is.

Today I am getting back to work, or at least trying to. That too is hard.

My friend Lorrie was involved in many aspects of my business. She was my accountability partner. She was my business coach, my brainstorming partner, my graphic designer. We were working on multiple projects together. She was my #1 cheer leader.

I am numb. I am afraid. I am trying to make myself get up and move. It is hard.

I have a show this Saturday with Crafty Chic’s Traveling Trunk Show, a brain child of Lorrie’s as well as a photo shoot on Sunday for a media kit Lorrie was working on for me.

I am going to focus on what absolutely must be done to make those two events a success. They will be a success.

Going with the bumpy flow for now.

Thank you for all of your kind words. They really mean a lot to me.

I will leave you with one of my favorite Lorrie prints. It means even more to me know. -Carly
