A lot has happened since my last blog post. Our family had another death (my father-in-law) a year after my mother's death (both at Christmas). My mother in law sold her acreage, and we sold our house, and we all bought a bigger house to live in together. Our boys are in high-school. But the biggest change came about just recently, although it had been a year-long process of research, planning and execution...My husband Brad and I started our own funeral business. As you all know from my profile, I am and have been a licenced mortician for the last 10 years, and although Brad is doing highway patrol full time, he still has his mortician licence as a side career.
There was a fork in the road last year, and I decided to take the bumpier path of committing myself full-time to my career as a mortician...NOT as a writer as I had always dreamed of doing. We have several valid reasons for our choice to open our own funeral home, some personal, but the deciding factor came down to the fact that both my mother and Brad's father always encouraged us to set our goals higher regarding our funeral professions because they had faith in us...in our compassion and our dedication to our client families.
There will always be opportunity for me to indulge in my love of writing. When my days are slow, and the Grimm Reaper is distracted for a while, I will write. I will write about things related to my profession, and my life as a wife and mother who is also a full-time business owner/funeral director.
