Clint and our sweet friend, Deidra, at a Red Cross Fundraiser
Hello, and welcome to Living Through It. I am Claudia Schlottman, and proud and honored to have been chosen by Pam and Sandy to be the Blogger of Note on their wonderful site Words of Wisdom for Friday, June 25. These good souls have created a safe place to showcase good writing, and I am happy to be here! So grab their button and start reading good stuff.
Let me tell you a little about me. I am 62 years old, a widow for one year, after being married to the Love of My Life almost 35 years, and I began this blog two months after my husband Clint’s death on June 8, 2009. After his death I was unable to write anything, though I have been writing for years. I live in the Heat Belt of Middle Georgia with my two dogs, Belle, a Boxer,
and Honey, a Lhasa Apso.
I’m an RN planning to go back to work in Hospice very soon. My mentor is Rosemary Daniell, in whose ongoing writer’s workshop for women, “Zona Rosa,” in Savannah, I have participated off and on since 1996. Oh, and I have participated in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer since its inception in 2004, and I have raised over $30.000.00!!
I chose to link you to this blog because I have finished it believe it has a beginning, a middle and an end. It tells the story of my painful journey in search of myself without Clint in my life.
Here are three links to posts I believe to be representative of my work. I hope you enjoy them and decide to follow me as I continue to learn and grow.
