Next of Kin

I get this question a lot these days- how is your mother doing? Where is the "easy" button when you need one? The truth is, its never been an easy relationship between my mother and I, for either one of us. And with Dad gone, I am fully awakening to just how much he was a buffer for us. So we are both navigating the edges of this new landscape together, her and I. It's still not easy, but as much as I am finding my way, I can't lose sight of the fact that she is too.

So this is me trying.  I'm reaching, beyond the usual "Westra World" confines and blogging on my old resurrected blog.  Since my outlet is writing, I decided to share a bit of honesty about this journey.  For today, feel free to join me HERE.


  1. Vicky, it was nice to visit "you" at your other blog home. I also liked that great shot of you in the template. Awesome!

  2. Saw your name of Jen's blog -Westra what a Frisian name! Hubby is Frisian, that's how I know (we are both Dutch) -have been living on this side of the ocean for 20+ years. Have fun with your blog!:)


I welcome what you have to say. Thanks for taking the time to grace me with your thoughts and words!
