Be more than a lurker! :
- Your participation is important!
- Please leave comments; words of encouragement, questions, your experiences … I don’t have to know you, anyone can leave a comment. If your comment is more personal, you don’t have to use your name.
- In order to keep this blog alive, please participate. 🙂 I will feel more encouraged to continue posting!
- Please share my blog with others and on social media! We don’t always know the history of the people around us, some of your contacts may have experienced a great loss too. I hope this blog can provide comfort and support to others as well.
- The greatest gift you can give to a grieving family is your help. Did you know that leaving comments can be tremendously helpful to a bereaved person?
- I will keep all your words of encouragement about Adélie and Maxandre. One day, I want them to be able to look back and see all of the support they had, and how resilient they’ve been and continue to be every day. I will not hesitate to read them the beautiful words of encouragement that people have sent.

Why is My Blog Bilingual?
- I’m originally from a very French-speaking town (Hearst, Ontario) where almost everyone speaks French. It is important for me to continue to express myself in my first language.
- Speaking two languages is excellent for the brain!
- Readers are able to read and comment in the language of their choice. I don’t like to prioritize a language over the other.
- French is often forgotten in blogs (even if the blogger is French-speaking).
- During difficult times (e.g. grieving), it is important to feel as comfortable as possible. In fact, when we are in mourning, our brains are exhausted and have virtually no energy to read, let alone start translating in our heads.
- With the translation tools, we have today, it takes considerably less time to translate.
- Translating my posts allows me to review my original text.
