Meet My Readers Monday

Monday, February 27, 2012


Name: Liz Johnson

Location: South Bend, Indiana (we've been here 4 years)

How I came upon your blog/why I read: I know Vic's cousin from college, and had hopped on your blog before, but started reading regularly right when Lucy choked (I heard about her choking the day after it happened).  I have a son who was a few months younger than Lucy and the story pierced my core... I couldn't imagine the pain and just wanted desperately to do or say something to make the burden easier. 

A couple of years later, I lost a baby girl early in my 2nd trimester and I found (and continue to find) great solace in your open and raw posts about grief. 

Interesting tidbits about myself: I have 3 little boys, plus the daughter I lost in pregnancy.  I lived in Mexico City from ages 12-18.  I have been skydiving.  I speak Romanian at a very basic level.  I can put both of my legs behind my head and walk on my hands (I am a woman of many talents, eh?).

Thoughts: I someday hope to study to be a midwife.

Feelings: I believe strongly in peace, charity, and love.  I wish everybody gave more hugs.

LIZ'S BLOG--she's a thinker and a writer...Great read. 


  1. Liz-
    Just wanted to say that I am so sorry for your loss. I have had 3 losses (all in the early first trimester)- so I can understand a little bit of your heartache. It's a club nobody should have to be a part of. Thanks for sharing.


  2. Very nice to meet you... South Bend, IN... with my daughter in Fort Wayne (just got back from there) I may end up flying into South Bend one of these trips... If Allegiant has a great deal for airline tickets. Liz you do have quite the list of talents... did you ever live in Canada eh?


  3. @Erin - Thanks, and I'm so sorry for your losses. :(

    @Sheila - I never lived in Canada, but I've visited! :)

    Woohoo! I'm so excited to be featured on Molly's awesome blog. :)
