Her 1,731-word post Wednesday marked the end of sheloshim, the traditional Jewish 30-day period of mourning for a spouse.

'I have lived thirty years in these thirty days,' Sandberg wrote. 'I am thirty years sadder. I feel like I am thirty years wiser.'

Sandberg also said Goldberg's death helped her gain a 'more profound understanding of what it is to be a mother,' and that she rejoiced that her children were alive each day.

She ended the post with lyrics from Bono, who sang at Goldberg's Silicon Valley memorial service last month.

''There is no end to grief ... and there is no end to love,'' she posted. 'I love you, Dave.'
