Christmas Brings Out The Kid in Many of Us

Christmas Brings Out The Kid In Many of Usby mary jane hurley brant What is it about this time of year that goes straight to the heart?  Is it the special foods like warm gingerbread or moist Jewish Apple Cake we love smelling and eating?  You know, the kind with real whipped cream dripping and falling all over itself and down the sides of the cakes.  Or is it songs like “I’ll be home for Christmas” or “The Candles of Hanukah” that make us sigh and cry because of all those goodbyes?   Well,…See More

Happy Mother's Day to Every "Good-Enough Mother"

For many of us, Mother's Day stirs something deeply loving.  For others, ambivalent feelings abide.  You see, after thirty-three years in the counseling field and drying the tears off many faces, I can accurately say that not every woman feels she had, was or is the "good-enough mother." So, exactly what is the "good-enough mother"?  English pediatrician, Donald Winnicott, M.D. – an influential object-relations psychoanalyst - believed this type of mother was a different kind of mom because she…See More

I'm a mom of 2 and grandmom of 3. Married 47 years. I'm a practicing psychotherapist, grief and MS specialist. I like to encourage moms raising their kids and holding onto themselves at the same time! It's a hard job but the best job in the world, a sacred vocation. When we do it well we will never have regrets.

I an artist and writer. My book, When Every Day Matters was published by Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance Press, Available on Amazon.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I blog when I can find the time. I'm thoughtful when I open a blog or when I respond to another's blog because our words are our thumb prints.

I also find blogging fun, introspective and a way to connect, especially with women because we love to connect. It's our nature as is being good at relationships.
I have been blogging since...
2008

While my topic won't be pertinent to most moms - and for that I am so grateful - it will be to some who are hurting or they know a mom who is.  Please help them out by mentioning their child.  It's wonderful hearing the name of our children whether they are here on earth or in heaven; our relationship with them never ever…

Mother's Finding Meaning Again Mission Statement

Posted on October 18, 2012 at 5:19pm 0 Comments

We are a support group for any woman who has lost a child.  Our purpose is to comfort bereaved mothers.  We offer compassion, conversation, validation, support, spiritual solace and friendship to one another.  At our meetings - and our other gatherings together - no mother ever has to explain why she is suffering or justify why she can't "get over it."  We all know that no mother ever "gets over it" because the sorrow keeps our communion open with our beloved deceased children. But, in the…

Loyalty Vs. Blind Loyalty In Families

Posted on June 11, 2011 at 7:42am 0 Comments

Hi Moms, I want to talk about loyalty vs. blind loyalty in families.



Loyalty is essential for genuine family solidarity.  But blind loyalty leads to family dysfunction.



A loyal family member is faithful to the family's traditions and honors its obligations. A loyal family member is emotionally present with support and encouragement during success or duress.   These unwavering devotions are admirable and observable: just look at how a loyal family member helps another member…

Hey Mate, I'm writing in regards to that message I sent through yesterday, we have been nominated as being one of the Top Aussie Blogs on the famous Circle Of Moms website and at the moment are coming #1 but we'll still need our friends and followers help as our challanger has a wider support network than we do and is catching up fast! If you could vote for our blog every day or just once it would make a big difference. 

If you do decide you'd like to help out daily, I can pop you on our notification list and have spesh little reminders send to you, just let me know! 

Thanks for being our friend on here and have a fabulous weekend!!

Melissa x

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
