How To Talk To Children About Death

Caroline’s last hours in the hospice were peaceful for her but they were painful for us .   When the phone call finally came that she had died, despite the inevitability, the emotion was overwhelming.  

Caroline had battled breast cancer for seven years before dying at the age of 39.  In the days that followed I thought a lot about her parents, and husband, but I thought also about the children in our families as well as the children at the school  where she’d been a…

Surviving a Miscarriage

Finding out that you are expecting is the most exciting news that a mother to be will ever get, aside from getting married.  After getting a positive pregnancy test, most women call the doctors office immediately to get prenatal care so that they can determine how far along that they are.  Once you have a…

YouTube Losing A Child

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=K7iZaEP4t3I

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

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…

Crocheting & Crying

 
I've been crocheting for 23 years now and frequently receive requests for blankets, scarves, shawls, or hats. My husband has patiently put up with my yarn addition for almost 10 years and I love to see my kids taking an interest.


Henry will enthusiastically push a crochet hook through one of my blankets, proud that he is "helping" Mama. Or he'll spend a minute…

The Story of My Perspective

Nine year’s ago, I celebrated my first Mother’s Day as a true mother.  I will never forget that day and the feelings that went with it. A day to recognize the hard work, loyalty and devotion of women everywhere who make the most difficult job in the world look easy.  I was honored to become a member of the tribe.

It’s also a day for me to…

Rubber Tires and Tennis Shoes

Today is the 13th anniversary of my first husband’s death.  He was killed in the crash of Swissair 111 off the coast of Nova Scotia.

This time of year is always difficult for me; some times are harder than others.  I call this time around his death my blue cloud period.  Some years I am so deep in…

Thanksgiving Day Can Be Painful

When you lose someone you love, Thanksgiving Day feels burdensome and painful. When a brain tumor took away our precious Katie's life I dreaded that holiday. For seven years we served no rutabagas because they were Katie's favorite vegetable. The thought of their seasonal aroma wafting through our home without her in it was too much to bear.



I don't share this part of me today to make other moms sad. I share it because you are my extended family and I am yours. We are all fellow… Continue

Mourning Lynette


In 2005, one of the most beautiful, inspiring women I have ever met was taken by cancer. Lynette was born in 1973. If you do the math, she died much too young. She was a young wife, a new mother....

The Pain of Losing a Family

The day Tom died, I lost more than a husband. I lost a family. From the moment I turned on CNN, the family I loved, enjoyed and belonged to began to fracture, as if the second the plane crashed it became more than tortured steel and shredded rubber.…

I May Have Changed a Life Today

The lyrics of Elton John’s song, Someone Saved My Life Tonight, keep running through my mind in an endless loop. I keep thinking of a little year girl living somewhere in the U.S. with her adopted family, having traveled more than half way around the world from…

Losing My Love…One Year Later Continued

Well I made it through the day all in one piece. It’s been one full year since my mother past away but I’m still standing, holding down the fort. As I mentioned in my last post I didn’t know what to expect of my emotions when her one year anniversary came. But in the end the day was wonderful because I tried to focus on all the wonderful things about her and remember all the good times we had.

As I stated in my last post I wanted to revisit the trail I was running when I found…

A Perfect Last Sunday

A few weeks ago I saw a flier for our county fair. I have always loved the county fair...roasted corn on the cob, cotton candy, funnel cake, livestock barns, and ferris wheels. They make me happy...but also sad.…

Are You A Hero?

Some say we don't have anymore heroes but I say we do. Let's take a look at what a hero is and decide if you are one.



A hero travels the hero's journey. That's when regular people such as you or me are asked to leave our routine life because something serious has occurred and we are asked to do something about it. We are "called to help." We are called to save our king, our country, our friend, or ourself. And because the task is arduous, we really don't want to accept it.… Continue

Synchronicity is More than a Coincidence

Have you ever had an experience where you said, "Wow, what a coincidence." Maybe it was more. Maybe it was a synchronicity. Let me explain through a Jungian perspective.



Carl Jung, the prominent Swiss psychiatrist, believed synchronicity meant 'more than a coincidence.' Jung, the thinker and founder of analytical psychology, connected synchronicities to the bigger world: the collective unconscious. These were not just assumptions on his part, Jung believed the collective unconscious… Continue
