It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Your tree is up and decorated. The stockings are hung over the fireplace, and your home is twinkling with Christmas magic. Holiday music fills the air, and everywhere you go people are spreading holiday cheer. This is ordinarily a joyous time meant…Continue

It is every parent's worst nightmare to lose a child. I remember being angry at myself for even letting the thought cross my mind. It was unimaginable. Luckily this didn't happen to people like us so I had nothing to worry about...until I did. By the time I let myself believe it was a possible outcome that night, it already was the outcome. He was too far gone. No longer did I…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue

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 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.…Continue

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…Continue

I can’t tell you how blessed I feel that I have been asked to write a guest post for The Village of Moms. You see I am one of the luckiest Mami’s in The Village, because of the “Gift” that I received from another Mom…a Mom I may…

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…Continue

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.…Continue
