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.

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.

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

Autumn Calls Us To Change

Hi dear Moms,



In my younger days I thought I could control change. I learned, and not quickly I would add, that no one can control or stop change anymore than one can hold back the tides or halt the autumn leaves transforming from green to gold. This brings me to today's topic of change and how to understand it and accept its daily invitation.



First, change is inevitable. Think of those individuals you know who, despite painful adversity, have been able to go on even after… Continue
