A candid and truthful TED talk presentation about the realities of grief and how it affects our lives. I have a huge appreciation of those few people who have the right phrases to describe what we feel as we mourn, the kind that, when we hear them, we say, “Yes, this.”

https://www.facebook.com/TED/videos/669879150139006?sfns=mo

"A grieving person is going to laugh again and smile again. Yes, they're going to move forward. But that doesn't mean that they've moved on."

A Letter to Motherless Daughters on Mother's Day - Hope Edelman

As Mother’s Day approaches, let us not forget those daughters among us who so deeply are missing their mamas on this day.

Always a classic, Hope Edelman pens some beautiful words for women who mourn the loss of their mother. Read it for yourself, share it with your grieving clients, and send it on to your loved ones.

We will be thinking of you on this bittersweet day ❤️.

May 11, 2019   Dear Motherless Daughter, Here we find ourselves again, on the brink of another second Sunday in May. It’s easier in some years than in others, isn’t it? For many years after my mother died, this Sunday was all about missing her on a day that seemed culturally sanctioned to remin...

As we all get older, please start thinking about having these conversations with your own family members.

We as healthcare professionals are really good at helping others be prepared, but have you written down your own wishes?

It doesn’t take long, and gives everyone peace of mind. ☀️

And remember: 1) no one likes to think about their death, so you are in good company, and 2) you may not like to go to work, get up early, or do your taxes, but we all know we have to do these things anyway.

Here’s to planning for peace of mind!

OK, you have finished your taxes, and now it is time to turn your attention to National Healthcare Decisions Day(NHDD), April 16th! Hopefully you have been well prepared and working on your organizations plan for NHDD long before today. But just in case you have not prepared, we want to share some of our collected resources on advance care planning. These are also great resources to share with your patients, families and friends!

As winter dumps over a foot of snow on us, we are thinking of all of the hospice and palliative care professionals making their way on treacherous roads and sidewalks to reach their patients and families. Please be safe out there, and know that your work doesn’t go unnoticed. You are appreciated beyond words!

Cooler weather always brings out the writer in me, and we have a few wonderful new products in store that will be released in the next few weeks. I am proud to announce that our greeting card line has a new and improved look, and along with these fresh and beautiful designs, we have also improved the pricing structure to make them even more affordable for hospice bereavement programs.

We also have a new Pocket Guide that details the important differences between hospice and palliative care, which will be very helpful to the hospice admissions team member, in helping families understand the differences.

So many people ask us, "which do you enjoy more? The publications side of the business, or the life coaching?"

How do we choose which we prefer when you have a day filled with clients who are finally seeing that they are worthy of love, or clients that have learned that they can speak their needs without feeling guilty, and then later have a phone conversation with a hospice nurse that describes the hospice education materials we write as "life changing?" When it's all this fulfilling, lucky for us - we don't have to choose.

The blog below is from our life coaching website, Blessings Enterprises. As I try to stay warm on this chilly day, I am reflecting upon the many blessings (and surprises) of 2016. May the new year bring you opportunities for growth, compassion, and love.

One of the destinations that we visit on our retreat days with clients is Christ in the Desert Monastery. This sweet church sits 13 miles back off of the main road, where the church is held in deep, beautiful red and pink rock canyons. The cottonwood trees are turning yellow by the Rio Chama, and the sky is intensely blue. There is a peace here that we forget that we can reach. Our retreatants leave renewed, with many new insights from the nature metaphors we introduce.

Congratulations Terri for such a wonderful accomplishment! Please share in our excitement by reading her blog "The Stories We Tell Ourselves."

The stories of a person, a family, a culture, a country hold and bind us in ways that are potentially fruitful or harmful. They also give us an identity. A meditation on who we are, how we become, and the stories we tell ourselves along the way.
