Honoring your life…

April 8, 2021

Michele Neff Hernandez is the Executive Director of Soaring Spirits International. <www.soaringspirits.org> She was widowed when she was 38 years old. Her husband Phil was riding his bike one morning and was hit by a Suburban. She attended some support groups where most of the people were older and had little in common with her; widowed with young children. She connected with another young widow, a distant relative who was also Michelle but with two L’s, and began talking and giving each other support. Realizing the power of connection Michele decided that she would have a conference for widows and widowers where they could connect and support each other through their losses. Soaring Spirits International and Camp Widow were born over 11 years ago and have served over a million people worldwide since that time.

Meeting Michele and being part of Camp Widow, an in-person and virtual event over three days, made a huge difference in my life. There is something magical about her. She understands loss like no one I have ever met and she embraces life in the most exquisite ways. The quote today is about people we have loved and lost.

Thank you Michele Neff Hernandez. I love you!

We don’t have to become heroes…

Susan Hannifin-McNab, author of A to Z Healing Toolbox, writes that “…words, quotes, and phrases, when read and said, can effect positive change in our conscious and subconscious mind. Reviewing quotes that inspire hope interrupts the negative thinking and negative feeling brain pathways that are associated with symptoms of grief and trauma.” http://www.a2zhealingtoolbox.com/about/

It has been 25 years since the day that my husband and two sons, Joel, Adam, and Seth died in a small plane crash. I know that I will always carry them with me in my heart and mind.

Sometimes we need…

I agree with Susan! I have quotes surrounding me on the walls in my office. They inspire me, give me hope, and make me think. Starting today I am going to post a quote a day on my blog until I run out of my favorite quotes! Maybe they will offer you inspiration, hope, and an opportunity to stop and think as they do for me.

Please enjoy my first quote below.
