Dear, My Dear

So, I have no children and am not sure I ever will. However, I've seen and have spoken with women who are incredible mothers. Of course, to me, no one outshines my mom. I hope that if I were to have kids that some of those mothers' actions and ability to love without bounds would transfer to me. This (letter) is for all the wonderful parents and guardians that help make not only their children's lives better but make the world a brighter, kinder place.

Grieving during the holidays

This will be my family’s fourth season since my father’s death and fifth since my uncle's passing. As my family and I enter the upcoming holiday season, I know we are not alone. Whether your grief is fresh or has seasoned, here are some ways we have gotten through the last few years. I hope these suggestions can help you as well.
