A new awareness as i sit at the airport waiting for my flight to visit my daughter Julianna in New York: for years I asked the divine over and over how I could serve to the greatest degree possible, and this is what I’ve been given. Framing it in this way, that Elizabeth’s death can push me into greater service to others and to the divine, helps me and keeps me moving forward and inspired, feeling more grateful and hopeful. It’s helping me to shift back into a place of trust that all is unfolding as it is meant to.
I don’t know yet what this might look like in the future, but for now I’ll continue doing what I know to do each day, being with family, working with clients and writing as I can…

I wanted to let you know that I just recently discovered your blog. I’ve added it to the website I’ve been curating in memory of my 23 year old son who was killed 53 weeks ago.
The site is meant for bereaved parents and siblings and consists of blogs, websites, videos, articles and anything else that might be helpful or meaningful to those of us now living in this alien world without our children.
First, I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved son. The anniversary of his death was just a week ago – I can only imagine at this point what that first anniversary is like, but my heart goes out to you. I’m grateful you’re creating something to serve others through your grief. Thank you for sharing my blog on your site. I’ll be sure to check it out and spread the word to others who have lost their children or siblings.
I am sure your daughter will guide you also. I cannot imagine how you pick yourself up after everything you have experienced but you have done so, and are bringing real purpose to your life. I enjoy reading your posts.
Thank you. Yes, Elizabeth definitely is guiding me, in so many ways, sometimes invisible or subtle, and sometimes very clear and direct! And that makes such a difference. I am immensely grateful for my connection with her, and my faith that she is at peace and even joyful where she is…
