The flower photo above is one that Morgan took in her last year of life…I will always honor Morgan by cherishing life as she did. Morgan loved life. Morgan saw beauty in the world at every turn.
Today, as we celebrate the first day of summer, I am reminded that on this longest day of the year, I have so much to be grateful for. I am grateful that Morgan, in her short 20 years, opened my eyes to so many things. She was wise beyond her years and I feel like she taught me more than I ever taught her. I miss her every moment of every day, but still feel her love and wisdom with me in every breath I take…for that I am grateful.

SPARC has announced it is giving a webinar on “Enhancing Stalking Victim Safety During Covid-19”
May 21, 2020 – 11:00am PT, 12:00pm MT, 1:00pm CT, 2:00pm ET
While the Covid-19 pandemic can limit survivor options and exacerbate victims’ isolation, stalkers may exploit health concerns and social distancing to continue or even escalate their stalking behaviors. This webinar will highlight Covid-19’s potential impacts on stalking victims and provide strategies for service providers to enhance support and safety.

For all mothers who have lost a child, I know your pain and heartache never ceases, but my hope for all of us is that the love we have for our child is greater than the pain of our loss.
Normal was destroyed the moment we knew our child was gone, and that normal will never return, but the courage we show, every day, just taking a breath and trying our hardest to carry on, is what I call real courage.
Please be gentle with yourself on this day…may your smile still come through when remembering your precious child, even though the tears will also come.
May you always see your child’s smile in your mind’s eye and feel the warmth of their love, because death can never take that away from us…death can never sever the cord between a mother and her child – remember that always.
During these difficult times, always remember to keep HOPE alive.
“Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so powerful as hope. With hope, one can think, one can work, one can dream. If you have hope you have everything.”
Never give up on HOPE!
