No Regrets

August 23, 2013

When my mom died, as traumatic an event as it was experiencing her sudden death, I had no regrets. 

I must admit that I feel pretty happy, and fortunate, that I can say that.

Mom and I spoke almost every day, or, at a minimum, at least twice a week.  Sundays was always a good time for us to catch up on each others comings and goings.  We were very connected, except when I was a teenager of course!

Organ Donor

August 9, 2013

Have you ever thought about donating your body, eyes, or tissue when you die?  Or other parts of you?

Most likely, you are probably feeling a bit squeemish about this topic.  I get it.  But it is a topic that deserves our attention and something that is so very important to consider and then act on.

So many factors are involved in considering whether or not you want to donate your body.

Blended Families and Blurred Lines

August 2, 2013

Millions of the "Boomer" generation are most likely to have step-children; many more so than in any other generation.  

When your adult widowed or divorced parent remarries, it is (hopefully) a delightful celebration. 

Most "children" are happy that Mom or Dad are no longer alone.  They are happy that their parent has someone to share the rest of their life with.
