It’s Not Goodbye…

What a year it’s been. And what strikes me the most is the resilience and strength of the human spirit to see us through the greatest collective trauma of our time. Not for 100 years has there been a global pandemic, and let’s hope it’s the last. I am beyond proud of our healthcare workers…

This is the most incredible teaching I have ever experienced on the topic of trust by one of my very favourite mentors, Brené Brown. Please, please carve out the 13 minutes to watch. The illustrations mixed with Brené’s words and soothing voice work beautifully together. What I’ve learned will help me to understand my own…

Lessons From My Mother (List of Faves)!

Here in North America, we celebrated Mother’s Day on Sunday. I called my mom, and we talked about Mother’s Days gone by and how we’d all get dressed up for church and how our Dad would make reservations at fancy brunch places and how the whole day would be focused around her. My father adored…

This past weekend many of us celebrated Father’s Day. For over 20 years, my family has enjoyed a game of golf and a reunion at my aunt’s cottage, just outside my Dad’s hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. We settled on Father’s Day weekend a few years in, and the date has stuck. I am so glad…

Mother’s Day…And Expectations. And Death. And love.

Last year, I wrote a post about Mother’s Day that I would like to share again, not because I don’t feel like writing but because it meant a lot to me then and after re-reading it, it means a lot to me now, too. It may mean something to you, as well…about making time, and death,…
