'The Green Dress' Impact

Posted on August 14, 2015 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

In the two months since I got married and my new book, The Green Dress, was released (on the day of our wedding as gift to our guests), I have had time to reflect on how much the book has changed me.

It has been one of many steps that I now see are about how I have never strayed from who I am supposed to…

I will be the first to admit that I love the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I’m a multitasker, I like to entertain, and my birthday is in December. Last week I was in England at…


When Grief and Engagement Intersect

Posted on September 26, 2014 at 12:00pm 1 Comment

In March, just weeks before my mom died, Greg and I began to discuss a future together. I felt as if we were dancing around the topic a bit, probably because I had been married before and a part of me wanted to make sure it would truly be right, but also knowing that life changes and sometimes you have to go forward into the…


Reconciling With a Loved One After Loss

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 12:00pm 0 Comments

My friend Janet once told me that parents raise their children to be independent and, therefore, they won’t get along all the time. I always thought of this in the years that my mom and I lived under one roof following my divorce in 2011.

I had a house in my hometown in Illinois and we had moved her there the…

I wonder if you might be able to help me.  I just got home from talking to a young man after our Survivors of Suicide group meeting, and he is struggling from the loss of his brother, his only sibling.  Do you know of any resources espcially for a sibling survivor who has lost his one and only sib?

I first want to wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year. I have lost my younger brother a nephew and a son to suicide and all are the hardest things to deal with. I have also lost a son to accidental drowning he was 5 and was in a coma for 3 years. When my son who took his own life lay in the hospital I prayed that God would let him live brain dead and all just like my first child just so he could still be here with me, it was not meant to be and he died 2 days later. I feel like a shell just going through the motions. I don't know what to do anymore.

Michelle I read your blog about your move. When people die it changes your life. and I can see you want to live life. I suppose sibling death is different than child death by far. I can't say i will ever throw anything of his away wish i had more from him. wish i could go back and relive those years. Life will never be the same for me. It is a very sad journey. I am not very far along and it will be two years spring. nor will i ever be. too much regret. I will channel it somehow and spring ahead some how. for my other kids ...
