Mother's Song

Sarah Rose Catherine Broeder passed away one month ago today. It is still to unbelievable to us. This is a poem I post today in memory of her. Thanks to the Hirshouers for sharing it with us.

 

 

Mother's Song

 

I've lost my baby daughter,

Though not misplaced.

I feel she's somewhere

Bound by neither time nor space.

Perhaps she sits before the Throne

With radiant…

Somewhere in Time: August 2001 - Uneasy Feelings, the Olympia, and Jaws

In August 2001, my vacation time finally came around.  We were planning a trip to Knoebels Amusement Park in the Poconos and trip to an underground cavern near Pittsburgh and possibly a trip to the Statue of Liberty.  I can’t explain why I felt uneasy about the trip within…

The power of sharing

 Today I was able to tell my storie to someone new and it felt really powerfull. Both My dad and brothers deaths were big news stories in the town that I am from because of the ways that they died. So almost everyone already knew before I had an opportunity to talk about it. In a way it was beneficial because I had a lot of people who were really supportive of what I went through. But at the same time that ment that there were very few people that I was able to tell. This summer I am staying…

Somewhere in Time: July 28, 2010 Comic Books, Grand Central Station, and Strawberry Fields

Tim and I left the Empire State Building and began to walk around Mid-Town Manhattan.  Near by was a comic book store and we were attracted to the display of comic book hero porcelain bisque busts, toys, t-shirts and stand-up cut out displays of Spider-Man, Boba Fett, Han Solo and…

Somewhere in Time: July 28, 2010, Empire State Building

A few days after Tim’s birthday, in July 2010, I took him to the Empire State Building.  I told how it was something I hadn’t done and I knew he would enjoy.  We started out late in the morning of July 28th.  I wanted to be up earlier, but both of us overslept.  We headed up I-95 to the New…

Loving Someone Under a Black Cloud

A friend’s wife died suddenly a week ago. She was just a few years older than me and, as far as I knew, she wasn’t sick. When I called him to find out what happened, I was stunned to learn that she had an addiction, one that took its toll last weekend. He said it was something she had battled for a long time, and obviously he battled right alongside her.

 

This couple had an amazing love for each other, yet outwardly there was no sign of the struggle they endured…

Yet a recent collaborative study that investigated the relationship between laughter and grief found that it is perfectly understandable to laugh at a time when you least feel like…
