Maggie’s Passing — Support

Within 5 minutes of sending an e-mail out announcing Maggie’s passing, I started receiving responses. As with the responses to the other stages of this journey, I’m going to share them with you in the hopes that they will provide you too with support. I can’t begin to say how much they all mean to […]

Life on Hold? Martyr??

A wonderful friend came to visit last night — not sure if it was more to visit Maggie or me 🙂 either way I’m so glad she did. We had a conversation that has transformed my outlook on life! For that I’m eternally grateful!! As we were sitting on the kitchen floor with Maggie (not […]

October 11 — Gratitude

As I was walking today I realized how lucky I was to have this time with Maggie and Tara. How it has changed my life in so many different ways. I decided that it’s important to record those feelings of gratitude so I’ll have something to refer back to when the waves of grief hit again and […]

New Toys!!!! An Earth Angel

A very dear client arrived here for her appointment yesterday with two stuffed “gooses” — one for Maggie and one for Tara. They were just delighted!!!! Maggie still is! We took one goose home and after our walk this a.m. Maggie wanted to go directly into the house and went right to her goose, instead of […]

Opening Up to Devine Guidance and Support

So far I have not really talked about my spirituality. I feel very connected to the spiritual realm and work with Spirit and Devine guidance in my professional practice as well as with my personal life — guess that’s a good thing for a Spiritual Psychotherapist and Spiritual Director 🙂 As with all other areas of […]

Suck it up

Suck it up. Stiff upper lip. Don’t show your emotions. I’ve heard it all. All my life. It was my motto. No more!!! I hope that you too, are able to release that motto, if it’s yours. Especially when it comes to grieving our human and animal companion losses. Are we being authentic to ourselves, to others […]

Maggie Soo’s God Mother — Dec 2005 – Aug 2010

There were many e-mails sent from Maggie Soo to her God Mother, especially when Maggie had done something I considered horrible, like chasing a skunk or rolling in a dead fish. I’m sharing these with you so that you get to know Maggie’s awesome personality and who she really was in this lifetime. You will […]

Maggie Soo’s God Mother — September 2010

Maggie Soo’s God Mother, who Maggie has the honour of being partially named after (Soo), is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. Maggie Soo loves her so much. So do I. I know our three souls have had many lifetimes together. I am honoured to have her as a friend and know that […]

Doing a Blog Support

Actually doing this was, and is, one of the hardest things I have ever done. Sharing my feelings, with myself is hard, let alone the rest of the world! I am getting better about it and as my wonderful therapist, Ken, said this week — ‘those flood gates are open and there’s no closing them!’ […]

Finding of Cancer Support

Once again, I reached out for support for Maggie (and Tara and I) after we got the news of Maggie’s tumour and the diagnosis of bone cancer with it’s dreadful prognosis. The responses were overwhelming and many brought tears to my eyes — good tears — tears of love and gratitude.  While in my heart […]
