"WE CANNOT LIVE ONLY FOR OURSELVES. A THOUSAND FIBERS CONNECT US WITH OUR FELLOW MEN."- HERMAN MELVILLE

Here is The Monday Motivation (TMM) for you! Have a super wonderful week ahead.

 

Becoming a member of Home Hospice Association happened rather organically.  After my husband was diagnosed with colon cancer at age 44, we hit the ground running.  Through treatments and surgeries and with the unlimited help of our friends and communities, we danced with death for over six years. There was never going to be a way I could pay our supporters back for their kindness and love, but I told all of them that I could pay it forward.  Enter Home Hospice Association.

 

Enrolling in the Death Doula certification workshop, I found my purpose and passion and how I could pay it forward.  While we gathered in a circle, we were “tied” together with a piece of yarn showing how we are all connected and when death happens to one, it happens to the whole.  While the event was over three months ago, I have kept the yarn that was tied around my wrist.  It represents to me that I am a part of the bigger whole.

 

Youth today have such a wonderful opportunity to become involved in a movement of lessening the fear that death holds in our society.  By attending Death Cafes, becoming a volunteer in the Association and beginning a discussion with their family and friends about death and what it means to each is the springboard to a lessening of fear.
