Who says it has to be the New Year to start a New Year?

A countdown for the remainder of the year appeared on the news this morning counting down the days until Thanksgiving, the first day of winter, Christmas, and New Years Day. It said there were 48 days left before 2019. It’s crazy to me that we are getting that close to 2020! It made me think

What few also account for is what grief does to the people around the bereaved. Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, abruptly lost her husband

What is Scarier Than Talking About Death?

There are several great books, short documentaries, and movies out there that emphasize the fact that we are all here for a finite amount of time. However, I’m not sure we really live that way, at least I don’t usually on a day-to-day basis. We will cover this very topic several times in our blog
