guiding you through grief, loss, and new life
Returning to Choice Every Day

Returning to Choice Every Day

Returning to choice, affirming the choices you’ve made and furthering them, is a daily practice. Intimately linked to gratitude, you are saying YES, THANK YOU! to your life. This sense of choice was part of my marriage vows. Supreme freedom in commitment. Consider that in your relationships and in your chosen work.
