The Stars Above
Hello again. We are still here and we are healing and moving through the wide range of emotions that still come up on a day to day basis. After 7 years of sharing Mia's story very publicly through this blog, Facebook, and other various social media it was time to take a break. It has now been almost 12 weeks since Mia made her transition and we're starting to emerge from a much needed time of rest and reflection.
Mia's story is far from over and there is more to share, and much more coming. I am beginning to write my first book, and while this first one won't center completely on our life with Mia, her story will certainly be woven throughout. She is my inspiration for the writing and we are both very excited about it! The book is more related to my Health Coaching practice (you can read more about that here), and will be a practical guide to help anyone who is facing challenges in life both big and small, and looking to reclaim the health and happiness that is our birthright. Stay tuned for more info!
In the meantime, there is a very special story to share about Mia's memorial in New York. First, the memorial held at the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary in Bridgehampton was an incredible experience. We were surrounded by friends, new and old, family who had traveled far to be there, and the undeniable presence of Love coming to us from each and every one present. We are honored to have so many gracious and beautiful people in our life.
There were pictures of Mia everywhere, as well as signs Francesca had made for Mia's hospital room when Mia was first born and then taken to the hospital here in Boston. It's hard to capture the full presence of Mia but she was still felt fully!
On the evening of Mia's Memorial in Bridghampton, there was one of the most stunning sunsets that most had ever seen, and on the east end of Long Island that's saying a lot. Our friend Diane captured this beautiful shot of the sky over the water.
