Dance While The Music Plays

The music begins to play, dancing-couple-clip-art
Two hearts begin to dance,
Swaying to a melody of love.

The song seems to last forever,
But all too soon, is over.
The music ends,
The dancing stops.

In life, every hello has a goodbye,
Every beginning has an end.
Cherish the moments…
Dance while the music plays.

Stepping into the Dark

Losing someone is like stepping into the dark. There is no sense of direction or focus, the feeling of loneliness besets you, and there seems no end to the night.

It feels like the darkness will last forever, but there is a dawn to come. With time, the loneliness will fade and you will begin to focus on living again. With the tears of the night will come the smiles of the dawn as you remember.

Walking on a Better Road


If we look close,
We can see them,
Waiting and waving,
On a better road.

Smiling, they see us,
Loved ones from the past.
Waving and hoping,
For a place we’ve yet to be.


One Day at a Time

One day at a time is all we can do. Sometimes it’s one step forward and two steps back, but we keep going…putting one foot in front of the other…one step…one day…at a time.

Monday Mornings and Memory Bears


Another week is here…I hope it is a good one for you. My name is Bonnie, Memory Bears are my ministry and the grief and pain of losing a loved one is what we talk about here.

Memory Bears are 22” high and made from your loved one’s clothing. They are there for you to hold and hug, while you remember. Like the teddy bear of childhood, memory bears bring comfort on the rainiest day or in the darkest night, as you learn to smile through your tears.

Maybe, you are not experiencing a present loss, but you have in the past or you know someone who is going through the pain and grief of a loss. The information here is from my personal and professional experience with death and dying. Look around…maybe, there is something here for you or for someone you know. In either case, thanks for stopping by.

Remember, whoever you are and whatever you are going through…
you are not alone.
