Starting Thought: Lessons in Life and Death

  
  
  
  
  
  

describe the imageThe past month has been one of beginnings and endings.  My second daughter, Noa, was born.  She was two weeks early and somehow knew she needed to make an appearance in this world ahead of schedule. 

A few weeks later, my Mom passed away from leukemia.  

One of my Mom’s goals in her courageous battle was to hold her grandchild.  She did.  

And in doing so she taught Noa and us all an important life lesson.  This month, I share a very personal story that translates to the world of work as well.

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. 
I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. It is a great thing that she was able to get to hold her granddaughter. Such a bitter sweet thing will grow sweeter in time.

I offer thoughts of joy for the birth of your daughter and sympathy for the loss of your mother. On behalf of the clients you serve, I offer rejoicing that there are thought partners like you, steeped in wisdom to apply these life and death lessons to the workplace. 
 
As a former hospice chaplain, I observed the mental health and productivity difference for caregivers when their workplace welcomed honest communication about that person's life experiences. This gave the tender roots of resilience a safe place to grow.
