“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” – Benjamin Franklin
While taxes can be somewhat certain (hello April 15!), death and other sudden major life events often blindside us…feeling like a life apocalypse. Even when a long illness may have “prepared” us for the outcome, it still turns our day-to-day lives upside down for a period of time causing situational disorganization. So many questions arise. A sensitive one is, “What do I do with a loved one’s belongings?” It doesn’t seem right to classify this process as de-cluttering. Closing this kind of chapter in our lives should be handled with the utmost care and sensitivity.
A family member created this pillow and teddy bear from my grandfather’s shirts. Instead of giving them away (which is still honorable), I have a tangible piece of him with me. I am inspired to help my clients find ways to be purposeful and thoughtful with how to best honor their loved ones. It would be my privilege to help you through one of life’s common denominators we all share.
