Today marks the 9th anniversary of when I lost my precious son Cliff♥
We lost him to suicide, and I now reach out to others in hopes that I can save lives in my son’s name. Cliff is helping others even though his flesh has left this earth.
The only peace I feel is that I know he is now healed from this evil disease that society tends to isolate people from.
We must spread the word of “Suicide Prevention Awareness“, after all, mental illness is a disease just like any other disease, ie cancer, leukemia, diabetes. We wouldn’t turn our backs on them, so we need to start “talking” and embracing the subject. That is the only way we will get comfortable in helping those struck with this disease.
Today, in honor of my son, all I ask is that you “smile” at a stranger instead of just walking by “minding your own business”. Acknowledge people, smile, spread the Love! There are some people who feel very alone, and as if the world would be better without them!
We are all here for a reason! Even the precious people who have been stricken with “mental illness”. They are not contagious, but our smile, our touch, our hearts can be contagious to them! ♥
SAVE a Life Today ♥
Please Reach Out Today! Show Love Today in memory of my sweet Cliff♥
Will you walk with us for Suicide Prevention Awareness on Saturday June 9th in Reedley, CA?
Here is the deal…..as you know, my husband Tony and I were supposed to be in San Francisco this weekend to walk in memory of my son Cliff. Well, since we have not raised the minimum $1,000 per person, we cannot attend and walk unless we pledge to give that amount sometime in the near future. Unfortunately that is just not possible right now. So, we will be walking in Reedley Saturday instead!
Please join us at the Reedley Cemetery at the entrance closest to the office. ( 2185 S. Reed Ave., Reedley, CA) We will be 3/4 of the way down where my son Cliff is buried. We will meet at 5:30pm and then we will walk from the cemetary down and through Reedley until dusk where we will meet again at the cemetary and share the moment with eachother and just talk about the loved ones we miss due to suicide.
I hope to see you there as we bring awareness to suicide.
Please email me with any questions you might have, and please pass the word along so anyone who would like to join us can! 😉
Today, May 25th 2012 marks the 7 year anniversary of losing my son Cliff to Suicide. I will be walking in San Francisco on June 9th dusk to dawn….please take a moment to watch this short video as I share this day with you!
Now they are speaking about families that have split up here, but this pertains to those who have lost loved ones to death as well. Often times there are children left as well. Keep this in mind, and try to make a new tradition that will not make it so hard on you because your loved one is not there.
Join me this evening on my weekly call as we talk a bit about the holidays, and perhaps how we can make new traditions that will help us get through the holidays. Also, I have some sources for discounted drugs, drug cards, and in some cases programs for free drugs.
Call in information: 559-546-1200 Meeting ID# 440-924-308# Promptly at 7pm PST
You are welcome to call in and discuss this with me, or just share about your loved one, and maybe even a suggestion on how you will start a new tradition this year!
I ran across this video this morning on Facebook. It is a great reminder of why we should stay. Take a minute to watch this video, and if you are in crisis, please click on the Suicide Prevention Lifeline logo to the right and get help!
As you may or may not know, I have a Monday night call that I do each and every week. This is my outreach to you, so if there is ever anything specific you would like to cover, please let me know. I would love to share whatever you might be needing.
On Monday, 12-12-11 @ 7pm PST you can call into my call. I am no longer broadcasting via Blog Talk Radio due to technical difficulties I had last week, but I do post the call onto Blog Talk Radio after so it can be listened to by others.
Here is the call in information….
Call 559-546-1200 Meeting ID# 440-924-308
This information will not change. The call in number and meeting ID will be the same every week.
So, mark your calendars for Monday evening and call in about 5 minutes before the start.
This week I will be talking about an author I found by the name of Graeme Cowan. He suffered from severe depression for over 5 years.
I also attended a webinar that he did today on enhancing your wellbeing during the holiday season. I will share information from that webinar as well.
He has also written a book, and I have an excerpt from that book that may give you an idea of whether or not you would like to purchase it.
