HOW TO SMILE AGAIN:
Grief and motherhood
Katie and I met through my sons’ co-op preschool. I was the outgoing board president and she was incoming, so we spent some time together bonding over paperwork and filing systems. She was one of those upbeat, cheerful people who was always had a beautiful smile and a kind word for people. A few months later, Katie’s daughter died in a tragic accident while the family was on vacation in Mexico. She’ll be the first to tell you that the grief will never “go away.” But through a technique called the Grief Recovery Method, she found her smile again and she’s now helping other people navigate through the many emotions that come after loss.
