“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein


Eighteen years following Brian’s death were filled with very tragic times, i.e., an abusive marriage, raising 7 kids (3 his, 2 mine, 2 our's), six years as a single mom, working and raising my two youngest sons, completing my college Design Degree, my best friend Jeannie being murdered by her husband, my mother passing.

To quote Bill Crowder in his booklet, “Out of the ashes”,

“How do we respond to our inevitable suffering and loss? With fatalism? Realism? Doubt? Despair? A combination?

Our hearts and minds are often torn between these options. Sometimes we despair in fatalism, sometimes we affirm our faith in the midst of screaming doubts. Holding on to our confidence in the reality and power of God, especially when circumstances defy our understanding, can lift our experience of hardship to something more.

“If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke 

What we Believe is listening and empathizing can have a profound effect on biological and functional health outcomes as well as patient satisfaction and experience of care. Further, communication on all levels among healthcare team members influences the quality of working relationships, job satisfaction and has an impact on patients.

It is highly appearing that our health is in some ways strongly dependent on other people. Social support and social interaction have a positive influence on human beings’ physical and mental health. It lowers occurrence of stress, depression, anxiety and also highly affects our endocrine-immune system. 

From different perspectives, including psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience, biochemistry and health policy. What has emerged in the course of the years is that not only should health professionals learn technical skills, but they also should develop appropriate social skills to better interact and communicate with their patients.
