I am in awe of people like Amber who do more than just comment on or talk about the things that matter. They actually make it their very real and tangible mission to BE THE CHANGE and do something about those things. The thing that matters to Amber is homelessness, and Feel Good Food Packs is a wonderful project providing packs of nutritious food to people experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.
As a Mamma, I’m not sure there is anything more inspiring than a fellow Mamma who has lost a child and gone on from that darkness to change the world. Even more inspiring is when this is done so humbly, generously and honestly. Catherine Hughes lost her precious little Riley (pictured) to a vaccine preventable disease, whooping cough. Catherine and her husband have made it their mission, and Riley’s legacy, to raise awareness about whooping cough and vaccine preventable disease. I hope that by sharing a little of their story we can all help them with this mission.
Leigh and I share one of those life events you wish you never had to share with anyone .. losing your Mother to cancer tends to connect women in a way that nothing else can. Leigh has been able to connect Mothers like us from all over the world, through her book ‘Without My Mum’. I have to confess that I am still working my way through it, there is so much similarity that at times I need to put it down. For me this is the measure of a book, how much emotion it can stir. Leigh has honestly, sensitively and so generously opened her own broken heart so that others can heal. I hope she realises just how many hearts she has helped healed ..
