Munchkins Mom is about the twists and turns of living under faith and what is needed to continue living after loosing someone very close to you.  Some of it may seem a daily post, other posts will show you how to overcome the devastation and loss.  It is hard.  Yet after loosing 2 children 30 years apart, I’ve come to see this in a new light.

I guess you could say, I have experience.  Not a resume you want to carry with you to an interview.  But it is true.

When we lost our first daughter it was back in 1982.  I wasn’t quite 21 yet.  So the grieving and loss were different from where I am now at the age of 52.  Age, life, experience has greatly changed.  Yet the actual loss is exactly the same.  How I am getting through this one is slightly different.   This time I know to stay close to my faith.  This time I am getting through it…..a little different.

I am as stated a 52 year young lady that has been married for almost 36 years.  We have had 2 daughters together and both have passed away at a very young age.  We also have 3 wonderful grandchildren from our daughter whom we adore.  I was in the medical insurance industry for over 20 years until I was bored out of my mind.  I joined as an Independent Scentsy Consultant back in 2008 and have been doing this full time now for almost 3 years.  It has and still does gives me the ability to live my life the way I want to.  I stay quite busy with the business and my customers yet manage to spend lots of time with our grand children.

Munchkin was our second daughter who passed away on January 21st.   My main topics in this blog are for her, about her and me.  What I’ve discovered through this passage that no one should have to go through, yet we do and how to come out of it a better person and be able to live and not under despair.

My goal here is to (hopefully) help, touch and show you that life is still worth living.  Even though you do not feel that way sometimes.  “Been there, done that, got the T-Shirt, TWICE!”


(for information on my Scentsy business I have 2 websites.  One is my main web at:, the other is my accomplishment at: — Yes, I build this one.  Not the best, but certainly not the worst.  But it was something I did on my own.
