Losing Mom Part 1:I Don’t Miss Her Every Day - Thank You For the Guilt.

IMG 3844My husband Tim keeps saying you need to write about your mom! Her story - the anger, bitterness, dementia, and transformation - it's powerful!  And he’s right, but he always seems to suggest things that make me dig deep – ugh.   I guess I wasn’t ready until now.

Hard to believe it’s been 4 months since she passed.  How can I even say that I don’t miss her every day?  If you’ve lost your mom and you had a close relationship with her, you probably don’t understand this statement at all. So many people, meaning well of course, have said Oh I know you must miss her so much!  Oh I know not a day goes by that you don’t wish she were here.  Then there’s the guilt.  Am I a monster?  I love my mom and I know she did the best that she could.  I forgave her years ago, and also tried to better understand her.

    Your delivery was so engaging to our members that we could have stayed for more & would have lost all track of time!

    When the Conference was over and the evaluations collected and tallied – on a scale of 1 to 4, 4 being “excellent,” Tami’s scores were ALL 4’s. Comments included, “I could listen to Tami for 8 hours,” “please bring Tami back,” “would like more time for Tami West to speak,” “Tami was the highlight of the conference,” “Tami was absolutely inspiring! And funny! I would love to hear her again,” “Tami West – GREAT,” “Tami West was FANTASTIC.” Those comments pretty much say it all.

    Tami is a dynamic speaker! She has worked with us at various times. She has the ability to draw in others into discussions. She has always gone above and beyond what we have expected. She is polished and rated in surveys as our TOP speaker.

    Tami has spoken numerous times for the Tennessee Association of Medical Staff Services' annual education conference. She has always done a superb job! She is such a talented speaker that you feel like she is talking directly to you, not the other people in the room. In the session she will make you laugh, make you reflect, and definitely make you think.

    It was the BEST Inservice day we have had! Many positive comments about the presentation.

    Tami led a couple of sessions at a conference I attended in the UK. Her talks were entertaining and inspirational, giving me much food for thought and lots of practical tips for self-improvement both at work and at home. Her books offer more of the same. Book her - you won't be disappointed.
