Hello! I am beyond excited for you to finally see the makeover of Cry Laugh Heal.

It has been in the works for months and after a lot of hard work it feels wonderful to finally reveal it live and in living color.

This remake comes about because I wanted a fresher, more polished look for Cry Laugh Heal.  One that would continue to contain personal thoughts about the explosive changes and quiet moments of desperation that can happen when a loved dies but also to give others who are grieving and trying to figure out how to get from one minute to the next a place where they may find a sense of connection and hope that a new future can be found.

I started Cry Laugh Heal a few years after my husband died in 2003.  Our sweet son was thirteen years old at the time of his father’s death and my priority in raising him as a single parent was to be as honest and resilient as humanly possible.  After a little over two years of grief work with a local Washington, DC support group and six years of volunteering for the same group, I wanted to give back to those who helped me develop a new kind of inner strength and Cry Laugh Heal is my outstretched hand.

I continue to miss my husband and will always hold him in my heart but I am also embracing my journey wherever it takes me and it would be great if we traveled together.  I hope you come to think of this newly designed Cry Laugh Heal as a solid online friend who is always there for you, ready to listen, and offer an emotional boost even in the darkest of times.

I would love to hear from you as your feedback matters very much to me.  This new design makes it easier to sign up and follow Cry Laugh Heal by email and also follow me on social media.  Believe me, I read everything that is sent my way.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your support!  I look forward to hearing from you!

    Mary Kate,

    Although I loved your “old” look, I do certainly love this one. It is fresh and inviting. And your words will remain loving and supportive.

      Thank you so much Debbie!! The “old” look was okay. I was never really happy with it. The whole process of transitioning to a new site took a lot longer than I imagined but it is well worth it. Thanks for your kind words!
