“I Miss My Mommy” on TVO’s The Agenda

May 10, 2024

When Carla Lucchetta and the crew from The Agenda with Steve Paikin left my home, after an afternoon talking about grief and deceased parents, I felt relaxed and spent in the best possible way. Meaningful conversations will do that to you. Seek them out and be emotionally brave.

PS: I found it appropriate and hilarious that a scrunched up Kleenex ball made it into one of the opening shots. That’s so me. My apartment sometimes looks like a Jiffy Pop pan.

If you’re struggling with loss, I hope my book, I MISS MY MOMMY, helps you find a way to sit with emotions you’ve been avoiding, but can’t stop feeling.

Present the book to a friend who misses their mom on Mother’s Day, or someone who is still trying to make sense of their relationship with a parent.
