ORANGE COUNTY, CA CHAPTER
Together, we will share our hearts, spirit and the “MWC” home with one another…a community, a family…a circle of strength, founded on faith, joined by love and loss, held together by courage and compassion for one another, and hearts bonded together, forever.
The intent and purpose to serve as MWC’s OC Chapter Leader was that for me…A RENEWED SENSE OF PEACE, FAITH AND LIGHT and my wish is to pay it forward by spreading hope in BELIEVING the same is true for ALL.
On October 1, 2010; my Spouse, my only love, my best friend since Jr High…my other half, my lifeline had died; suddenly leaving me a widow. Falling to my knees from utter shock and disbelief; unable to describe the gut- wrenching emotions of heartbreak…hearing the words, “your husband has died”, literally took my breath away. In an instant…I felt a hollowness in my heart and my life was turned upside down. What we had built our foundation and future on was no longer a reality and my life purpose, obsolete.
His untimely and tragic death would leave me to parent our son thru his adolescent years on into adulthood; alone without him by my side, as my partner and confidant. My son was twelve years old at the time of his Dad’s sudden death which was a result of a solo auto accident on his way home from work during the late hours of the night or early morning, rather.
Our Beautiful Founder of Modern Widow’s Club, Carolyn Moor shared her story of vulnerability, resilience and transformation at the Modern Widows Club, Widows Empowerment Event I attended August 2018. Carolyn learned to embrace her grief and live life with gratitude, faith and courage. And by doing so, it encouraged her to create a community of woman who graciously support, inspire, lift up and provide hope and peace to one another and who’ve found peace through their own personal journeys of grief, acceptance and the power of resilience.
Carolyn and the beautiful, heart-centered group of women at “MWC” have been my saving grace, a gift and a light in my life. I am truly grateful, honored and blessed to be part of this community, fortunate for the opportunity to lead a Chapter here in Orange County, CA which is scheduled to launch February 2019.
