Preparing For An Uncertain Future | The Mary Mac Show

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 148, we discuss the uncertainties in our world, inflation, home and food prices, unstable governments, and how we must reevaluate what is important to us and how to cope when we have little control over our new world.

The world we once knew is no longer available to us.

We will never see the way we lived in 2019 again.

And you might be feeling overwhelmed and upset that we have to deal with all this when we are also grieving for that special person in our lives.

It’s just so unfair.

But we can no longer act like this is not happening.

People who hold the power in governments have created these scenarios, mostly for their own gain and benefit.

They weren’t interested in helping their citizens have a better life.

Instead they have an agenda they wish to see played out and it’s hurting all of us.

And we’ll see get even worse in the months to come.

In Episode 148, I want to help you better understand what is upon us and consider ways to help you become stronger in mind, body, spirit and knowledge.

Bless you, my Warrior!

The Mary Mac Show | An Uncertain Future

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 145, we consider the impending changes in our world and how they might affect us as we grieve our loved one’s death.

We, unfortunately, don’t have the luxury of sinking into our own grief as we once did.

We are dealing with inflation causing everything to cost more, possible job layoffs, increased demands on our time from family and friends who have not prepared themselves for the future and so much more.

It would be much better if we didn’t have to be exposed to this. Just live our lives with no interference from government.

But that’s not how things are developing around us.

So it’s important to be aware, do a deep dive on your financial, physical, and even spiritual health so you can continue to grow strong and be confident in the future for yourself and your family.

Listen in to Episode 145 to learn more.

Bless you, my Warrior!

The Mary Mac Show | Death of Dory’s Father II

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 140, I continued my discussion with Dory Fier of Indianapolis, IN, a pediatric social worker, who shares with us the terminal diagnosis her father received and his nine-month battle with an inoperable brain tumor.

In this second of two episodes, Dory and I delve deeply into how she dealt with the aftermath of his death and the physical symptoms that appeared for her.

We discuss how she wished she had taken advantage of the support system that wanted to help her and was grateful for those who did offer her assistance.

We also spoke about the difference between grieving an anticipatory death vs. a sudden death and her thoughts on that.

I am so grateful for the time Dory spent with me and I believe her courage to share this experience will benefit and bless you whether you are going through this struggle now or may in the future.

Much Love to Dory and her family!

xoxo

The Mary Mac Show | Death of Dory’s Father I

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 139, I had the pleasure of speaking with Dory Fier of Indianapolis, IN, a pediatric social worker, who shares with us the terminal diagnosis her father received and his nine-month battle with an inoperable brain tumor.

In this first of two episodes, Dory and I delve deeply into all aspects of her father’s battle with glioblastoma, his original stroke misdiagnosis and dealing with paralysis for the remainder of his life.

She speaks candidly about how she, her sister and mother rallied around her Dad and cared for him during those nine months, moving him back to Indianapolis where they lived, from his then home in New Mexico.

She also discusses the toll it took on herself mentally, physically and how she juggled it all with her personal and professional life.

I am so grateful for the time Dory spent with me and I believe her courage to share this experience will benefit and bless you whether you are going through this struggle now or may in the future.

Listen in next Sunday to hear Part II of our interview.

Much Love to Dory and her family!

The Mary Mac Show | Considering End of Life Choices

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

In Episode 138, we discuss the courageous act of developing an end-of-life plan for what we would like to happen should we become ill, unable to care for ourselves, or die and the decisions that need to be made so our families know of our desires.

It is not easy to speak with our loved ones about death and dying.

It can be even harder when we need to speak about the specifics of what each individual wants for their end-of-life choices.

Often times, it can be something sudden and dramatic that has taken place which makes us realize now is the time.

But please be wise and not wait until it’s so late that you don’t know what their wishes are.

Perhaps an serious diagnosis or accident wakes us up.

Yet I encourage you to do is draw up the courage and speak about it now.

Would they want to be resusitated if they were at death’s door?

Would they not want to be resusitated and allowed to die as natural a death as possible?

If they are in hospice, do they want to die at home or in the hospital?

Do they want to be cremated or buried and where?

Has a resting place already been chosen and paid for?

Do they want a wake and, if so, for how long?

Would they want a church funeral and, if so, where?

And have they developed a will? Who has possession of it and who has been named as an executor/executrix?

There are so many things that need to be considered for our end-of-life situation.

And the sooner they can be arranged and let others in the family know their wishes, the smoother their death will be for all concerned.

No, it is not easy getting these things in writing, but it is vital for a less drama-filled event after their death.

Gather your courage and have those conversations now.

Bless you!
xoxo
