Our New Year's Tradition

Each year our community shares a tradition of choosing one word that reflects our intentions for the coming year.  Would you like to join us?  What do you want to add to your life in 2016?

Choose a word that represents one intangible thing that would improve your life. As 2015 becomes 2016 hold tight to this word, and step into the year ahead.

Soaring Spirits has chosen the word REACH to represent our intention to reach out to even more widowed men and women in 2016 through our innovative and hopeful programs.

Know that as you enter 2016, you have a community of people behind and beside you.

We are in this together.

"Thank you for your post TorontoLucy. I never got a chance to really wear my wedding ring and have felt odd suddenly starting to now that he has passed. But I do still feel very married to him. Maybe I'll try wearing it on a chain."
