The Queen's Chronicles
TO MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE
The Queen's Chronicles
maintain its mission to promote meaning, moxie, magic, and majesty to women in midlife.
My deepest appreciation to all of you who have contributed to keep
The Queen's Chronicles alive since 2007. I could not have done it without
your kind support.
CLICK HERE to see a complete list of our past generous donors.
Since I found you, you have birthed within me new ideas, wonderful emotions (mostly happiness) and awe. I am not only in mid-life but my only child is graduating from HS and I have lost my business. I still don't know what the next chapter will be and most of the time I am afraid. You have been the calm in my storm so often and I love you for that.

Are you looking for
meaning, moxie, magic & majesty in midlife?
The Midlife Midwife™
The transition from Maiden and Mother to Queen and Empress can be a difficult one, fraught with hard lessons and lots of loss. It takes great determination and courage to confront and embrace the changes brought about by the midlife passage.
It can be really helpful during this confusing time to have the inspiration, advice and encouragement of a counselor/coach/mentor - someone who has been there and done that and is ready to help you do the same.
Queen Mama Donna offers upbeat, practical and ceremonial guidance for individual women and groups who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching, influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity.

Sessions are available in person, by phone
To make an appointment,
Difficult times have helped me
to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things
that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

It is my hope that as more and more women rise to reign
in the fullest potential
of our supremacy,
we will harness our purpose,
passion, and power
and direct it toward
creating a more balanced
and peaceful world.
This is the legacy of Her majesty.
Your Crowning Achievement!

Letters In Response to the FEBRUARY 2018 Issue:
Such a good reminder, Queen Mama, and so thoughtfully written. May we continue to nourish our sacred selves, as you articulate so well. Blissings
- Glenys, Australia
I'm so grateful to receive the Chronicles ......always, but especially in particular this month. There's so much excellent material that I look forward to spending more time on than I have right now. The topic of self-cherishing/loving oneself is something I've been looking at (and hopefully taking in!) lately. Sincerely,
- Lynne, OR
It has taken me quite some time to reach a level of Self-love that enriches me and my life. I am thankful for your encouragement and support.
So interesting and brilliantly done Mama Donna!
- Gail, CT
Thank you for explaining, Mama Donna! My favorite is the Native American quote - so perfect!
- Holly, NY
I always love reading your letters!
- Nancy, NC
Just love you!

Please keep your letters coming. And do feel free to make suggestions about content you would like to see. Or anything else, for that matter.
Your letters will be printed in the next Queen's Chronicles.
We extend hearty congratulations to our multi-talented circle of Sister Queens for their impressive accomplishments and successes.
Use anything you can think of to understand
and be understood, and you'll discover
the creativity that connects you with others.

And we are glad to so. It is a joy and a privilege to share in the fortune of another woman. I recently heard Oprah say the saddest thing ever - "The hardest thing about being successful is having someone to be glad for you."
It takes a centered and confident Queen to break that pattern. There are 60 million thrones out there. One for each of us. There is plenty of purpose, passion and power for us all. May we use it well!
