- I will spend more minutes really listening really enjoying really appreciating what I have.
Thank you for following my journey.
|first time holding my baby by myself 3 long months later|
Yes I worked hard but I am pretty much a miracle because of all those doctors (especially the one who's yard we landed in) and YOU! You all helped, every single thought pulling for me, rooting for me, made the difference. How else can you explain countless doctors telling my family to say goodbye. I'm here, not whole & not "fixed" but alive which matters most. I'm thankful my child does not have to grow up with just pictures & stories to remember me by. I'm very proud of the person she is becoming.
"Seasons Of Love" from Rent just popped in my head, how fitting that it's been one year today. How do you measure a year? I know your child won't measure it by how clean or unclean your house is but will by the moment you've shared so put down that mop & if you have kids at home, pick up a toy (not to clean but to play) please for me for today play & snuggle those babies. You never know what tomorrow brings.
A quote that was forwarded to me by my sister
"I considered why it might be better to make a mistake---and learn from it ---than strain to get everything right"

Hope lives on in the person that still believes.
