Mother's Day

It was Mother's Day.  A few weeks earlier we learned that the chemo had stopped working, and that the cancer had spread.  We were supposed to go on a family vacation as we had never been on one before.  But my mom was too sick to board the cruise, it wouldn't be safe.  When my husband and I returned a week we learned that she didn't have long.  It was devastating.  So going into Mother's Day, we knew it would be our last.  That stung so bad. I woke up that morning and peed on a stick.  Sure enough, it...

My Momma

Let me back it up a bit here.  My mom was a single mom most of my life.  She was amazing.  She went to school and got her degree while working full time to support me.  She saved up enough money to buy us a house all by herself.  She literally did it all.  She was more than just a mom.  I didn't have any blood siblings so she was like a sister, my mom was my best friend.  She was always my biggest supporter. My mom was my biggest inspiration for life.  She was all about the ASK.BELIEVE.RECEIVE. positive...

The First Baby I Lost

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day and as 1 in 4 - I want to share my story to help break the stigma around pregnancy loss.  This is Chapter 1 of an inspirational story of love, loss and motherhood that I will share over the next few weeks.  It was the day after Thanksgiving, 8 years ago now. My husband and I were expecting our first baby. We were the couple that were MEANT to be parents. You know a couple like that I'm sure. The one who always offers to babysit their friends' kids, is called "Auntie" and "Uncle"...
