Premie Love

My momma taught me at a young age that service was important.  We went to food shelters on holidays and we gave money to the homeless beggars on the side of the road.  Giving back is incredibly important to me, and it is something I am excited to teach the boys.  Since both boys were premies and spent considerable time in the NICU - that became close to our heart.  Elijah was born at 32 weeks with IUGR weighing 1220 grams, and Xavier was born at 35 & 5 weeks and was 5lbs.  Xavier's blood sugar was a 5 at birth and...

Three Months

Three Months

B Time has a way of slipping by ever so quickly.  Three months ago, I lost my dad to cancer.  He was 54, just shy of turning 55.  Even though I have been down this road before - it still just doesn't seem real.  Some days I can't believe my mom died and I have had 4 years to adjust to a new life without her.  My dad was larger than life.  This big happy guy was the one we called when Todd needed help lifting heavy furniture.  He owned his own painting and carpentry business and was built to...

My Miracle is Granted

When my mom got sick, I prayed and prayed for a miracle.  People all over the world, prayed for a miracle as well.  It was a feeling that I can't describe.  Sometimes I could feel the prayers and vibes wrapped around me like a blanket.  The feeling was so strong I could almost touch it.  It was very powerful, and I will never forget that feeling.  But the thing about miracles, is that they don't always come how we expect them. So about that miracle.  I finally got it.  Week after week I got to see this baby grow bigger...

The Gift of a Miracle

If you have stayed with me so far - THANK YOU.  I know that stuff was hard to read, and many of you may have had to reach for the tissues.  But this, THIS is why telling all of that sad stuff matters.  You see, there is a very special gift in all of this.  In fact, there are many gifts in experiencing a tragedy.  You just have be strong enough to CHOOSE to see them and understand them.  Without all of that sad stuff - there would be no story.  There would be no Momma Love.  I would just be...

A Christmas Miracle

When I first started writing the Momma Love Story, I was already on the other side.  If you read my last post - that was about as sad as it can get.  But the ending is really quite amazing and miraculous.  The thing is though, there really never is an ending.  Life comes and goes in waves.  Sometimes you are on top, and sometimes you are on the bottom.  Losing my mom was by far the hardest thing that ever happened to me, and if you follow me on social media - you don't need to finish the story to...
