Filled With Love & Gratitude

Every Moment Of Every Day

Hello World 🌻 Happy Day My Friends

Wow I just hit 2k followers on Instagram and I truly am shocked…

When I started posting my poems on IG and my blog, I did it because it was a place for me to put them and save them because I had tons of scribble papers everywhere and I wanted to organize them and expand on my feelings about what I wrote.

It truly never was about gaining followers and honestly it still isn’t.

At first my page was private cause it was more of a journal for me than anything and within a few days, I started getting follower requests which surprised me actually lol…

Then I met Dana and in a private message she asked me where my poems and thoughts came from and I told her my story.

She suggested that I share my story and so I made my account public and did…

The response I got and the amount of people that started following me was honestly a little overwhelming yet I figured that if my story could help just one person that it would be worth publicizing it..

I love helping others, always have and always will yet never thought my poems and thoughts would receive the response that they have, and during this time, I found that there were quite a lot of people out there that were going through the devestating loss of a child too…

I was not alone!!!

Needless to say, I see people all the time thanking everyone when they reach a certain milestone of followers and decided that even though for me my page isn’t about gaining a million followers, I needed to take the time to show my appreciation for all of the followers I do have cause if it wasn’t for many of you I wouldn’t be where I am today and it’s because of the love and support from my IG family and my blog family, that day by day the pain that I bear gets lighter to carry and for that I am being grateful…

For ALL of you I am truly grateful!

So thank you so very much for all your love and constant support! For listening to my ups and my downs and for shining your light whenever mine goes dim.. I truly love you all with all of my being and just thought I should let you all know it…

Much love, hugs and smiles to you all..I AM GRATEFUL πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ’–

Every Morning Is A Fresh Beginning

Hello World,

Every morning opens the door to a brand new day. Brand new beginnings, new plans, new actions, new experiences and new lessons.

Don’t let yesterday’s worries ruin your today. Cause it doesn’t matter how old you are, it doesn’t matter if your successful, if you failed or if you’re just hanging on. Life begins the moment you wake up and start your day…

So start it with a positive thought, a big huge smile and know that whatever life throws at you, you can handle it.

So embrace the day cause life begins every morning so live it and live it well!

Falling Down Is A Part Of Life

Getting Back Up Is Living

Hello World

I wasn’t going to post tonight because I’ve been all emotional mess all day… Yet I’ve had so many beautiful comments and support about my loss that I didn’t want to go to sleep without saying THANK YOU.

Thank you all for all the beautifully kind words and support through this very difficult time in my life… You have all helped remind me that even with all the negativity in our world today, there’s just as many, if not more, beautiful people out there that still have beautiful hearts and souls and for the reminder and for all of you I AM GRATEFUL….

For those that are new to my blog… WELCOME…. My blog is about my healing journey from losing my son a little over a year ago and it’s been the hardest journey in my life. 

My daughter-in-law started a campaign for me (because of my limited disability income) so I can purchase a van that will be big enough for my mobility wheelchair and to honor my sons last wishes and sprinkle his ashes at all the places he wanted to see. Please take a look at the campaign and if you can help I thank you and truly appreciate it in advance, if not if you could share the link I would truly appreciate it. I’m ready to keep my promise and more importantly I’m ready to begin my healing journey! I’m ready to live again 😒

Much love to you all and thank you for taking the time to read my blog, it means so very very much. Sweet dreams my friends
