Three Quarter Birthday!

My little sweet is 9 months old today. I can't believe how time flies! It's so bittersweet. 9 months ago my heart was opened and my life changed... 7 months ago, my heart was broken.

Wells has given me so much strength and brought me so much joy.

It's been a journey to try and appreciate that wells gave us life and joy in the time that we needed it most. I hope that one day he knows that he saved me. He showed us all that life is still worth celebrating. Having the circle of life play out so clearly was challenging, but at least there was light and darkness.

Happy 9 months my sweet, lovely boy. Thank you for being my light. Mama loves you...

It's Been A While...

It's been a while since my last post... It's been a tough few weeks.

It's hard to know what to say sometimes. I started this journey with the hopes of finding gratitude; of keeping positivity in my life. Sometimes that is easier than other times. Aside from my healthy, beautiful children, it's sometimes hard to find gratitude. It's a work in progress, I suppose. Maybe that's why I called it a journey.

Regardless, I'm here now. With gratitude. I had a really nice dinner with my Aunt tonight. It was so good to sit together and talk and share a good meal. I am so glad to have a tight knit family who I can always count on for a listening ear and a laugh. My Aunt Donna is no exception. I am so lucky to have her. I really needed a night like tonight, so I'm incredibly grateful for it.
