Cradled in my Mother’s arms,
my little fingers reaching out for Papa’s.
Daddy’s scratchy beard,
tickles my soft newborn skin,
as he leans in to kiss me.
Daddy’s little girl.
No matter what age I am still.
The light is passed on-
trying to care for my Son,
Like my Parents still continue
to care for us.
The most loving Grandparents
anyone could have,
still the best Mom and Dad.
My Son and I
Amongst all the mess, the toys strewn across the floor, screeching children running around my house -after the week we had been through as a family- I welcomed it.
I was simply happy that my Son was able to play with his friends, and squeal with delight and joy -that the previous week- he had been unable to do.
Sometimes we just have to take a step back and realize, that when it comes to life, not much is in our control.
Sometimes born out of this chaos of life, we find things we never expected. A friend to laugh and cry with. Unconditional love and advice from our parents… Pure joy, and realization that life is so darn precious. We find gratitude, and are sometimes humbled by our experiences. If we listen close enough, dare I say we may even find the voice of God?
Children, we are all children of God. Maybe if we saw the world through the eyes of a child, it wouldn’t be so bad. Chaotic and Beautiful, something that we did not plan.
I wanted to keep you all up to date on what is going on and why I have been neglecting my blog…
I rarely try to post things that are too personal, but I feel this time it is necessary. I recently started a go fund me account, because my Son has been in and out of the hospital. You can read about it on the go fund me page if you would like.

If you can’t contribute, all I ask is you share our story to raise awareness for childhood asthma, and please pay it forward to others that are in need. Even if it is just to lend a ear to listen to, and kind words of encouragement.
The kindness that people have shared with us, has been more than enough to get us through those difficult days and nights, and the many more difficult days we have ahead of us. (As I am having suspected Gallbladder issues.)
As Dory would say, “Just Keep Swimming.” That’s all we can do right now at the moment.
