In so many ways, my life has been forever life changing. I lost both my husband and my son, and I have also learned how to keep moving forward and healing. So may have told me I can’t imagine the pain you have gone and hope it never happens to me. Fair perspective. so many parents have lost a child and never recover from the pain,others have learned how to find comfort and peace in the loss. I had to realize the loss of both my husband and my son did not mean it was the end of me as well. Grieving is a daily process and healing takes time. Many people has told me they can’t believe my positive out look on life,but life is what you make it. I have a nice home, a good job I enjoy, and the love and support of my family and friends.

When I do get depressed I remember a dream I had about my son Levi. He told me ‘mom every morning you wake up,remember how much God loves you and how proud I am of you.’ What a positive way to start any day I think. Mind sets have changed so much that it seems like everyone is looking for something to gripe about. Life I found out is too short to be unhappy. Circumstances are not forever,life does continue in the pain, you just learn how to deal with it. For 2016, I wish you happiness beyond understanding,realizing it is the littlest things that count,  tell your loved ones how much they mean to you,how proud you are of your children,tell your parents simply thank you. Life gets complicated and fast I choose to slow down and appreciate what abundance I have and try to smell some of the roses God has given to us in his bountiful garden called life.
