Over two years ago, I started down a road that I never knew I would go down. My energetic, athletic mom had cancer take over her body. It pummelled her, humbled our family and eventually took her body on Boxing Day six months later.
I rode waves of grief.
I had never known pain like this.
I had never lived a day without my previous mama.
But I did.
And I am.
I was at the beach a few days ago and was watching this:
And then I noticed a woman sitting under a tree, just like my mom used to, watching the boys play in the sand. I would have felt paralyzed by this before but now I just found gratitude in my heart for this beautiful woman who reminded me of my mama.
Living with abundance.
Living a life of my dreams.
I am continually surrounded by saints on this earth.
Friends who walk with me.
Strangers who bless me with their presence.
Friends who LOVE my boys.
Friends who ask ‘how are you?’ And wait to hear the answer.
Right now in my life, I am riding the waves of gratitude.
It hits me every day at how blessed I truly am.
I feel extremely grateful for who I am surrounded by, all that I have and all that I can do.
The possibilities are truly only limited by my mind.
My opportunities seem to flow into my dreaming mind and humbled heart.
I am free.
I am flying.
I am riding waves of gratitude.
