Though it All

Moving On

  • sending a big  hug and wishing I could give you one in person.   All we can do is our best and I have learned the hard way to just walk away from those who judge. It's like that poem that was shared at a shareunion about walking in our shoes until someone has had to...I love that you you are incorporating Luis' gown into your special day.  Try to focus on the your special day coming up and do what you gotta do to help yourself sometimes life can just get overwhelming no matter how hard we try to keep it all together.  Nicki

  • Maria, love you lady! So many shared feelings for sure. I always turn to my husband and tell him it's a miracle that I'm not running down the street naked and to be happy that I showered:) The pain and heartache is unbearable at times. I am glad that you are taking care of YOU. So many people depend on Mom to be okay and that also can contribute to those overwhelming feelings. As soon as I read "IEP," my heart just skipped a beat. Urgh as those would do me in. Stay focused on your special day and I so love that you've got Luis love on your dress too. Very sweet:)

    Hugs friend,


  • Sending you so much love. I admire your strength and your dedication to your family. You have to do whatever you need to do to get through every day of life as a mother, a wife and a woman in the world. I wish you as much joy as possible and continued strength to keep going.

    Love and Hugs
