Living my new normal

Finding Myself

  • I am so thankful you came out of you comfort zone and joined us in AZ!  I am thankful for your friendship.  I am thankful for  we have found a place where "me too"  help heal the heart!  


  • I am glad that I got to see you at SU. I agree with you. My academic achievements I do for Allison. I think that doing things for them is what makes us moms, well besides the carrying them in our womb. I am glad that you had a good weekend. I hope I see you next year. Hugs.


  • Nicole,

    I loved seeing you again this year!  Going to ShareUnion is in itself a huge step out of anyone's comfort zone.  I had no idea you had flying anxiety too.  I am so glad that you overcame those to join us!

    Big hugs,


  • Nicole, I am so glad that you stepped out of your comfort zone, got on the plane, and flew to AZ for such an amazing weekend! I felt the same way when I flew to my first SU in 2010. Afterwards, I felt a huge kick in the pants to get out more and live life once again. It wasn't going to be easy. At that point, I was still very much on survival mode and chugging along for D and T. There was guilt in wanting to do more in a way, but I realized that there was still so much life to live and I had to do it the best I could for our angel.

    You GO girl for getting on that plane! Do it again next year too, okay?


  • It is not easy to get to the place where you can be grateful for what has come out of your loss, but it is a good place to be.  It doesn't mean that you still won't feel sadness about what you lost, but it means that you are integrating the loss into your life in a healthy way, and looking at what gifts it has brought you.  

    It's so great that you stepped out of your comfort zone to fly all the way to AZ to spend the weekend at SU.  It's always a meaningful experience.  I missed being there and seeing everyone, but I do hope to make it next year.

    Big hugs,


  • Nikki,

    This weekend would not have been the same without you and even though I would wish with all of my wishes for you to never have known that Share existed I am so very happy to have you as my friend. I feel very honored to have been able to recognize Colin as Scott's big brother. To be honest I have never thought of him any other way. Lots of hugs as you dive back into your routines.
