Happy Birthday to my my favourite person... My mom. We truly don't deserve you!! I know everyone says their mom is the best, or the strongest, or the smartest, or the prettiest, or the wisest... And so on... but truth be told; my mom kicks ass and truly is the best of the best. This amazing woman went through cancer, 3 births, having her organs punctured, she chokes daily on her meals, she's been bullied, never met her biological father and had to deal with so much bullshit in her Life, but every day she wakes up and she tackles the day ahead of her. Even though she's scared everyday she might get sick again, or that maybe something else could go wrong.... she goes on. My mom is more worried about whether, or not I have a full stomach, support, and that I make it 2 blocks to a seven eleven, then she is about herself... that's cause she's selfless... Mom, you're amazing... You are my best friend, you're my buddy, and you're always here for me no matter what. I can't even explain to you how much you have helped me this last year, with all the unfortunate things I've had to deal with...
I thank God everyday that you're still here with us. I feel like he kept you here for a reason... he knew I needed you, that WE all need you. I love you mom. Happy birthday to my mom... an incredible woman and an even better mom, and best friend. #happybirthday#birthday#buddy#bestfriends#mymom#mymomisthebomb#49#mom#mommysboy#cancer#survivor#beautiful#thankgod#throwback#youth#family#blessed#anotheryear#yeg
Someone tried to chop this old Ponderosa down by axe. Looks like they gave up, and the tree survived not completely girdled. At 8'6" DBH it wasn't a record giant but an amazing display of the will to survive. I saw a number of survivors mountainside, crowned by lightening or fighting the beetle. Reminders of tragedy to triumph come in varied form. #keepclimbing#neverstopexploring#keepgrowing#survivor#story#livehealthy#behealthy
Brody Michael Warren - spent 14 nights in #nicu each day was different news, some bad, some good! We then had daily visits from nurses doing everything they did in the hospital but at home which I'm really grateful for as it saved us another 2 weeks of being in hospital away from our baby! Just before Brodys due date he was allowed to go out but only if no one touched him... when he was still in hospital I was still very unwell and spent the first 6 days down the corridor to him - when I couldn't sleep - which was always I would be able to visit him at 2, 3, 4 in the morning and mostly just cry alone holding his precious fingers.. I think this is normal for any parent - when you walk into intensive care and you hear all the alarms it really hits you how much you wanna be able to help them grow and get well & you just can't do anything... Well apart from express milk ... but that's another story! 💙👶🏼💖 #miraclebabies#preeclampsia#highriskpregnancy#nicu#premature#survivor
