"Take the sourest lemon life has to offer and

turn it into something resembling lemonade"

There are people in your life, many people, that change it. 

Some make it for better, some for worse, many teach us lessons, and some make us want to be better. 

Shannon was my nurse the day that I delivered baby Leo. 

She knew what it was to deliver a baby that didn’t breathe a breath of life but she also knew what it is to have a baby that lived but for some reason God decided he needed him too. 

I’ve been going through lots of changes in the last couple of weeks. I’ve been trying to juggle a lot- but that’s what I was made to do. 

So when I went to Shannon’s event this weekend to honor her baby boys and I heard her voice I found myself calm down and go back to a day where nothing else mattered outside of those four walls. 

To me she is that day. She is one of the hardest and bravest days I’ve ever had to have.  

I love her for being there for me that day. I love her for letting me talk to her and her pulling up a chair in the little doorway to talk to me.  She wasn’t afraid. She wasn’t scared. She knew this day to. 

There aren’t many people that get to see me break down and cry. But I could for Shannon. 

I think there is something special about a person that you can show your true weak self to. She is that special person to me. 

Shannon. I don’t know if I ever told you this but I am so thankful you were there on baby Leo’s birthday.  You saw him before anyone else. You tried to protect me you supported me and I love you for that. 

Your voice. I heard it and I was instantly calm. It was that calm voice in my most scariest of days that helped me get through.

You were there for me on the day that forever changed my life. You’ve helped me make a change and I love you for that and I am forever grateful. Thank you and I love you.
