"Take the sourest lemon life has to offer and

turn it into something resembling lemonade"


May 7, 2014

I’m sitting my my bed- exhausted. 

Watching The Voice. 

My heart gravitating because I feel like I did something good today- finally. 

My life is pretty awesome. I am so thankful for the things that I have and the things that I do not and for the things that I’m working on.. 

And while watching The Voice I’m reminded about something very beautiful that has happened over lots and lots of years… 

the support of really awesome people. 

My first supporters, of course were my parents… Pushing me making me go get whatever it is what I want- but my dad reminding me in the backgroud “It isn’t the wanting that hurts, it’s the getting”.  Boy is he so right.  Sometimes the hurt is worth it though.. 

Then of course– my teachers. 

Telling them I could be a rainbow- to I can draw the wind because, yes that’s something you can see- to making me be respectful-

My coaches- making the team- sitting out the game- winning a state championship… 

It’s all been a balancing act of knowing who to gravitate towards.. 

I look back over my life and I think I”ve done a pretty good job… 

I’m watching these very well known voice coaches/artist teach these aspiring entertainers and I”m like yes! I get that support- this is why I love this show. 

It’s a really beautiful thing when you meet someone who believes in you and supports you. 

I have a handful – ok a couple handfuls of those people: 

Family, friends, professors, coaches, teachers, pharmicists, nurses, and just recently a couple of special doctors… 

How amazing. I know this is just a little start to good things to come. Not only do I want to prevent stillbirth I want to educate a community and support grieving families. I want there to be a beautiful place where they can come and remember their babies. 

What I guess I am trying to say is that over the years I have met so many wonderful people.  People who didn’t forget me when Leo died- even though I stopped working with them years prior.. people who I meet and the next thing I know they are helping me.. 

Gravitate to the good.  I do. My wish is that everyone could feel the support that I do with whatever they believe in. Gravitate toward the good.  If there is a friend that does not forget a special date in your life or does their best to let you know they care thank the heck out of them.  Thank them.  That takes a couple sentences.  Let them know.
