Ten Years…

Ten years?  Is that true?  Doesn’t seem possible…doesn’t seem real…

It is as if it has been a blink of an eye.  How does that happen?  So much healing, so much change, so much strength, so many tears, so many smiles, so much growing…

Over the last ten years I have learned what is healthy in my life and what is not.  I have seen my beautiful daughter go from a little girl to a beautiful, kind and loving lady, I have seen people pass in and out of my life and have felt blessed for those angels that have kept me lifted with their love.

The ten year anniversary of losing my beautiful son has brought me many, many signs this year.  Talk about the seismic shift in this world for me this is it.  I always look for the signs but this year my Quentin has flooded me with such strong signs that have all been life changing for me.  Some are harsh realities on what and who I allow in my life and some are gifts that were handed to me on a silver platter.  Gifts that I know are truly for my heart.  I have and will always continue to follow his signs as I know that it is the path that I am supposed to be on.  After ten years I have found a peace and strength that I never knew could ever be part of me again.

There was an underlining belief that at a 10 year point something would feel easier…better about what happened to Q.  That’s what they say in all of the “books”.  What I can say is that it somehow still feels like it was yesterday and that if I told you I thought about him 50 times a day that would be a very low exaggeration.  But it does feel kinder on my heart and not so sharp, that I will say.  Watching Morgan’s strength and watching her grow simply takes my breathe away.  She is always loving and caring, she is beyond beautiful.  How lucky am I…so very lucky.

I also wanted to share that our Quentin still lives strong inside of our beautiful Isa in Mexico and that is a gift.  Please be an organ donor if you are not…

I hope all of you find love, peace, joy and sparkles today.  Make each day special, make each day positive, make each day a gift because each day is a gift.

Love and sparkles xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
