55

I am “Mumsy.” Mother to 2 miracles, Jade & Dylan. I always believed in Kahil Gibran’s words from The Prophet, “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.” This trio has been through both genuine hardships and elation. The 3 of us decided to choose the latter. Embrace the joys, explore, travel, share compassion and give back to both the world & ourselves. Jade, Dylan and I set forth on a journey together both making healthy, strong decisions as well as those that we learned from. We have decided to celebrate the enormity the world has to offer, take advantage of its beauty & make our own decisions for ourselves without the influence of others. Give authentically. Like Mr. Gibran said, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.” Gracious at the direction those arrows are headed. When you celebrate life, it celebrates you back. It's like a boomerang. In lieu of anxiety and the worry, if you put out good energy all of a sudden all these good things start happening. Joy nourishes and gives a helping hand to extinguish pain so I'm kicking up my heels and honoring joy. Keep celebrating for eternity. Throw a big handful of confetti at each day. This is 55.
