Why I Do What I Do!

This is why I do what I do🙏 Last week, I shared with my incredible Life of Mom community that it was 10 years since my mom passed away. I spoke about how much I missed her and some of the silly things she used to say to us kids, like “when I die, I’m going to come back as a seagull!” So for the past 10 years every time my sisters and I see a seagull, we yell “HI MOM!” In loss, I think it’s natural to cling to the signs that present themselves. In a song, in a rainbow and yes, even in a seagull. And there was something about my mom being gone 10 years that just hit hard. I cried a lot last week. 
Today, I’ve spent the day cleaning and folding laundry and going through a week’s worth of mail I’ve been avoiding because they are mostly bills I need to pay…then I came across a handwritten letter. It was from a Life of Mom community member, Melissa Whipp. Her words and sentiment stopped me in my tracks and filled my heart with so much gratitude it could have burst❤️ I often say how proud I am of the moms in my virtual village called Life of Mom but this just proves it🙌 Immediately I pinned it to my vision board, “a sign” to serve as a reminder that I am so blessed to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful souls and mothers 💙
Melissa, I am forever grateful for your kindness🙏
