These words are truer than true! I need gratitude everyday like I need oxygen. I'm so thankful for Ollie for a million reasons, but maybe most of all for the new perspective his life and death have brought me. Gratitude was a means of survival right after his death and overtime it's become a way of life. There are so many beautiful reasons to be happy everyday and I soak them UP! And despite the permanent space in my heart that Ollie use to fill, life is somehow fuller than ever before. Don't wait until tragedy strikes to do the same ❤️ Live everyday like it's Thanksgiving ❤️ Start each day with a grateful heart ❤️
On January 3, 2013, my 1 yr old son, Ollie, passed away. That's where my life "before Ollie" ends and my grief journey begins... My new normal, my path toward healing, my life "after Ollie". I'm a grieving mother who believes in hope. This is my story.
