Excited to have my book Woman First Mother Second first in line to be read by a new book club called A Touch of Inspiration created by Tashina Barnes. It’s a Long Island based women’s book club aimed at empowering women through reading. Its always good to partner with another women doing positive things. We are uplifting one another instead of tearing each other down. Women empowerment isn’t just a word or movement; it’s a way of life.
As my twin boys turn 2 years old in 11 days and my 8 year old daughter begins puberty. And my 6 year old son drives me crazy. I am overwhelmed by stress, joy and fatigue. Wondering when these doctors will see how serious Lyme Disease is and find a cure. Because its a battle that is exhausting, mysterious and painful. Being a sick woman and mother. Not to mention a wife, writer and student. Life is crazy and days are long. But giving up is something I never could do. No matter how many times I thought about it. It just wasn’t something I could actually see through. Because of the four little faces I wake up to every day. I know waiting for cure or to finally find some answers to improve my health to at least 70% is worth it. So I never give up hope. I just continue to do my Lyme research as I push to get better. Being grateful to be alive to raise my children and to grow old with my soulmate. To empower other women and to share my story on this blog.
I like to look at the big picture to keep me motivated each day. To keep me fighting to get better. So I try not to get annoyed when they twins are having their “crying challenges”. Or get mad when my older children are fighting over an eye roll. I look at all the good, what I have to be grateful for. I have been blessed with 4 smart, amazing children. And 2-year-old twin boys who are Lyme free; healthy, energetic as can be. So although I walk in pain, get exhausted when we play and Lyme disease still lurks around. I am alive to raise, teach and guide my legacies. Because I know despite all that I endure daily. I am blessed to see my children grow, laugh and smile. Not every mother gets that chance. So I have learned to be grateful for the smallest things that come with no price tag. . . .
