Zach had his 17th birthday on Thursday. He choose to go to Popeye's for dinner. I had never been there. I can now say, it's not my first choice, but I loved being with him. Then we went to his school's Spartan Spectacular. It's homecoming this weekend! I got to see his special friend dance at the show and then her family and Zach and I went to Coldstone's for birthday ice cream. I was very excited that my son wanted me to go with him. It was time like this that makes me happy. All of his friends were with their friends. Zach was walking around with ME. I love this boy! His choice was to spend time with me and it makes me emotional thinking about it. I was struggling that my husband was home. Wow... life truly did change with CANCER.
HELLO MY NAME is...
I hope you will watch it. I am defined by God and I will keep going. I am truly thankful for my friend who shared this message with me. I am a WARRIOR and a child of God... so are YOU!!!!!!!!
I leave the home each day to carry on and keep going. My husband is home and I feel sadness that he can't do this anymore. His hair is trying really hard right now to come back. It's coming back a little right now as fuzz. It's hard to see because it's very light. Ty is still doing his daily transfusions. In all honesty, as horrible as the first transplant was for him physically- this one is by far worse. Ty is a fighter though. However, this transplant was much harder on his body and the rejection from the donors stem cells causing issues. I try not to post too much about it. It's our life every single day. I don't want anyone to worry. I just want everyone to know we are not giving up...EVER... and when you ask what you can do- it's this- pray.pray.pray for my husband. I believe in prayer. I believe that the tornados are there in our life make us strong and smarter. I believe that God has a plan for us.
Recently I had a personal situation in that someone let me know that "one of my competitors" was going to "take me down." I was so taken back. It was one of the times when YOU realize that in life, you have to choose firmly who YOU are. I know that for me, I don't ever wish anyone harm. I am a firm believer that competition is good for you. It should make you excel and always try to be better. I believe my biggest competition is myself. Often, in life everyone is so focused on what everyone else is doing... instead of their OWN story, life and what THEY are doing.
I choose to spend my time and energy on uplifting others. I love to mentor and help others. This to me is how life should be. Let's help to UPLIFT each other. Why does everything have to be so cut throat? I am never going to be that girl. I will NEVER let my success in business turn me into a person who would do "anything" to harm another person or company. So if you are in a situation in life and someone wants to harm you in a personal or business situation I hope you will not let them get to you. Just focus on what you are doing and don't get caught up in the drama or "the game."
YOU have to FOCUS on where and what you are doing. FOCUS to me is not letting negativity come into your life, heart and business.
I love each of you. Each of us have our own BATTLE. Don't give up!!!!! Be strong and be kind to others. We all have battles that often others don't see. I just felt strongly to share this message today. Excited for Homecoming photos to take and a day with my family.
