Life is not measured by the breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away.



I get scared sometimes, and disappointed and angry. I get scared that I want be good enough, that I will let others down. I have doubts that I sometimes let get in my way. Things happen. Things you don’t expect.. or want,.. or like and you become someone you didn’t know you would ever be. And there you are.


Life turns out to be nothing like I imagined. I want things for my child I never thought I would need to want. I want possibilities. I want opportunities. I want places to grow, to meet new people, places of surprises, places of safety, places of friendship, but most of all I want places of love. I want his options to be open and his future unlimited.
