• Day Six: Share your sorrow and cut your tears in half…

    Today I went to an appointment at the IWK to talk about losing Jonah Wynn and how I am coping both physically and mentally.  When I was sitting there waiting for the doctor I was thinking about my Mother and how heavily I rely on her support.

    My Mother has always been there for me from day one but it wasn’t until I had children of my own that I truly appreciated all of the love she has for me.  She is not the type of person who would go up and randomly hug you but rather the type who is constantly showing you how much she cares.  I think of her as a strong, silent type who holds unconditional love for her children.  She is not afraid to share her opinion with me and although at times I may not be ready to hear what she says; I realize I usually need it.

    Having my Mother stand by my side through everything I have been through has cut my pain in half.  Jonah’s death has taken a great toll on her as well however, just knowing she was there with me in the hospital and beyond gave me the courage I needed to get up each day and fight the pain all over again.

    When leaving the IWK today I came across a great quote, “When you share your joy with others, you double each smile and laugh; when you share your pain and sorry each tear is divided in half.”   So, for Day Six I feel it is important to continue to share what I am going through and in doing so chose to share my posts with my Mother so she can continue to walk alongside me in my journey of healing.

    Thank you Ma for being the person and Mother you are.

    Day Six: Share my pain so I don’t have to bear it alone.


    I believe in being a leader without title and always strive to do better. I am inspired by doing kind acts for others and believe in the power of intention. I don't give up just because I am told something can't be done. I ask why and strive to do the impossible. Hardships happen to all of us (everyone has a story) but I choose to look for the rainbow through the storm. I rely on my husband for support - he is my hero. Education is power and I strive to always learn more. I aim to live each day as if it is my last and choose to show people how I like to be treated. I say what I feel and aim to have the people I encounter leave better than they came. I love my career and do it because it is my passion. Because time flies when you enjoy what you do, I slow time down by being present in each moment. I choose to live now with no regrets of "should have". I enjoy life and the people in it.
