I wanted to take a moment to express how grateful I am today.
First and foremost that my Layla was unscathed on Sunday. And secondly, for all of you. So many of you left me such comforting words, and you really have no idea how much I needed to hear them. So, with all sincerity I thank you.
Of course I feel like the suckiest mom on the planet...and I doubt that will change anytime soon.
But I do realize I am not the first mom to deal with such a heavy burden of failure, and unfortunately, I won't be the last. But to know that people understand, that people forgive you, and we are all here to live another day...that will suffice for now.
No doubt this is a reminder to love a little deeper, hold a little tighter, laugh a little longer and appreciate until it is truly all over. I am grateful today.
