Dear Sweet Son Jack,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful life and soul with your sister and I. We had the most beautiful crazy chaotic time with you in Disney and we are so grateful for your health and safety.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
To wrap my arms around you.
To hold you tight.
I am so proud of who you are even when we struggle or disagree.
I am proud that you have your own thoughts,
and your own beliefs.
I am proud of your self expression - happiness, anger, joy and laughter.
All of who you are is a master piece.
I feel humbled to experience you!
My life has expanded in ways I never dreamed possible.
In your unabashed and fearless expression I am tested, and pushed to grow.
Thank you for pushing and pulling and loving me.
Sometimes I worry.
Sometimes I make myself wrong.
I think most parents find reason to be unsure.
My hope and prayer is that we find the magic in the little things and little spaces.
I will always be there waiting with open loving arms.
Come as you are - there’s never a too soon or too late.
You are a gift to the world just as you are.
A beautiful soul.
Keep your spirits high.
Know your worth.
You are never alone.
I love you buddy,
Happy 6th Birthday Zella Monroe Miller
She is the light of my life.
My reason for getting up in the morning.
I experienced depression after giving birth.
My world felt grim for a long period of time.
Such a sweet gift and I was in such a sad space.
I kept quiet as to not worry anyone else.
I think many women can relate to these feelings.
After some rough situations, I felt began to feel better.
Today, I am so grateful I experienced the sadness, and depression,
after giving birth to my greatest joy.
I often wonder if the sadness was the joy.
Through the tenderness of my daughter, and the darkness of depression,
I learned to love myself.
I built a life for us I never knew possible.
I've traveled through South America.
I found beautiful women in my work that surround us.
I've spent a lot of time in Disney Land!
I am forever grateful to share her love.
She is a blessing.
Thank you God for knowing exactly what I needed.
I Love You,
As a native of Salt Lake City, Utah I grew up in a family well versed in the concepts of health and well being as a way of life.
