4 years ago today I posted this picture. My parents came down to visit us and we took them to San Antonio. This picture is on a river gondola. It’s crazy how just four years ago my mom was healthy and fine. I’ll have to check with her if she was experiencing any symptoms by this time or not for sure. But if anything it was a weak ankle or her foot randomly dropping causing her to stumble. I can’t remember for exactly.
At this point I was living Texas five years. The distance between mom and I from Pennsylvania to Texas was not so new anymore. I was happy here and settled in my life and role as a new mother, you know, as can be expected. And it was fun to have my parents come down together and to take them to some of the best places in Texas! It was fun Now the distance is not so fun. It’s too far. It’s too long between seeing each other. And it’s too scary to imagine how much mom will digress til I see her again.

I Woke up in tears at 5am to a very vivid dream of my mom. Im not sure what that means but it felt so real and she had a very clear message for me. Im still trying to process my whole dream and what it means, but Im so happy I got to see her so clearly, I love and miss you so much mom. #hugyourmom

My glorious, glorious mom! Pardon my obvious bias but she's genuinely such a beauty! Today would have been her 67th Birthday & we celebrate it in our hearts with her! 💝
Here’s to all the parents who are with us & those who are not with us anymore, because they give you, your life and then they give you, their life! #Mom #motherslove #HappyBithdayMom #hugyourmom

Last photo taken with mom. Thinking I had all the time in the world. Always saying next day off I'll visit. But who knew the next time would be never because she was gone. Like they say. Tomorrow is never promised...

Grief is like an earthquake. The first one hits you and the world falls apart. Even after you put everything back together again there's an aftershock. And you'll never know when those will come.

Quality control is important in any process. The season felt right for my mom's oatmeal cookie recipe. #cooking #cooking #oatmealcookies #motherslove #hugyourmom

This kid!
Threw his giant man arm around me this morning and told me he loved me❤️
His ability to verbalize how he feels and show affection is such a strength. .

6 months ago I wrote a post on Mother’s Day about how at 6 weeks postpartum I was led by all health care providers to believe that I would be healed from my traumatic birth - at 6 weeks pp I could barely walk. At 6 months pp I was only beginning some light exercise and at 13.5 months I finally began interval training to get back to running.
It’s now 6 months after that post, I’m 18.5 months postpartum and I’m really running again. I ran 9.5 km straight yesterday guys!!! I’m sure I’ll be ready for the 10km race coming up in two weeks time!

It’s been a long journey with a lot of physiotherapy and going slow and listening to my body and getting through times when I thought that I might never heal. I feel like myself now most of the time. I have a whole new respect for the profundity of birth and the power that women hold within their bodies and their spirits. We truly are incredible creatures, we are made of magic!

If you’re struggling postpartum and you think that you might never heal, I’m telling you that recovery has no time line. We are all individual, our bodies and our spirits heal in different ways and in their own time. If you want to know more about how I got to this point in my recovery or to help you with yours, let me know!

💔💗 My biggest word of advice for anyone is to #makethememories and #takethepicture ❤️ your closest family and friends won’t care how you look or if you’re having a “fat” day... what they will care about is if there’s ever a day you’re an #angel they’ll have those memories to physically hold and remember you by. Parents, grandparents and kids, whatever you are.. get in the picture.. you never know which could be your last.. today marks 3 years since mommy earned her wings. Today sucks.. having the memories we made over our lifetime together makes the hard times a tad sweeter. This was the last picture I FORCED my mom to take lol it was worth the fight ❤️😘 #hugyourmom #hugyourdad #lovelikecrazy #lifeisshort

“Laughter is the best medicine” My mom has been fighting this cancer fight for 8 years. I’ve never seen her without a smile on her face, joy in her heart and laughter filling the room. When I ask if she’s nervous or scared she usually says something like “Why should I be? God will take care of me.” #faithoverfear #hugyourmom #laugheveryday #beatingcancer

Giving some serious thought to everything I have to be grateful for today and feeling pretty humbled.

It is easy to get overwhelmed by life and by the aspects of it that maybe aren't going according to our plans. I've had a bouquet of challenges this fall and at the end of the day I still choose to be grateful because it is the only truly empowered and conscious choice. .

Today I am honoured beyond words to be making a turkey from my mom's recipe for this man in the photo I call my brother, his wonderful girlfriend, and my loving husband. .

Hold your family close and take a moment to count your blessings today. Time, health, and wealth are all temporary but a moment spent in gratitude is eternal.
Happy Thanksgiving ✨🦃✨

Art can be both representational and instrumental in that it can imitate or symbolize an experience while benefiting society by provoking thought and challenging ideas. What does this piece mean to you today? Growing up in a generally privileged society, I often forget that many of my belongings, comforts and freedoms are in fact, privileges and not inherent rights. I feel this is a problem with my generation: many of our families fled war zones, came here and worked very hard to establish comfortable lives for themselves and their future kin. Since we didn’t first hand experience the struggle, we lack value for the everyday mundane privileges. It’s not our fault, it’s just our reality. Jim Carey once said, “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.” Many of us often sit in a lack frequency - “if I could just accomplish this, afford that, look like that person, find a relationship, get this job THEN I will be happy.” But this is only a bottomless pit of unfulfillment. I feel that practicing gratitude is the key to a content and joyful life. It literally changes our vibe from one of lack and fear, to one of love. Happy thanksgiving folks! I hope you all are eating good food and counting blessings today ♥️ #hugyourmom #yegart #yeghomeless

Missing an annual Fall trip to one of my happy places. May my friends catch the big one 🎣. 🥚
Meanwhile, I’m spending quality time with my side of the family. 🥚
You know, you can never hug your mom enough. Last night she told me stories of some of the hardships she had to endure. No matter how little they had, my mom had a habit of saving. She said, even if it was only a dollar or two, she would put some away. 🥚
That is why they are able to have peace of mind about money in their retirement. #hatchinganegg #prosperouslife #abundancemindset #hugyourmom #cancersucks #ownyournetworth #fit2finance #highsierras #mammothlakes #convictlake #earlyretirement #beyond30days #investorlife

As some of you know my mom has dementia and I often video or record our conversations... sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry, sometimes we sing. Sometimes she knows who I am, sometimes she knows I’m someone she loves but is unsure of exactly who I am. On this day I was trying to capture something humorous ...earlier in our visit she introduced me to several people as her son...lol... but I ended up capturing something else altogether... these moments are so precious to me. #mymamma #dementia #forgetmenot #hugyourmom #hugmymom #hugacaregiver

I feel like I could cry every time I see this image of Jess and her Mom from her wedding day. It’s telling so much of their story in that moment. I’ve kept the image in my Instagram drafts for the perfect Mother’s Day post, but it sums up how I feel today so perfectly. Today my baby girl is home sick with my mom. It broke my heart to leave her when she needs me to make her honey tea and snuggle on the couch. But knowing she and my mom are filling each other’s cups makes it a lot easier. Thank you Mom 😘 📷: Kim Brooks
