Quote of the Week: New Beginnings

1 comment:

  1. This quote means so so so sooooo much to me! It is so true!!! If my life were a book it would have ended at, "...and they lived happily ever after as one big family." But in reality, we carry on, through the tears, the pain, the fears, the joy... We carry on. Because we have no other choice but to. My son's mom took on this journey blindfolded. Yes she knew my son, probably more than I had. But she didn't know my history, she didn't know know me nor my family, some she still doesn't today. But she chose to love my son as hers still. Technically he is hers. If possesion is 9/10's of the law then blood has to be the other 1/10. But regardless of who he is and who "owns" him, she is still mom. And I full heartedly respect that. I'm not always happy about it, but hands down and in a heartbeat with no hesitation, I respect that. And every time, when I do get in my feelings and wanna "take that away" from her, I remind myself that she can love my child just as much as I do. There is no reason she couldn't. Just because I think that...technically thought that...doesn't make it true. Because trust me, if something ever happened to my sister and I had to raise her, she would be mine. Everything I do, I do for my son. But I also do for her. Because she is my world just like my son is. And from then its a new beginning. And even though I fall sometimes, I always get back up. I have to keep pushing on because thats what I want to teach them in life. If they learn nothing else from me, all I want them to know and understand is that no matter what happens in life, you have to do for you. Nobody else will. You have to fight in this life for what you love. And you can't be afraid to accept the help when it's there. Because not everyone is willing to help you. People will try to knock you down... you have ignore it. Let it get to you for a minute, then suck it up and move on. Life is hard...but you gotta fight it for you. Don't expect anything but don't neglect anything at the same time. My favorite quote...
