The Best Blessings are Maroon and Gold

Sunday April 7, 2013 I dealt with the two year anniversary of my mother’s death. In honor of her and a warning to my fellow Facebook users as to why I was on hiatus I posted:


Hello Facebook friends,
Today is hard. It’s been the hardest day yet and I’m not sure why. Two years ago I lost my mom. I lost the woman who listened to me talk about my future. I lost the woman who told me to stand up for what I believe in. I lost my childhood hero. I lost the woman that gave me my stunning bone structure and knobby knees. Thank you mom for teaching me how to be a lady. You’re the reason I’m creative. You’re the person who put passion in my heart. You showed me how to love, how to respect and how to be stubborn. If I had a question, you had an answer. If I had a cold, you had the cure. Thank you for building me up to be half of who I am today. I know I’m going above and beyond what you ever pictured. Bare with me today. I’m happy, I’m sad, I’m mean, I’m having a mental break down and I’m just a mess wrapped up in a blanket burrito today.

What did I receive? I received the amazing amount of love ever. Not only did a group of friends bring me a basket full of goodies and things to make me smile (sadly not pictured below), I had some of the best people around me all day. Someone was always by my side. I can’t thank these people enough.

What did I learn? I’m blessed to know the LAS cohort and the people I’m friends with. I learned opening up heals the heart. God, the great being, the Earth’s energy or whatever you as a reader believe in has blessed me. All the tragedies that have been piling up have finally evened out. It took me only 18 years to meet people that are here to change my life for the better. I’m luckier than most.

Thank you great being in the sky.
