I learn EVERY SINGLE DAY that if you are open to growth, you will learn from people who are also not afraid and open to grow.

I had a wonderful afternoon with my baby girl who’s not really a baby anymore.

It was one of the best afternoons I’ve had in a long time. It was really, really nice.

On Saturday, I pick up my eldest daughter and head up to my sisters for a family weekend at her lakehouse.

All three of my kids will be there. All of my family will be there.

I’m SO excited.

I took for granted my life for a really, really long time, and stole pieces of my children’s childhoods and caused great rifts in my family because I simply was not there in a healthy, functioning manner, and years of physically not being there either, because of it.

It is my deepest regret in life.

I have used it to propel me forward into today, and to never ever let it happen again.


I am blessed because my children love me. They allow me to be in their lives today because I do the work to deserve it, today.

They are good humans, beautiful souls, and I am lucky.

I wish I could relay to them how much I know it.

Missing Karter.

Grateful today for sobriety, truth, conversations with your kid, growth, change, and building healthy relationships with my family and for my life.

What are you grateful for today?

I hope you are giving yourself the love today that you always give everybody else. 🙂

You deserve it too.

Thanks for reading friends.
