The Diary of a Happy Mom: 40 and Beyond

The trials and tribulations of an adventurous modern mom

I will never, ever give up faith and hope

I started the practice of yoga this week and am realizing how much I need this right now in my life to balance my body, heart and soul. Today I’m dedicating my mantra to someone I love very much. Someone who is about to embark on a long, difficult journey that will impact every part of his body, mind and soul. A journey that will impact me dearly and try to tear me apart.

Diagnosis stage 4 cancer is just a number. It is life or death. Yet you can never ever give up. Never ever stop fighting nor let this battle take you over.  There is hope. There is a chance. Yet we don’t know what the outcome will be, we never will. Life is always uncertain and that reality makes life excruciatingly difficult.

Day 1: Friday, November 8th: The devastating news…yet hold on to hope


My journey will be told here as well. I know it is not the journey people want to read about everyday. It is going to be a very difficult road. But I’ve climbed mountains. Many mountains. And I know that we will climb many more.

If I can help or inspire anyone going through this journey in life, then I will feel I’ve succeeded. If I can make my own journey less difficult and more full of love and support, then it is worth exposing my soul.

Day 2: I’m stronger than I think….
