Little dancers

Soph & Grace had there dance recital. We decided to opt out of the recital last year and go see daddy in Winnipeg instead so this was a whole new thing for us this year. It was so fun for them to finally be able to show us all what they have been working on for the last few months. I was really impressed with how far Soph has come in the last 2 years. She started when she wasn't even 3 and she could barely walk without tripping over her own two feet. She is much more graceful now and it has really helped her come out of her shell too. She used to be so shy! I don't know if she will be doing ballet next year or if she'll do gymnastics instead but I do know that I am so proud of my little dancer and how brave she was dancing in front of all those people! I don't know if I could have done that at 4 years old.

I can do tough things

Im still here...
And Im ok

My mom said something that really hit me.
She said through losing weight she has realized she can do tough things.
Little did we know that the emotional journey my mom and I set out on 1 year ago to lose weight would actually prepare us for what happened 2 months ago. 
I miss her so much, my heart hurts so much.
I still cry everyday.
I dream of both of there sweet faces every night.

But I am ok.
Because I'm stronger that I thought.. and I can do tough things.
