15 years ago today I was blessed with the most gratifying and honorable role in life...motherhood. It seems unreal so much time has passed since we welcomed you to this world but no matter how old you become you will always be our baby girl! What’s more incredible is the amazing young lady you’re becoming...such a well rounded, level headed, responsible, smart, beautiful, “don’t care to fit in and follow the crowd” type of girl. We believe in you and know you will accomplish great things. May God continue to bless you and light your path. We love you beyond measure!! #firstborn#proudmommy#blessed#grateful#HappyBirthdayGia#GiaGato#myquinceñera#quincenera .

the serenity of mind to accept that which cannot be changed; courage to change that which can be changed, and wisdom to know the one from the other
Happiest birthday to the love of my life! So beyond blessed to have found you! My favorite little 🦁, I wouldn’t want to do life without you! You make everyday a dream (well almost every day 😜) cheers to being old and married 🥳🎉❤️👫
Waking up this morning with such a happy + grateful heart 💓 ⤵️
Practicing gratitude was something I was taught as a very small child, so being thankful for food, water, shelter, and clothing came naturally to me as I grew up. What didn’t come as naturally- and what I remind my self on the daily is that in order to really really be grateful for your life, you have to be grateful for all the messy, dark, deep, intimate things you have faced as well
Things like the sexual abuse we face as children, the alcoholism we are surrounded by, the divorce that tore our family in two, the relentless bullying that we didn’t deserve, the substance use we were exposed to, the domestic violence we had to stand by and watch. These are the things I’m speaking about. It will not feel natural to be grateful for these things, trust me I know. Healing your inner child takes time and patience. The biggest mental and emotional hurdle I have ever overcome, was overcome by accepting my story.. the good the bad the ugly... honouring the truth, and allowing myself to feel some space between my emotions - in order to find clarity and gratitude.
Just think- you wouldn’t be here today, if you didn’t go through the things you went through. Your values, morals, and boundaries would be different. Your likes and dislikes would be different. The people you have in your life may not have come into your life. <—— this is where you will find your gratitude.
Tony Robbins once said “if you’re gonna blame people for all the shit, you better blame them for all the good too. If you’re gonna give them credit for everything that’s fucked up, then you have to give them credit for everything that’s great. ’Cause life is not so simple and black and white.”
