danielle: a strength you didn't know you had

sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you find yourself in a situation you never thought you would be in.  you are forced to dig deep and find a strength you might not have known was there.

my friend danielle is traveling down a road she never imagined being on.  her strength and courageous spirit inspire me.  she digs deep and continues to move forward because of 2 very special reasons: 

reason #1

reason #2

i can only imagine how many times you might have heard the saying: "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  i can also imagine there are some days you would like to have those lemons with tequila and salt.  that is part of the cycle, i suppose.  

this image tells a story

my friend,  i admire your tenacious spirit. you have endured a truly difficult experience.  you are independent.  you are beautiful.  these last few months have been challenging but you have dug down and found a strength deep inside.  you will get through this.  continue to be the woman your boys can be proud of. 

typical brothers...  i love how this picture captures the big brother vs little brother

these boys love their mama <3

danielle, you are an amazing mother to your boys. they think you hung the moon.  i enjoyed our afternoon together and had such a great time with all 3 of you.  i look forward to  hanging out with  you again very soon. xox, aj
