If I got pregnant again, I could die: but I wish I could have 10 kids

Recently, an acquaintance on Facebook wrote something that struck me. Here is what he wrote (I have omitted any identifying information to protect his privacy): “Dear Facebook World, I have to admit something. The past nine months I’ve been scared. I’ve been scared to announce that my wife and I were pregnant with our 5th […]

Examining My Priorities

Happy birthday to my beautiful, kind, loving, joy-filled daughter who turned three-years old today! Although I do not share face pictures of my children online, I thought I would share this one of her yesterday as she dressed up for her birthday. She is getting to be such a big girl!!

Let Your BODY Speak a Language of LOVE Through CHARITY!

It has been a while! I’m sorry I haven’t blogged lately; I have been very busy!

Celebrating A Year Later

On July 28, 2011, I returned to the hospital where I gave birth to Ella one year ago, the same place I died and was revived back to life. I invited the doctors, nurses and staff to a party to celebrate this glorious one year birthday of Ella and anniversary of my survival. The staff […]

Ella’s 1st Birthday and the Anniversary of My Survival

A year has gone by right before my eyes. Thursday, July 28, 2011, marks the one year anniversary since the birth of my little Ella where I died for 10 minutes and came back to life a changed person.  I’m not sure how to feel this week. It’s bitter-sweet. On one hand, I am almost […]

My Birthday Wish

The picture to the left was me this time one year ago, happy as can be with my son and with my sweet Ella on her way, just one and a half months before my life was turned upside-down. Each holiday or special occasion that has come and gone since the day I died is special. […]
