Don’t Quit…never!

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success…

Mom life after TBI

Remember This

One of the purposes I started this blog was to share my tips and tricks as to how I navigate life post-TBI as a Mom.  We never planned on having children this young (and now we have three!), but after my accident, we started to reevaluate our “plan” and realized that because of my health, if I wanted to successfully carry babies full term, maybe we should have children sooner rather than later.  There wasn’t any indication that I would have difficulty getting pregnant or carrying a baby full term, but given my numerous health conditions, we were concerned.  I was also worried that my neck/back/shoulder/hip injuries would prevent me from having an active pregnancy and would cause me to have a lot of physical pain as I progressed.

During my first pregnancy,  I experienced something I hadn’t felt in years- my headaches nearly disappeared and I was thrilled.  What…

“I can’t do much about all the suffering in the world, but all I can do is perhaps add a little touch of creativity, hope, ‘beauty and magic’, that I hope may uplift and encourage others…even if it’s just ONE person.
