A few years ago, this family lost their mom to cancer. And now, we have become a new family and for the first time ever, I am mom. My friend gave me a "Fearless" key for Christmas this year - which I wear on the days when I want to rip my hair out, or feel the genuine pain of transition and adjustment. Taking on three kids isn't easy, but it's worth it.
Because love wins. Life isn't always perfect. It doesn't always go how we think it should. But our story is one of redemption and love, and it's imperfectly perfect. I adore my necklace and the hopeful reminder I feel when I put it on.
