Mackenzie

I was 7 months pregnant with my first child, and in my very last semester of college. I was so excited about this phase of life. It was at this time when my mom passed away after a 6 year battle with cancer. My world was turned upside down at a time when I was supposed to be on top of everything. I had to get ready for a baby. I had to graduate. I was scared to grieve fully because I didn't know how that would effect my unborn baby. I wanted to break down and run out of every class, but I had to finish. Nearly 2 years later and I still break down because I miss her. And because my kid will never know her in this life. I'll never be able to hug her. It's all still a lot. But I choose positivity and I choose perspective, and that has changed everything...
