"I would paddle out on to the lake at night.⠀ I would look up at the stars and wonder. ⠀
I wondered about many things in life. ⠀
Relationships, dreams, the day, my youth and then my mind would walk the familiar path back to wondering about you. ⠀
Missing you, waiting for a shooting star and imagining that might be where you are."⠀

Reflecting on the amazing experience of this past Sunday and hosting the Expecting Sunshine Documentary at the Plaza Theatre in Calgary.
It was moving to see the film again and feel the emotions of my own experience while having some of my family next to me this time. It meant a lot to share that moment with them. If I had my wish, everyone I know or have ever met will see this film one day.
There is this incredible feeling of deep connection when you watch and listen to the stories of the families in this film and feel a constant reflection of yourself.
The discussion that followed has a special place in my heart. To share the stage with @alexismariechute and see so many inspiring bereaved families in the audience was a blessing. The conversation was honest, raw, vulnerable, and sometimes even funny. I didn't anticipate discussing relationships or faith, but we did and in such a safe and loving way.
The feedback thus far has been so positive and we plan to do more with the community on this so stay tuned. We purchased our educational copy!
A huge shout out to @alexismariechute , Aaron Chute, Brook, @ingrid.bart.howard , @ashphow30 , @katereghenas, and all of the incredible partners we had out at the event. You continue to move mountains in this space. Please scroll through the photos and check them out if they are new to you.

"I am so honored to share with you my first meditation of 2019. As some of you may have seen in previous posts, my path has taken a new turn as we have welcomed our most precious blessing, our baby girl, Amalia, into our family. I am practicing welcoming all emotions as I come to know her and parent on this side of life. As I have shared before, my path to Amalia has been difficult as she is our fifth pregnancy and first child. Today I sit in mediation, in gratitude, with the intention of honoring the children smiling over us from up above, the beloved children we share our lives with, and the precious and innocent children residing within each of us.⠀
⠀ I am forever thankful for your support and the heart-filled sharing in this community. It has helped me make my way to Amalia."⠀
