I have to take time out to say thank you to all of you.
This last media whirlwind week of my life has been intense, humbling, and emotional to say the least. Your support, encouragement, comments, likes, retweets, and random "you go girl!" messages are what have gotten me by.
Encouragement and support has come from far and wide.
A day after my New York Times Op-Ed was published I was reading some of the feedback-that has been far more positive than negative- sat back and I allowed myself to fully become present in the moment.
As I sat there thinking about everything I was literally moved to tears. I have never felt so humbled and uplifted at the same time in my life. I sat there and cried-and fight tears as I write this-because never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I would be where, who, and what I am today.
I am who I am today because of my sisters. They are and will always be the most important team of women I could have never asked for. They are the ones that told me when I was 15 and a mother that I need to become my best advocate, it would take years before I actually realized what they meant but today I do.
I apologize for such a brief post, my brain is still over the place but I really wanted to take time out to thank you. You, your encouragement, your kind words, your feedback is amazingly overwhelming to me. I hope that I can provide you with as much love as you have shown me.
