After losing our son and having surgery, I lost money, faith, relationships and even the desire to eat (but still didn’t lose any weight). After channeling Phil Collins (“I don’t care anymore”), I threw in the towel.

My family and I decided to reset our whole lifestyle. We ate together again, we listened to comics, medicated ourselves with laughter and we began to be considerate of each other. We would hug each other, we would hug our beloveds and we took a moment to talk to God.

Speak kind words. Everyone you meet is fighting a daunting battle. Never give up on loved ones. Breathe. And always know that you are loved, you are beautiful and you are priceless.
