❄ Love it or Live it…either way its always Embraced!❄
💙As Winter tightens it’s grip with the cooler temperatures and early darkness, my nights grow quieter with more time to think and less time to do!💙
💐Happy Mother’s Day👑
✨Wishing all the MOMs out there the Happiest of Moments on this very Special day! 👑
Many meanings to a “Mother.” A person who gives birth👣 is a mother. A person who raises a child 👶 is mother. A person who loves and cares for a child is a mother…Remember to wish those a Very Special Day with a smile, a flower, a hug, or a simple call or message!❤
Mother’s LOVE unconditionally places the needs of her children above her own, on a personal level, and not only with words, but also with actions. The LOVE of your child/children back is rewarding, humbling, and heartwarming tenfold 😘 ❤
This morning while stretching my son sat by me with a ✒pen, piece of paper📄, and some beautiful flowers💐! Gave me the BIGGEST Hug and Kiss😘, said 🌞G'morn, then asked what 🔠letters spell 'Happy Mothers Day'? 📝When he was finished he signed his beautiful artwork, laid the note with flowers 〰PERFECTLY〰 on the pillow next to me! This picture will always hold with it that very memory:
Before leaving my room he asks, “Mom, on this day can we go outside to sleigh…wait…but, i thought it was Summer?” 😉
A Mother hold their children’s hands for a short while, but hold their hearts forever!💕

Ashley Weber (Myself) I have overcame many many challenges in my 30 yrs of life…♿paralyzed in a car accident at 18, just after Graduating High School in 2002🎓 & attending my 2nd year of college, I catastrophically broke my neck (C1, C4, C5, & exploded C6). A 16 hour anterior & posterior NECK surgery which involved removing bone from my hip to create a NEW C6 vertebrae, then fusing my Spine with titanium plates & screws from C3 to T1. I had Hyper-calciumia twice, feeding tube, gall bladder & appendics removed. Was hooked up to a breathing machine, 💉IVs, and drownding in pharma drugs💊… I watched the 😷Drs, nurses, and staff line up chairs alongside the window of my hospital room as if they were already saying their “goodbyes”… I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t even move! All I was left with were my own thoughts! 💬
Spending 145 days in the hospital, ambulance ride🚑 to the Emergency Room (place of employment at time), 🚁Flight for Life to St. Anthony’s (where i spent 2 weeks in ICU), then transferred to Craig Hospital🏩 i was FINALLY released the end of April! 🎅Christmas, 🎉New Year’s, 💘Valentine’s, & My 🎈19th Birthday were ALL celebrated surrounded by the hospital staff who became a part of my extended family! My parent’s separated and in May after returning home, a week later I was back in the hopital because of a blood clot in my right lung…treated & released… again a week later another blood clot, but this time in my left lung. Lucky enough to have had 2 BLOOD CLOTS pass through my HEART without it skippjng a beat I immediately had surgery for a “Greenfield Filter”, which is placed in the inferior vena cava to prevent any fatal pulmonary embolisms from hopefully ever entering my heart again… this all happened in only 6 months!
After May 2003 i was released from the hospital and here is where MY reality REALLY set in…
👍And that’s how my life changed from “Standing” …to “Sitting” until…I REALIZED … the Life you Live, is the Life you CREATE so make things SIMPLE & FOLLOW your HEART! My gut feels like a BIG knot at times, but its NEVER lead me to a DEAD END!… not yet anyway 😉 💛 PLEASE VOTE & SHARE 💛
