Take care of yourself first. Maintaining your health and well-being allows you to better take care of the family. Allow others to step in and help.
“[My son and I] have had many tears over the years, but the closeness we share is priceless... He continues to be my inspiration, my courage, and my faith to live on and [reminds me] that life can be found after loss... Our journey is the glue that binds our love stronger than steel and what propels us to love and take care of each other forever.”—
