I have been combing my mind, heart and soul trying to find the answer to one of my burning questions.  Why have I had the ability to heal in such a positive way.  I yearn to know the answer to this question, I want to help other woman heal.  What “tools” was I given along the way, who gave them to me?  I ponder this so often and I believe that I was finally given an answer that I can trust and relay on.  It is simply, Love.  

I named my blog Love Protects, because I strongly believe that Love IS what protected my daughter on December 2 and also what protected me.  But it goes much deeper, to the core of who I am, and it wasn’t until now that I realized how I have healed.

I couldn’t stand my parents when I was growing up, as most teenagers.  But I knew without question that they loved me.  The way I love my daughters.  Love is even too loose a word; I love chocolate, I love campfires, I love the smell of spring, but the love I am talking about fills up the body and the soul so completely and perfectly.  It is what allowed my parents to stand by me in my worst moments as a kid, what drove my instincts to protect Luna, and what gave me strength to heal in the most positive and healthy way.   I often tell others that the outcome to that horrible day would have been much different if Luna was not around.  I can tell you that I certainly would not have had the ability to save myself or to sit here and write about it.  

 I can tell you first hand that love does protect, love does heal and it does endure.  I thank my parents for giving me the strongest most powerful tool of all – LOVE.Luna bird2

    Luna is your Angel. I cannot tell you how many times I have thought to myself, ” if only Luna wasn’t there”. As a mother you cannot imagine enduring something like this with your child. Now I think to myself ” What would have happened if Luna wasn’t there? Love for Luna saved them both”.
