PT 1 of 2 Thanks to my good friend Ashley and the inspiring Sandy, Joel Aslanian and Team Maggienificent I was excited to get up early, register for and run Nordstrom’s Beat the Bridge 8k to benefit Type 1 Diabetes. I NEVER could have dreamt up the unforgettable experience the run provided me....this may be my longest post ever but it was THAT great of a day! It is great to be surrounded by enthusiastic individuals at the start of a fundraising run. Ashley and I took off and I was enjoying the beauty of the day and pushing myself to run at a good clip/stick w/ her:). About a 2 miles, we passed a man in a racing wheel chair stopped in the middle of all the runners. I looked back & realized he was trying to fix something wrong w his chair so I ran back to see if I could offer any help. Another man, Chris from Lake Stevens did the same thing, almost simultaneously, and we worked together w/ Hassan (the wheel chair racer) to get the chair mobile again. The 2 of us ended up running w/Hassan, clearing way for him to pass, walking w/ him up the inclines as his 6 yr old, ill-fitted race chair was giving out on him and lifting him out of his chair when his leg started cramping. He was working so hard given the malfunctioning of his bike. He shared that he usually is with the leaders of runs and was disheartened and exhausted by his bike’s issues. I realized to help Hassan try and take his mind off the pain of the incline demands I could talk with him. I learned he drove up by himself from Portland to run this race for his 3rd yr, had lived in Washington St for a short time following 8 yrs in South Africa, having attended Univ of Johannesburg. I shared that I lived in Lesotho many yrs ago and loved 🇿🇦. The distance passed under or feet. As we neared the Stadium for the 1st time, he picked up speed on the down hill & I decided I would let them go...not kill myself trying to match that speed. As I saw him roll ahead I made a quick decision to cut my run short, take a short cut through Husky Stadium to the end where I could photograph Hassan finishing....continued in next post #believeLOVEunite

I will not stay silent. I am a proud working parent to 2 teenage boys and I am also proud of my decision 26 years ago that I chose to terminate my first pregnancy. 1 in 4 women have had an abortion and I am one among the millions. I am grateful to have had the support of the medical community and Washington State to exercise my choice to terminate my unplanned pregnancy. I will forever be grateful, not shameful. We. Must. Do. Better. . #believeLOVEunite @plannedparenthood@shoutyourabortion@thelindywest@abortionislove . . . .

Today I celebrated my birthday by having my boys play hookie and my husband drove us to where we were married 20 yrs ago. We had not been back and we were all amazed by the beauty we found. “The Old Winery” burned down the year after we were married and the land is now part of Snoqualmie Point Park, a part of the Mountains to Sound Greenway system. While I explored with the loves that came into my life because of this setting, I left a little love behind. Grateful for today and everyday. We live in a beautiful art of the 🌎 and I hope to return in another 20 years to discover and celebrate more growth in the land and in my life. ❤️ #believeLOVEunite . . . . .

Mother’sDay 2019 may be my be my most memorable ever and I did not “hide” a rock out in the world but shared it paired w/ flowers from incredible women in the market, with an amazing woman and mother whose day/month/year is one of her most challenging. I want to share the story behind this most memorable moment of MD2019. In 2012, I met Xee with her 2 young girls as we all shared a lazy Susan table for dim sum in the ID. I learned Xee was born in Laos and arrived in Seattle at the age of 8 as a refugee. She was vivacious and kind & I asked her if she would be open to being my Laotian subject for a project @worldinmybackyard I was starting. She agreed & I spent a few hours with her in her home learning about her amazing life & family (http://worldinmybackyard.org/laos1/). Last week she called me regarding a new dream she is working on. I was thrilled to reconnect and met her in the market on Mother’s Day at her family’s flower stall. Getting to meet her beautiful mother who just turned 70 and works 14-16 hrs/day 6 days/wk to grow, harvest, transport and sell the famous @pikeplacepublicmarket flowers was such an honor. And to get to photograph the Xee with her on Mother’s Day. What a gift Xee gave me! AND the beautiful bouquet of tulips she handed me as I left...as much as I wanted to keep their beauty in y home, I knew they were meant to be passed forward to my friend. Knocking on her door with a simple rock in my hand & the brightness of the flowers lifted my heart even more & my friend was overcome with emotion...it is so hard to be a mom. We are all strong women, with hearts filled with love & emotions for our children. No one mother’s life is easier or more difficult in the course of a life time...the struggle is real & we cannot protect ourselves from the pain we will experience as we walk through the life of motherhood. We must remember to celebrate the wonderful moments, reach out in the many difficult ones & support each other through them all. I share a few pictures of Xee in her youth & the one I took before I had the good fortune to interview her in 2012. May we all see the beauty & suffering around us today & every day, celebrate & lift each other up
