I am Jennifer. I am the mother of three children. I am a person who has experienced great tragedy. I am raising a son who has cerebral palsy… a son who was once healthy.
I am living my choice… to see the abundance around me despite what I have experienced. Everyday, I look for the beauty and the blessings that my son has come here to teach… even though he cannot speak, he is a powerful guide. I treasure the beauty of this life… this gift that we’ve all chosen.
I love community. I love friendship. I love the people in my life, and welcome those destined for my life. I love creativity. and moments. and stillness. I love observing the beauty of people and creation.
Health is extremely important to us. It makes me feel good to fuel our body with abundant nutrition. I tube feed my son with home blended tube feeding recipes that I create.
One of the first lessons that Karsten taught me is that labels have nothing to do with the emotion and the energy behind them. Jennifer. Jenny. Jen. Mommy… he doesn’t know my name. Or that, if he could… he would call me mom.
What he knows is love. How I make him feel. Happiness when I walk into the room. Laughter when I’m silly. Comfort when I take away his pain.
So, without all of the labels that define me…I am me. Just like you. A person, living life, seeking connection, and making sense of it all.
