Milestone Day!

Today is a special day. A milestone. A milestone in my healing and a milestone in my company Teamotions.

Today we launched our Teamotions website:

Two and a half years ago I sat in a folding chair facing a tiny casket with my two babies inside it. I remember feeling so disoriented. It didn't feel real to me. The sun was out and a breeze was blowing inland. I could smell the ocean on the wind. I just sat there with their pictures in my hands frozen, staring, not thinking, not feeling. I didn't want to move. I was waiting to wake up from a really bad dream.

Eventually I did stand and walk away. I left my babies behind because I had to. But I made them a promise that I have kept and will continue to keep until the day I die.

I will never let them be forgotten.

Teamotions is their legacy. It is their mark on the world. Through Teamotions I can share their story with the world.

My girls only lived for a handful of days. With the exception of my closest family, a few friends, and some doctors, no one even met them. But the length of their lives does not reflect their value or impact. They matter to me and through Teamotions they matter to the world. It is my honor to honor them this way.

Let me know what you think of our website. I am quite proud of it. I know my girls would be proud of me.

Little Fish

My mother gave my son Dustin a little blue fish as a gift sometime last year. It is one of those beta fighting fish. Although it is beautiful, it lives a very solitary life. If you put other fish in the bowl, it will kill them immediately, so all alone it stays.

It lives in a glass vase on my kitchen windowsill right above the sink. When I wash dishes I stare at it, and I wash dishes often so I stare at it a lot.

To be honest, I find its solitary existence depressing. I feel bad for it swimming around in such a small space with no friends or relationships. Surely even fish get lonely right? I wonder if it is sad or bored every time I look at it. Does it long for a different life? Does it ever wonder if it was meant for more than this fish bowl existence?

It began to bother me so much that I brought my burden for this little fish to the Lord.

"Lord, you care for all the creatures of the land and sea. You created each one with a purpose. What is the purpose of this little fish?"

Weeks went by.

I just stared at the little fish day after day wondering.

And then I figured it out. Or rather, God told me. The little fish was not lonely or bored, it knew something and lived by it. Something I know but forget too easily.


Maybe its purpose was to remind me of that? I don't know. But it isn't the first time God used a fish.
