I’m not sure what to write today…

All I know is that I am grateful for so many things.  I am grateful for Milan.  She’s been an extra good girl lately and always making me smile and laugh.  Kids are so smart and they sense when something is wrong.  She told me I was her best friend yesterday and today and that she loves me more than the whole wide world.  That is all I need.

I’m grateful for my mom and sisters who have been my rock throughout all of this darkness.  I’m grateful for my close friends who I can confide in and there’s no judgement.  I’m grateful for Milan’s grandparents that have been nothing short of amazing.  I’m grateful that I have this blog and the community of women who have reached out to me to share their stories of pain and offered their support.  It literally has brought me to tears all the messages and comments I’ve received.  What I am going through is indescribable, extremely private and very personal.  I’m not ready to share my story yet and I may not ever share it publicly.  If it only affected me, that would be one thing but unfortunately it affects Milan as well.  So please understand that it’s not because I don’t want to share, it’s because I can’t.  Maybe some day I will have the courage to do so but for now, I will continue to update you on how I’m coping (not easy for me to do).  Thank you for allowing me to share my life even the not so pretty parts.  Thank you for supporting me, my blog and showing so much love for Milan.  She is really the only reason I’m able to continue moving forward.  Love you guys so much.

Having experienced great personal heartbreak, I would never wish it upon anyone; that being said I would not be the person that I am now, having never experienced that heartbreak. It’s true what they say that God never never gives us anything that we can’t handle. May His grace and love keep you strong. You are a beautiful loving dynamic and blessed woman.

  8. I love your sharing with us. Don’t be afraid to seek professional help as you never have to struggle alone. Xo

  9. I will continue to support you and your blog. Women need to support each other in their time of pain and suffering. I pray that you get the help you need to feel that you’re going to be ok. Family and friends are the best support.

  10. I’m not even petite, but I enjoy your style! Know that you have helped so many of us look our best which helps us relax and be our best. Thank you.

  11. I’ve been following your blog for over a year and haven’t responded to one of your posts yet. 2018 was the most difficult year of my life for I suspect very similar reasons (I noticed you are missing some jewelry as I am too). Hang in there! We are both strong and risilent women. You will get through this rough patch and come out stronger for it. I wouldn’t have been able to pull through without my girlfriends. They are the best! I know we don’t know each other personally. I used to live in Newport Beach and know how difficult it can be there socially as an Asian woman. Please feel free to reach out if you need anyone not in your circle for support. I’m happy to help. Best wishes to you and Milan. I know you will pull through this rough patch together and stronger!

  12. Dear Annie, I’ve been reading your blog for many years and this is my first post. You are stronger than you know and an amazing role model of a strong woman for your precious daughter. Thank you for your post and for sharing. I am sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!

  13. Annie, I just read your blog and tears began to run down my face. I pray for strength, peace and comfort during this difficult time of healing. Know that God knows are needs, pains and our hearts so may his hands be over your entire family. Please know that you are not alone and that your readers and your angels are here to comfort you.🙏🏽💕
