On never giving up, chasing that dream and staying with it no matter what!
“I was rubbing your head, touching your hair. While I was watching you, I started crying. I felt so much guilt about what I had done to us with this move to NYC. Was I being selfish? I took you away from the life you knew. I started to doubt myself. I doubted my ability and questioned what I was doing here. This was just too hard and now you were sick and it was my fault. I didn’t think I could do it. I was alone. You had never seen me cry like that before. I just looked at you and said, “Baby do you wanna go back to Florida? Do you wanna just leave NYC and go back to our life? This is just too hard! You could have your pool again and go swimming all the time. You would have your abuelo and abuela, your Tia Josie, Tia Fabiana and Tio Fabin… do you wanna just go home?” You just looked up at me with those beautiful eyes and said, “NO MOMMY!!! This is your dream. I don’t want to leave. You came here to be a writer. You can do this!” ~ Courtney, thank you for reminding me everyday of how proud you are of me.”
