On The Mat With Mari: Receiving The Worst News Of My Life...

This blog chronicles my healthy living journey but most importantly it chronicles my life. If you have joined me since the beginning or if you recently stumbled across my site, you may have noticed that I am extremely close with my niece, Hailey whom most of you know as Homefries. She has grown up on this blog...

Monday began just as any other day, I picked up my camera and decided to do a FDOE on my vlog. Around 2:40, my niece sent a message in our group chat "I left" (school) and my sister replied "ok mama...be careful" and 20 minutes later my sister received a call from an EMT...my niece was hit by a car. She immediately called me and instinctively I facetimed my niece not knowing if she would answer, she did. The minute that I saw her, my heart broke. She was crying uncontrollably and she kept wailing "I looked both ways...I looked both ways"

They live in New Jersey now, so my mom and I rushed over there...that was the longest car ride of my life.

I am so grateful that she is back home recovering from her injuries and I just want her to heal quickly; physically & emotionally. I pray that this doesn't crush her spirit and she continues to bring her light into this world because she is meant to shine.
 This past Thanksgiving...

I speak more of the incident on this week's vlog as well as participating in the Mindful Eating Project

Namaste...
