My name is Kari and I definitely needed this class. 2019 was a major year of heartache and loss for me and will be the worst year of my life. My amazing mother lost her valiant 4-year battle with stage 4 uterine cancer in March of 2019. On my birthday 4/11 my father underwent an overdue quintuple bypass surgery, during which he had several massive strokes that ended up taking his life on Fathers Day 2019. On April 30, 2019 I suffered a stroke of my own and ended up a few doors down from my Dad in the ICU for a while. The stroke affected my right/dominant side, so I'm sorry for the sloppiness below. I am well down the road of recovery now, but it has been a tough road without my parents. I am beyond blessed to have an amazing and supportive husband who helps me find a new normal every day. This class has helped me process 2019 and start looking forward to the rest of 2020.
