Copy of 2018 Over and Out

2018. Where do I even begin. I am over you. But. Because of you, I sit here and reminisce...write...reflect...cry...laugh...think...sing...pray. I sit in silence, with my thoughts. I sit in silence with disbelief...still...one year later.

January 8, 2018 I got the call...THAT call..."Ms. Mogensen, your son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, we will want to get your other son in to be tested also, we will call back to schedule that, great, have a nice day."


January 8th, 2018...I hate you.


THIS year, THAT day, THAT call, THAT moment was the beginning of the downhill spiral our little life would begin...Happy New Year to us.


Fast forward to March 2018, I got another call....THAT call..."Ms. Mogensen, your other son ALSO has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.


NO WORDS.

In that moment, the surprising gift of our sweet little girl Gracelyn became ever so clear.


Hello friends! {Happy} New Year! I am happy you are here, I am grateful for your support, love and kindness. I am sure you all know by now that both of our sweet little boys, Mason and Jax, have been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscualar Dystorphy. To say that, is like a spear right thru the center of my heart....yet its our new normal and after many months of crying, praying, begging God to change it, our new reality is Duchenne. So here I sit, reminiscing, writing, reflecting, crying, laughing, thinking, singing, and praying. I sit here to bring you closer to our hearts, on our journey, thru our new normal. I have spent countless hours trying to figure out what God is wanting me to do with all of this and after many days, weeks and months of trying to figure out some GRAND purpose for my life, He has made it abundantly clear that my only purpose is to be faithful, to help my family be faithful, and to help others be faithful...despite our tragedies.


So my friends, here I am and here we are...together...for better or worse. I hope this website, this blog, and my authenticity thru this all can bridge our hearts, build our faith and bring us closer to one another. I hope our journey with this horrible disease, will help you on whatever journey you find yourself on.


2018 was hard, and to be honest I am sure 2019 will only be harder...but I am certain, our faith can only get stronger if we lean on, love and support one another.


"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" -2 Corinthians 5:17


Happy New Year and Happy New Beginning


*Disclaimer: Not all my posts are going to be pretty, life is hard, I am not perfect, but I am real and in order to truly be faithful, you have to be authentic....so I wont sugar coat things, the reality is just that and in order to fulfill my purpose, reality is where I live and reality is what I will share. With LOVE.*


Over and Out.
