What a crazy season this has been! Can you believe it’s already over?
I can tell you personally that I came into this reunion wanting answers! Answers for all of the things that had been said about other people all season long that just didn't seem right! And for what reason? To hurt someone’s feelings? Tear apart a family? Ruin a business? I look around the world today, and I see so much hurt and destruction, and it makes me sad, but I look around our group, and I see the same thing! As women, we need to be more supportive of one another, encourage one another and lift each other up, not dig up dirt to try and tear each other down. We are all on this journey together and within our group, we need to be more supportive. We should cheer each other on and share a message of love, not because we are on a show together, but because we’re strong women and that’s what women should do!
Watching this past season, I think we can all agree that we’ve said or done things that we aren’t proud of, and I want to see us do better! With change comes growth, and I think leaving the reunion, we all saw a place where we can change whether it be in a friendship or our families.
I feel like we’ve spent so much time this season talking about the negative on social media and our blogs, but I want to take a moment to speak on the positive. Each and every lady in our group possesses unique qualities that I think we can all admire and learn from.
Brandi, I love you beyond words! I admire the free spirit that you are, and I thank you for bringing out the child in me! You are a great mom, amazing wife and I am blessed to call you my best friend! There is no way I could do this without you!
Cary, I adore you! I am so thankful for the laughs that we share, the memories that we make, and the adventures that we will go on. Watching you with Zuri and seeing the love you and Mark share makes my heart smile! You’re a bad bitch, and I love you for that!
Kameron, you beat to your own drum, and I kind of love that about you. You had a dream, went for it, and turned that dream into a reality! That is such an amazing accomplishment and you should be so incredibly proud. Thank you for stepping on this journey with us!
D’Andra, I admire your incredible business sense and the growth that we have seen from you this season. Sharing personal family struggles with the world is tough, but thank you for sharing the raw and real trials of being a stepmom. You’re incredibly funny, and I had one of the best nights with you in Mexico!
LeeAnne, we have our differences, but putting those aside, I know there is a girl inside of there that just wants to be loved. Even though you had a hard life, you are open to change, and I hope that at the end of the journey, you find peace and we can build a bridge of hope for the future.
Lastly, thank YOU all for coming along on this journey with us. I know I sound like a broken record, but I absolutely could not do without the support and encouragement from my online friends. There are days that I wonder what in the world I am doing on this show, but it’s because of your love and encouragement that we do what we do. I am forever grateful for the love and kindness you show me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
