Of Natalie, RIchie says: This one is legit. ⁣Strong. ⁣When I met @natalienortonshe had been on a university dance scholarship, certified instructor in yoga, Tai Chi & palates + had just gotten back from volunteering at an orphanage in Ecuador.⁣⁣⁣⁣ She’s an emotional first responder. I remember when she came home late from picking up the kids, because she was comforting someone on the side of the road who had just accidentally killed someone in an accident. ⁣⁣This kind of thing isn’t unusual for Nat.⁣⁣⁣ She’s raised 7 children. 3 are still w/ us. 3 are in the world somewhere. 1 is in heaven. ⁣⁣⁣⁣Our firstborn came when Nat was only 21. Nat & I married young, so we’ve been together about as long as we grew up in our own childhood homes—almost 18 years. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
We’ve recycled cans to make ends meet. She won an Emmy for a documentary about life after loss. She’s been taken advantage of by idiots, but is NEVER a doormat. She’s an award winning, international bestselling author. ⁣⁣⁣⁣In all the ups & downs, Nat has given our kids more than love, compassion & caring...she’s given them her time. She’s given them her attention. She’s given them perspective. A perspective that guides them in strength & will guide the future generations as well. ⁣⁣Through challenges: autoimmune, death of her brother, death of our son, miscarriages, stroke, accidents, tragedies, navigating the tragic foster system, failed adoptions, & on & on, she’s given our kids bright hope. She’s given me bright hope (I should also be counted as a child—my kids are better at parenting me than I am at parenting them!) ⁣⁣⁣⁣
I tear as I think of her pouring love into the THOUSANDS of you who reach out to her EVERY DAY for advice on how to navigate your own lives. She takes every message seriously & spends her life helping you, while she helps me, while she helps the kids, while she helps as a first responder to any hardship around her.... all while she sits on her tippy toes, writing a book. ⁣⁣⁣
My dancer wife @natalienorton has mastered the art of living on her toes—always ready to spring to action—gracefully dancing through the good times, the grief times & the grit times.
