Good morning, Trench Sisters!
It is hard to believe that summer is almost upon us! My girls and I are in our last few weeks of school and I'm ready for sleeping in, beach time and biking. I hope you have some wonderful summer plans and will share with the community on our Facebook page.
MAY STORIES SERIES
Our May series began with Jess sharing about her dear supportive friend and continues this week with Missy sharing her extraordinary woman story. However, after Missy shares this week, our series will be concluded. Truly my fault for not promoting this special series more and requesting for more stories. My apologies that my own brain has been fried and my writing tank as come up dry.
If you watched my last Facebook Live, I hinted at sharing a new summer plan with you. This summer will be the first summer that my girls will have me home as a full time mom. I've decided to honor that by taking the summer off of SFTT to spend with them. I will be re-posting past content and will continue to leave the website and social media up. I truly would love if you would jump into our Facebook page and Facebook group with your thoughts, summer fun, trenches you are in. Amelia and I will be available to answer emails, comments and messages as they come in too. My goal is to spend the summer enjoying my girls while working on a new business plan for SFTT for the rest of 2018 and 2019. But don't worry I will still be around on our Facebook page and group sharing my own summer shenanigans.
Founder, Stories from the Trenches
This Thursday is Eli's 6th birthday and six years suddenly feels like a decade. This year's grief feels very different too. Heavy, weighty and torn come to mind. We are settled into our new life but I will always wonder what life should have, could have, would have been like. We have kept this month of grieving to ourselves instead of celebrating him with others. That is new for us too and I have no real concrete reason other than it feels like keeping him closer (which even typing it makes no sense). If you are a pray warrior, say a prayer for us as navigate this next grief season.
