Oh my goodness friends, I didn’t realize it has been TEN DAYS since I last posted!
I am not even certain I can account for all of those days!
It certainly hasn’t been for lack of things to write about.
I know that I have been busier than a 1 legged man in a butt kicking competition! (Is that still funny??)
If you didn’t know, I am getting ready to publish my first book: Sunshine After the Storm: A Survival Guide for the Grieving Mother.
This book is going to be INCREDIBLE folks. It is me and 29 other grieving mothers who have written our stories, our best advice, our encouragement, and our best survival tips for grieving mothers. I think it will also be an excellent tip for friends and family members who are better trying to understand the emotions of a loved one.
The book features some of my favorite bloggers, to include Jessica at Four Plus an Angel, Sheila Quirke from Mary Tyler Mom, Anna Donaldson from An Inch of Gray, and Jennie from A Lady in France. And oh so many more! I have developed a new love for a whole list of writers/bloggers through this project. Check out the whole list at Sunshine After the Storm.
I have been thinking about this for awhile, but recently, as my blog has become more of a lifestyle/mommy blog, I do not want the important TTTS message to get lost in the mix. Additionally, if you’ve come to my blog because you have been diagnosed with TTTS and are seeking support and information, I don’t want the first few posts you see to be about my latest 10K, a great YA book to read, or Pinterest Worthy posts. Not that those aren’t wonderful, but I want TTTS to be the sole purpose. So I have my new page Fight TTTS.
I am still building it, and my plan is to resume TTTS Tuesdays. I will post a blurb on this page and link to the other page so that I still bring awareness here as well. I hope you’ll check it out. I have put a lot of work into it, but there is still so much to be done! And if you follow my blog only for TTTS information, please be sure to subscribe to that blog!
And finally, I am still plugging away on my fiction novel… currently titled “The Boys I Left in Paris.” But I am rethinking the title… the book is getting good y’all. Can’t wait to share more!
So, for those of you who have continued to check back in to make sure I’m alive, thank you so much! I apologize that I have not been making the rounds. I have missed you all. But life is gonna be crazy for a little while longer!
Tomorrow I am off to our nation’s capital to participate in a March of Dimes Advocacy Conference and go lobby on the hill for our babies!
Saturday, we will finally bury our sweet Kathryn.
And Sunday, we’re having a reception to unveil the new bench in her honor, in the corner of the Henry Michael Powell Children’s Memorial Garden that we have adopted, appropriately named “Kathryn’s Corner” and it is shaped like a butterfly! We are trying to raise $15,000 to put in the garden beds and the arbors. Should you feel like helping, you can contribute here.
I told you it’s been busy!
What have you been up to lately??
