I have to say that I am glad we are almost done with May. For those who know our story or who have followed along, May is a month filled with triggers and difficult anniversaries. May was the month I miscarried not once, but twice with Sweet Pea, when I was hospitalized while pregnant with Colette, and when Colette died.
But, even in the midst of all that, it is also the month in which Colette was born and when she lived her short life. As difficult as all these days and triggers are, I like to think about my dear daughter, her presence and time here on the planet, the inspiration she has given me and others, and the impact she has had on so many families.
Additionally, our silent auction has been hopping! We have incredible items available and from May 23 through May 31, all bids made (regardless of whether they won or not) are being matched up to a total of $5,023. Donations are also being matched under the same guidelines. We’re already over $4,000 toward the match and would love to hit the full $5,023 before the month ends!
Hope everyone has a peaceful, relaxing, fun long Memorial Day weekend!
