I want to thank everyone who reached out. All the messages, texts, emails and calls of support after my last post were so deeply appreciated. Words fail me. Thank you all for your continued support.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by such an incredible community of support.
We got a surprise yesterday. It is a 4 day weekend for most military members and Matthew decided to drive home. It was very unexpected, but we are thrilled to get to see him.
I will be focusing on family time this weekend, and taking as much of a break from the computer as possible. I will still do “Friday Positivity” today so if you follow me on Facebook, drop by and share something good.
There will not be a regular update this coming Monday. The newsletter will return on July 12.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. 4th of July (and the whole idea of American patriotism) is complicated and fraught. Especially after the last few years. I hope you will find a way to make sense of the holiday that works for you.
I will see you back here in 10 days.
Thank y’all again for everything. I really do know the most amazing people.
Be well. And keep pounding the rock.
Enjoy your family and some chill time. Wonderful to have Matthew at home - plenty of kids would have just headed for the beach with friends. I think it's a testament to how much he loves you all and the welcoming, loving home you have created.
Enjoy your family time and much welcomed break.
