in super duper excitement and anticipation of Group 10 – Couples!! happening on Sunday, I’m reblogging one from Group 9 – Moms & Daughters. And, ohmygoodnessyes, I will be finishing the blogs from Group 9. I still have seven awesome women whose stories you need to hear. I haven’t done it yet because, 1) I’m the most terrible procrastinator, 2) I procrastinate even more when I’m scared I’m not going to be able to do someone’s story the justice it deserves, 3) I’m just damn busy. I WILL get to them, however. I WILL.
For now, enjoy this one again, ’cause it’s a good one…
(The introduction for each of these Group 9 blogs will be the same…if you’ve already read it, feel free to skip down to Caitie’s & Liz’s stories…if not, Melissa’s & Lily’s stories can be found here)
“When people tell you that raising kids is the hardest thing you’ll ever do, it’s an understatement.”
Those were words written in and spoken by Melissa, the first mom to share her story. Melissa had participated in Group 1 and was ready/nervous/frightened/determined to participate in this group, as she thought it would be beneficial to share the same honest and open experience with her daughter.
This project had been going on for a year and a half by the time this group took place back in June.
Every group is eye-opening, every group is relatable, every group has compelling stories that evoke much emotion.
This group was all of those things and more.
