She held off on discussing it because of the new people (me and 2 other women), but felt that she should have…so the discussion and memories of kristen began..she was 34..
listening to this made me want to run out of the room screaming and crying..but somehow i held it together..then another women in the group..one of the two women who i consider “the rocks” becuase they have been doing this for 8 and 9 years started to cry because she had realized the other day that they had lost 6 women in a year and a half out of the group..

6 WOMEN..as i sit in the room with about 7 women..
i can’t tell you how difficult this is to hear..how difficult this is to process..
i cried a million times this weekend..

I remain constantly amazed at the honesty and strength of us all…I have grown to believe that NOTHING is impossible to handle with good girlfriends who band together and lean on each other. I love you, Jen!
