This is a big day. My guest post, What We Have Left: A Letter, is live at Momastery.

It’s a break out the kazoos, call a babysitter, and uncork the champagne!!! kind of day. (Or it would be if I had kazoos, or children, or champagne on hand … )

What We Have Left, friendsMomastery, created by Glennon Melton, “is where we practice living bigger, bolder, and truer on this earth. Where we remember what we already know: We can do hard things, love wins, and we belong to each other.”

How do Momastery readers (“Monkees”) do this? Through sharing stories, telling truths, and helping others. A recent Momastery Love Flash Mob raised over $120,000 for families in need … in 10 hours.

When I tried to explain this whole guest post on Momastery to my Mom, I said, “You play tennis; you have been playing for years, because you love it.

One day, you walk out onto your humble, everyday court, and Martina Navratilova walks over and says, “Hi! I got your invitation, and I saw you play. I love your style. Want to rally?”

After which you hyperventilate, because things like that don’t happen in real life … except when they do. G (aka Martina), thank you for inviting me to be a part of the beautiful community you’ve created.

Writing this post broke my heart, and made me whole.

It’s hard to share it, because it’s so personal, and it’s easy to share it, because it’s not about me. The post is about a beautiful friend I was privileged to know and will always, always miss.
