Bittersweet

Tonight I am heading to Cleveland with my good friend Kelly to pick up 2 more of my friends so that tomorrow morning we can head to Buffalo. I am so very happy to be seeing some of my bestest friends this weekend but so very sad for the reason that we are getting together.



Last fall my sweet friend Andrea lost her husband in an accident that sadly could have been prevented by his company. Now Andrea is raising her young kids without the love of her life. Believe it or not I have yet to meet Andrea even though I have known her for at least 5 years through my mommy board. Even though I have never met her, I love her dearly, and I have cried many tears for her, Matt and their babies.



This weekend about 20 girls from our mommy board are coming together to support Andrea in the first annual Run For Row 5k. In which I will be walking, not running thankyouverymuch. I have no doubt that we will laugh ourselves stupid and have fun being together again but on the flip side I also know there will probably be some tears as we support our friend who in the past 9 months has had more on her plate then anyone should. While we love being together....especially since it only happens a few times a year, I wish it was not because Matt died.



Andrea, I know you probably wont read this for awhile (although reading my blog should take priority over, ohhh, MOVING right?) but I am so happy to be able to come and support you this weekend. I just wish we were meeting under different circumstances. Hopefully the train wreck that is this group of girls will make you laugh as much as we can this weekend!



In case you missed my last weekend trip with my mommy board besties....you can read about it HERE. I think it is a good thing that God did not allow us all to live in the same place.

Cammie, what a great thing to be doing for a friend. Amazing how we can become friends with other women over the computer without ever meeting IRL. Hope it's a good weekend, however bittersweet it is.

What a wonderful thing to do as a group, a supportive gesture that goes far beyond what you'll see this weekend. :) I hope that you have a great time and that Andrea is able to sit and laugh with you all, despite the circumstances. What a good friend you are! Happy Friday, Cammie.

How amazing..I love the support and philanthropy.

Very sad event though. I hope the weekend went as well as possible.

That is so neat that you are willing to travel all that way to support a blog friend you've never even met. That's the magic of the Internet isn't it?

Sparkette

Cammie that is great! Wow! To have women lie that together is just amazing. Good for you guys...thanks for sharing that!
