We are down but not out

The sisters are going through some stuff and in supporting one another this blog has become slightly neglected. Tough. We take care of each other first.
Please send love. There has recently been a lot of loss. We are working on holding on to the good stuff and as I said, each other.
Soon we hope to be back to regular posts about our families, White Friday, planning a wedding, and even welcoming a baby to one of our girls!
I am going to close this by reminding you that suicide is a choice but not a good one. It is permanent and you leave behind a lot of emotional wreckage. Please seek help first. Let this rough time be a semi colon not a period.
Be kind.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Be fierce.
Be authentic.

Hi, it's Eri.  I just wanted to add a quick note to what Carrie already said so beautifully.  First of all, thanks for staying with us.  The sisters who aren't going through a tough time are doing our darndest to hang tight to the sisters who are.  And yes, we really consider each other sisters, a nuclear family.  You don't have to be blood to be family.  Secondly, I just want to add the phone # and link to the national suicide hotline:   1-800-273-8255.  The National Suicide Prevention Hotline.  Please, please, please DO NOT make a final decision like suicide.  There is help.  There is hope.  Please reach out to someone.  Finally, I just want to second Carrie BoBeary's request for love and prayers.  These girls mean the world to me and their pain is all of our pain.
