Amber is new friend and TTTS Mom that sadly lost both of her boys. She does a pretty good job describing herself and her step-daughter Courtney in her introduction. I have “known” Amber since she her loss and I am thrilled that she has agreed to take the challenge… She is clearly a woman with A Lot of Muchness inside of her… I am so excited to see how this journey puts her back in touch with it…

Let’s meet Amber & Courtney!

Amber writes: Courtney is my step daughter (well will be August 6th) she lives with us full time. Last summer I lost my twin baby boys to TTTS. Courtneys little brothers. Since then we have just started to live the same day over and over and over again. I had forgotten how to laugh, how to have fun. My dreams and hopes were shattered, I began living life as though I was waiting for it to be over. I used to wake up in the morning and think what am I going to do today, but since the loss the question became, what do I have to do today? My muchness was gone. Then the past few days I thought I would give this a try. Wasn’t sure if 30 days was going to work for me or not. Wasnt sure what Muchness was. Seemed like more of a hassle then anything. But then after the first day, I realized KIDS are my muchness, and I still have one. The smile on her face. the hugs and kisses before bed, the laughter, everything. I may have lost my boys but Courtney and I are very much alive. So for her andΒ  for meΒ  we are going to get our Muchness back. Maybe she never lost hers but I’m going to make sure she never does! Together we can and WILL do this. So from today on we are going to do something together. Something that says MUCHNESS to both of us!

Here’s an awesome pic of Amber and Courtney getting IN TOUCH WITH THE MUCH!!! (And colored sprinkles…. πŸ™‚ )

Love & Muchness, Tova

    Yay Amber, welcome to the challenge! It’s so good to put a face to the names. I really hope you find your muchness. So many times I’ve wanted to reach through the computer and hug you. Love the muchy picture!

    Welcome Amber and Courtney! Good for you Amber for pulling yourself up by the bootstraps for both you and Courtney! That is a beautiful gift you are giving her and yourself. I finished the challenge about 2 weeks ago and can honestly say it’s worth every second! I actually miss it quite a bit and have had a few friends who followed mine tell me they miss reading it each day!

    Enjoy the ride and best of luck!!

    Amber, Im so excited that you are doing this. You are a person I really care about and I can’t wait to see how this helps you. I’m on Day 9 (still thinking of my picture for the day today πŸ˜› haha) But in one week I have rebuilt some relationships that I had before TTTS, opened up to some “normal” people and have learned how to better time manage my TTTS life and my regular life. I’m finding more time to be happy and to care about life instead of live it like a robot. I look forward to posting with you on Tova’s muchiest site ever πŸ˜› haha …

    Thanks everyone. Courtney and I are so excited! Had so many people ask me today what the hell Muchness was. Courtney has told everyone in school and everyone she has seen outside of school. I haven’t seen her this happy about something in a long time. She sits with me as I type and post pictures. She gets so excited! And now day one begins
