Pray

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I wrote about Loss? Remember how I said I pray it never happens to any of you? Well, it has. Jessica over at Go Blog Yourself lost her darling daughter, Tuesday, yesterday. My heart is absolutely broken for this family.

I can't get them off my mind. I remember all too well the immediate time after Emma's death. No parent should EVER have to bury their child. EVER. It is not fair. Like I said, I am heart broken for them. Go read this great post by Lisa for this family. I'm not the only one who is heart broken.

My dear friend, Heather -- The Extraordinary Ordinary -- is doing something amazing. For every comment on this post, she and her family will donate $1 to Tuesday's family. Let me tell you something, that is amazing. It is expensive to bury a child, plus they have medical bills also. So, go leave a comment. Or, you can donate to this family here or here.

We have come together in the past to help other families. We will do it again. That is what is so amazing about the Blog Family. Yeah, it's not a community, we are a family.

Please pray for this amazing family. Pray for Tuesday's brothers and twin sister. Pray for her parents. Pray for comfort, peace and that angels will bear them up during this time.

Hug your kids a lot tighter today. Be kinder and gentler and more loving today. Know that there are parents today who would give anything to have one more minute with their baby girl.

Mostly though, pray.

Thank you, friend. Thank you for linking. You're right, most importantly, this lovely family needs prayer. I did close the comments now, but I'm so happy to have had such a response. Such a beautiful internet :) Thank you.
