I've been missing blogging (I know I posted, but it was short and not very interesting...)
Anyway, I was all set to hop on, after my absence( didn't notice, did you?) and bitch and moan about my jobs and my headache and my poor boy biting his tongue all up after the dentist and feeling like a bad mom and said boy biting someone at school...and on and on... (ad nausium)
I did, however, take a moment to gaze at my reader, as I have been missing you-all too - and found that there was, once again, sad news from one of our own.
Madeline Alice Spoor died today. She was 17 months old. I can't link you to her mama's website...it has crashed from all the visits from well-wishers.
My heart just hurts for this family. I can't imagine - I don't want to imagine...
She had such an infectious smile, a beautiful bright smile full of love and light.
There no words to ease the pain of losing a child, but maybe we can help lighten their load, a tiny bit with our support and love.
So, instead of babbling on, or reading all the posts I have missed, I'm going to go play with my boy...and give him an extra hug or seven...
see you all tomorrow.
PS - For those of you interested, the Spohrs have requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in Madeline’s name to the March of Dimes.
Or you can make a paypal donation here firstname.lastname@example.org to help the family with the services...go hug someone you love...
