Holding my babies tighter

This is a year-old picture of my girls, but it always makes me smile, so I hope it does the same for you.

I’ll be holding my babies a little bit longer and a little bit tighter today after learning about Maddie Spohr.

My heart goes out to their family. I do not know them personally, but many of my friends do. Her story is both heart-breaking and touching. Please consider donating to the March of Dimes to help sick babies and their families.

UPDATE
Trying to do my part by donating a portion of my store sales to #maddie

I especially love your first pirctue. There’s something about that tree in the middle of everything that I love. And it’s so close to that one gravestone! I’m guessing both the tree and gravestone are old. Happy Halloween!

This is one of those times when I wish we all lived near each other so we could all just sit in a room and cry, surrounded by people who understand.

Give those girls another hug for me.

Yes. Hold ’em close. And always, always, always tell them you love them.

You’re girls are beautiful and they made me smile. Thanks for sharing that.

And you are right, it is something no one should ever have to feel. Thanks again.

It’s always sad to hear about the loss of a little one. A sad reminder to never take what you have for granted. Your girls are beautiful.

Hold them close to your heart. That love will see you through anything, even the darkest pain. I promise.

I don’t personally know the Spohrs, either, but its nearly impossible to be part of this webby world and NOT be affected by their loss. I know I hugged my kids tighter and had more patience with them this weekend. Reading of a second baby passing today makes my heart sad, yet I know I’m very blessed.

I didn’t link in on your above Linky cuz I didn’t technically change my blog purple…but I added the button and a little purple ribbon to my header.
