Like many of you, my heart has ached deeply for the family of beautiful little Tuesday Whitt who's precious soul flew to Heaven far too soon. If you haven't read their story, please click here. Yesterday, I happened upon a wonderful blog, moms without blogs. Lee has written a beautiful tribute to Tuesday. She and another fellow blogger, Em at Life, Liberty and the Pursuit have come up with a wonderful way to share in the celebration of Miss Tuesday's life. On Saturday Feb. 7th, Tuesday's family will have a bike and wagon parade at their local park. Miss Tuesday loved "wagie rides"! For those of us who want to show their support for the family, Lee and Em are hosting a virtual wagie parade. On Monday Feb. 9th, they will post the photos we share with them. Please clickety on the Wagie button on my sidebar for details. I know Lee and Em would love it if you add their button to your blog. My family will be out in our wagie on Saturday. I hope yours will too!
Also, Jay over at halftime lessons is shaving his head in support of children's cancer research through an organization called St. Baldricks. He has inspired me to donate Miss Catherine's long lovely locks to make wigs for children with cancer. Please click on the St. Baldericks button on my sidebar for more details and while you're at it, add that button too! Jay is spot on when he says that we have all been affected by this disease. My cousin David died at age 12 from leukemia and stomach cancer. It deeply affected me as a child. Please read Jay's blog. You will be inspired.
I would like to say thank you to Brenda Jean over at In the Treetop for leading me to Lee at moms without blogs. Scootie on over to Brenda Jean's blog! You will get the giggles! I love ya', Brenda Jean!
Lastly, another fellow blogger, Cynthia over at Confessions of a Yummy Mummy suffered the tremendous loss of her baby Aiden on Monday. I found Cynthia through SITS just recently. Please send her prayers and support.
I cannot even imagine what these families are going through. I feel so helpless. I hope that through my blog today, I can encourage you to show your support to these families in crisis. Thank you for sharing your time with me today.
Love to you all...
p.s. Ty update...Didn't get to see my hottie:( My dear friend who lives in that neighborhood called to tell me they had that place locked up tighter than Fort Knox! Wahhh.....boo hiss...
