Inspired By You Wednesdays

I was reading Gills blog, she blogs at me-n-him-n-them, I have been unable to get Google to post her site to my blog roll, so frustrating, anyway, she mentioned that a little girl, Tuesday Fiona Whitt passed away on January30. ( www.half12.blogspot.com)

I read back to the beginning posts of this mom of 4, the youngest, adorable twin girls with bouncy curls and angel faces. This mom blogged about the funny little day by day events we all blog about, birthdays, kids, playing in the garbage cans. In July everything changed one of her little twins was diagnosed with cancer. I read heart breaking posts about long nights spent in the intensive care unit, inspiring posts about prayers and fund raisers and good news, posts with pictures of a beautiful little girl with no hair, fighting hard for her life, here and there are bits of humor, a sweet acceptance and presence that is often lacking in my life.

Thanks Whitt family for having the strength and courage to share your beautiful lives with us. We will wrap our arms around our little ones and big ones, relish each second of their precious lives, accept the unacceptable that we may embrace each moment, for truly that is all any of us have.

I have no idea how they kept blogging throughout it all but I know that so many parents are hugging their little ones a bit tighter right now.

It's amazing the strength that parents can muster in times of adversity. I will be praying for that family, for I know their pain is deep.

Tuesday's story is something that I have read again and again. Each time, it brings me to tears. I am unsure how parents survive the experience of losing a child.

It was wonderful of the Whitt family to share their journey with the blog world. They are continually in my thoughts.

How can I explain that my heart broke and got bigger while I read their story? Just like Audrey at Bring The Rain, Tuesday has changed me for the better.

I think sometimes that blogging is such a beautiful gift from God, so often we want to pour out our hearts about our trials and struggles, and here we can say everything - over and over if we want, and get the release we so desperately need. And at the same time inspire others to hold on!
