A few weeks ago I followed a link that was labeled, "For the Love of Tuesday". I don't typically bother with things that look like ads, but the picture was just so adorable... It was a little girl holding her mom and dad's hands, but most of them out of the frame. I don't know what I was expecting. Perhaps another clever name for a children's boutique... What I found was an incredible family, the Whitts. Tuesday's mother has a blog called Go Blog Yourself. She chose to share the story of Tuesday's battle with neuroblastoma, a rare and life-threatening cancer. Her strength is amazing and she was able to write even when the worst happened. Tuesday joined the other angels in heaven on January 30 of this year. She was born just two months after my little Sis, so the story was very dificult to read, but also inspiring and beautiful. Jessica(Tuesday's mother) showed such character and continues to live everyday for her husband and children. I do not have a lot of money to offer, but some are doing giveaways or yard sales and donating the proceeds. I would like to offer up a pair of hairbows. I will try to put up a couple of pics of my bows tonight or tomorrow. I don't have many followers and have not done any giveaways or anything. My hope is that I can send them to one of the bloggers I have been following who could sell them and donate the money in honor of Tuesday to help in the research of pediatric cancer. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please let me know. In my left collumn, you will find a button/link which is an invite to a blog party for this precious little girl.
We influence who our children will be with the way we behave around them and love them. Such an incredible opportunity! I love spending time with my kids and getting to see things from their perspective. They are such a blessing!
Almost a teenager and maturing by the second, I can barely keep up with this boy! It is so exciting and terrifying watching your child grown into an adult. But I'm already so proud of the man that he is becoming!
Drama-Boy (Dun dun dun Daaaah!)
This child is so creative and loving! The drama has not toned down and I wouldn't want it to for a minute. He is one of the sweetest and most sensitive people I've ever known and he sees the world in a beautiful way!
Little Miss Sass
This girl continues to surprise and challenge us everyday. She is brilliant and beautiful and I love every minute!
