This is the thing about blogging-it’s like you get know know all these women, families, without knowing them. Each post a small peek in the window of their lives.
I’ve been watching this. I love surfing blogs. Some make me feel normal. Some give me inspiration to keep going. Some hit an emotion note. Some are just funny. Some you wonder, how on earth does she do it all? It is just fun to see all this.
Some of these women I have been watching, merge together. This is happening on twitter. For example the 2:1conf (for homeschooling bloggers) just got over last week and I have been watching ladies move from twitter handles to face to face friends.
All this from blogging.
All this from peeking into windows.
Two windows caught my heart this week.
One was Diana from Hormonal Imbalances. She was pregnant with twins and her water broke. Doctors wanting to just deliver her but she wanted to wait. The hospital was bombarded by concerned bloggers cause the parents wanted to give their babies a chance to live.
Sadly they boys were born this morning and are resting with Jesus.
Her last tweet: LifeasaSAHM “Julian and Preston were born this morning. We held them as they met Jesus. Please pray for us.”
Our prayers to them. I know how hard it is to lose a baby. It is heartbreaking. With the love and comfort of our loving God they will slowly recover. Never the same, but strengthen to move on with the promise of one day being united in heaven.
The other one was Avery’s Bucket List. This little 5 month sweetie was diagnosed with an incurable genetic disease. Her parents had her a bucket list for her to do in her short little life. I started following her two days before she died. My sister showed me her blog.
Both these parents blow me away. Beyond these blogs, these windows I peek in, I see parents who are fighting to give their children the best they can give them. This is what every parents should do for their children. Fight to give them the best life you can! Some times in foster care some parents don’t fight.
Words cannot comfort enough what these parents have gone through. But they can rest assured that they are in the hearts and prayers of many peeking in the window of blogs.
