My Heart Goes Out to You...

I have several drafts I've been working on, waiting to be finished and posted. So many things I want to tell you all, memes I've been tagged for, pictures to share...

But then, while traveling the blogosphere for the last two days, I came across four blogs that totally moved me. And I knew that I had to share them with you all.

I think sometimes we all get complacent, and forget that other people out there are dealing with issues so much bigger than we can even grasp. They make our day-to-day stress look like molehills to mountains.
They need our support, prayers, vibes, juju, whatever you have to offer.

I put a link to this blog up on my sidebar. Mikey and his family are going through a very rough time, and right now they're on pins and needles waiting on results. Please go visit them.


This lovely lady visited my blog recently. She left a comment and I went over to visit her blog. I was absolutely amazed and left in awe of her and her family. Their story is amazing, and right now little Dennis needs love and support. Can you visit and leave some love?

And then there's Kori. I can't even imagine what she and her family go through on a daily basis. Their strength amazes me. They are also in a time of need right now; need of prayers, support, and understanding.

One more thing....my long-time bloggy friend, Krissy, just suffered a major loss. Her family is devastated.

Please take some of your blogging time and visit these people. It may give you a different perspective. It will almost definitely deeply move you, and make you pause to think about what other people are going through, and where our focus should be in life.

*One more thing...if anyone knows how to set up a PayPal account for donations for someone, please let me know...and please don't make it complicated! I can't do complicated!*

I know how to set up a Paypal account, but I'm not sure how you set it up for donations. You'll have to provide your bank account and I think your Visa card numbers, so I'm not sure how that works with a donation situation. There's probably something about it on the website.

It is sometimes easy to get wrapped up in our own world and not notice those who are hurting that we pass by... wonderful post...

Ugh. You pulled me out from my self-centered bloggyness. I really do thank you even though it doesn't sound like it.

Off to read now.

Thanks for the links - I'm checking them out!

Kel said...

So true that we don't often see what is right in front of us and usually all around us.

Sometimes a kind word is enough to know that you are not alone during the difficult and trying times in our journey.

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for those links! I know Kori, but I haven't been to the other blogs. Off to check them out now...

Karen said...

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and for your lovely comments.

I always get a bit of a giggle, when I see people's reactions to the mention that Sparky and Meesha are siblings :-)

I know Kori and she, and Richard, are both such inspirations. I'll be back to visit your other two links once all today's visitors deaprt and I've finished writing thankyou notes !!

angie said...

I *HEART* Kori and will check out the other bloggers as well. Thank you for sharing them with us!

Momisodes said...

Thank you for the heads up. You are such a sweetheart for posting. I'm off to go check out the links.

Jennifer said...

Hello there!! :) we are lucky that I'm typing this and not trying to talk to you... why?? oh b/c I have NO voice. Ugh. just the other day I commented to you about this... and dammit it happened to me. ARRR.

But in the scheme of things this is NOT bad at all. I just went and visited all the blogs you have listed in your post and left them all comment love. I plan on keeping up with them all probably adding them to my blog roll IF they don't mind.
thank you for sharing. it does put everything into a better perspective when you see real people dealing with REAL problems. made me rethink my complaining lately. thank you.

Have a great night and I hope your voice is back... I know I have at least a few more days ahead of me of no voice... ugh. but like I said it could be worse.

xoxoxoxo HUGS!!!

good work...and there's never enough love when you need some support. :)

Christine said...

Thanks for mentioning on your blog. And thanks for the prayers for Dennis. Huge blessings to you and your family. I have enjoyed checking out the other blogs too.

nikkicrumpet said...

Thanks for the blog visit. I love your post on "give a kid a camera" thats a funny concept that works! I'll have to check out the blogs you mentioned. Thanks for the heads up!

Willow said...

You've got such a sweet heart! Thanks for sharing these stories. It is easy to forget that, in the overall scheme of things, we are incredibly blessed and should be reaching out to those in need.

PS Have I said that I totally love your background?

Jo-Jo said...

I will go over and pay them a visit!

Chrissie, Christine, Chris, Mommy, Mama, Maaaaa... said...

Thank you so much for your kind words, good thoughts and prayers for Mike and our family. We have results but, unfortunately, the results give us no more answers than we had before. It is quite frightening to know your 2 year old has a tumor that even the best neuro-pathologists in the United States can not identify.
Thank you so much for posting about us on your blog and asking for prayers on our behalf. It means so much to us to know that so many people are praying for Mike. Please keep those good thoughts and prayers coming!

Love,
Chrissie
