I am constantly amazed at the community that this blogging world is. We are able to connect on so many levels, we share laughs, triumphs, and mistakes. Unfortunately, we also share heart ache.
After reading of this story on one of my favorite DIY blogs, Vintage Revivals, I knew I had to share it.
Heidi of Honeybear Lane recently experienced an incredible loss in her family. Heidi's sister-in-law, Alice, recently gave birth to their third child. Unfortunately, Alice contracted a terrible infection called Step A Toxic Shock. After a hard fought battle, Alice's body succumbed to the sickness.
Alice's husband has now been left with three small children. To make matters worse, Alice's husband recently graduated with his MBA and they have no insurance. This story just breaks my heart. I can't imagine the pain in what is supposed to be a joyful time.
While, of course, nothing can replace the loss of life, Heidi has set up a donation fund to help her brother and his children. If you would like to donate, you can do so through the Paypal link on the sidebar of Heidi's blog. If you can't donate, I am sure thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated by this family.
There is no better time than this to be His hands for those in need.
