November 11, 2007 – April 7, 2009
I had a post for today about kids and laughter and things they do to embarass you. It has been put on hold.
My darling, strong, beautiful amazing friend Heather has lost her gorgeous, funny, spunky little daughter, Maddie.
I want to write a beautiful post, something amazing, something that will do her proper tribute, but I can’t.
I’m sitting here with tears streaming down my face and pieces of my heart shattering for the pain and loss that Heather and Mike must be feeling.
You can see their story here.
Maddie was a preemie and Heather wrote some wonderful things including this post about NICU protocol for friends and family.
Please hug your family, say a prayer of peace and strength for my wonderful friend, Heather, and her family and then go donate to the March of Dimes in Maddie’s name.
Maddie lived from November 11, 2007 – April 7, 2009 and what that little girl did in between those dates, the dash, so to speak. Is amazing. She lived fiercely, beautifully and passionately. Honor her by making the most of your dash, too.
** the amazing heart of the internet has proven once again just how tremendous this community is. Maddie’s March of Dimes page is overloaded and their blog is having issues keeping up with all the visitors. Give it time and keep re-trying, even if it’s tomorrow. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
