Every ounce of love and prayer. Every ounce.

For a little over a month now we have been diligently praying for the recovery for our dear blogging sister Anissa. She suffered a terrible stroke that has left her hospitalized, unable to communicate and with a very unsure future. We have cried, we have laughed, and we have cheered at her progress. We check for updates from her husband everyday and we all tear up hearing she made the slightest motion. We keep the faith that she will be her self again. That Anissa will pull through. That her children will have their Mommy back.

It's amazing to see such a huge group of people care and join together for someone. Whether or not they knew Anissa, people from all over the world are praying for her everyday. They are sending the family things. They are sending their love and hope.

It was the same when sweet angels Tuesday and Maddie received their wings. The help and support that followed by friends and complete strangers reminds us that there is still very much love in the world.

With any big group you will have happy moments, you will have funny moments, you will have wonderful moments you will never forget. But you will also share in sadness. We bloggers spend our days sharing the memories, the sights, the sounds, the heart of our lives, so it's only natural that when something tragic happens that we want to reach out and help. Our hearts break for our friends.

One of these heart breaking events happened this evening. Our dear Shellie (@military_mama) lost her beautiful two year old son.

There are never any words to say that can console this sort of sadness and broken heart. It must have taken me 20 minutes to form the simple tweet I sent her. All I could say was "I wish there was something I could say to you @military_mom. My heart goes out to you, as does every ounce of love and prayer. every ounce."

It is so hard to know what to say. For all the happy occasions we bloggers celebrate together, and all the words we share, the sad occasions still leave us speechless.

So I will do the one thing I can possibly do to help, and ask you my dear readers, my dear friends, PLEASE send every ounce of love and prayer possible to Shellie and her family. Her husband is not home yet (he is military) and they will need every ounce of extra strength we can share to help them through this.

Trisha has posted a post about this here and included a mailing address if you wish to send a card to the family. She is sending them on Monday. You can also contact Trish for Shellie's paypal address or more info if you wish to donate monetary support or anything else.

Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for any prayers you can send.

We are sending every ounce of our love, prayers and support Shellie! Every ounce!
