No words


Pardon the hiatus. My husband's mother was struck and killed by a car yesterday.

We are all in shock - it's like being in a horrible dream.

To honor her memory, we're directing donations to a charity event she was participating in - something she got really excited about, put a lot of effort into, and spent time recruiting people for. You can find out more about it here if you are so inclined.

In the meantime, your prayers and good thoughts are much appreciated.

This is so awful. Sadly, this happened to another blogger while she was walking with her son.

Fortunately, she survived, but unfortunately she had her pelvis shattered and has a long road of recovery ahead of her.
