When I awoke this morning I had a brief glance at my google reader, expecting to see a cheery headline from Lori of Random Ramblings of a Stay at Home Mum (RRSAHM) announcing another edition of Flog Your Blog Friday (FYBF).
My mind was full of ideas for a blog post to link up, maybe one on the new house and renovation and furniture expenses, but I was stopped in my tracks by this headline from Lori instead – I need your prayers.
Suddenly my dillemmas on whether to purchase a king size bed or fix up our drainage issues seemed ridiculously unimportant. Lori’s husband Tony was in ICU, things didn’t look good.
I only know Lori through her blog posts and some lovely comments she’s left here on my blog. I don’t need to know her personally to know that she is a kind hearted, fun, loving and generous woman. That she doesn’t deserve this pain.
My thoughts are with her and her two little ones as they pray that Tony pulls through.
The upside to sadness is that it pulls people together, and I am proud to be part of such a strong community of bloggers that managed to come together with lovely messages of support in the time it took me to eat breakfast and email for some quotes in floor sanding and polishing.
The amazing Kristen @ Wanderlust has put together a special edition of FYBF for Lori which I’m linking up to in a show of support. She has also added a paypal widget to her blog for anyone to add a donation, however big or small, to help Lori out.
You’ve got alot of people sending lots of positivity your way, Lori. Sending you a bright sunflower – here’s hoping you get some good news soon.
