My heart is heavy

My heart is heavy tonight. Earlier this morning I jumped on my google reader and read a couple blogs before getting ready for work. This is not typical of me, mostly because I am usually running late.

I read Momma Go Round's blog and it absolutely broke my heart.

She writes about sweet Maddie, a 4 month old beautiful little girl. She stopped breathing while at her babysitter's house, was rushed to the hospital, was not able to be revived, and made her trip home to our Father in Heaven.

I do not know this family personally but their story has hit me hard. As a mother to a son just weeks younger then their daughter, I cannot even begin to imagine the pain they must be going through.

I wanted to write this post because I am a firm believer in prayer and I hoped that you would be able to take a moment and send your prayers to this family that they have strength to get through this very difficult time.

If you would like to show your support, please visit there blog and let them know you are thinking of them: The Staats blog.


  1. You have such a big heart to think of others. It is so hard to know waht to say at times like this. But just to let them know that they are in your prayers sometimes is all they need. Thanks for sharing. And may the Lord bless you and your little one.

  2. I do not follow the Staats blog but I did stumble across it through another blog I read and I too sat at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee in hand all alone and sobbed big ole' baby tears. I have a 2 year old son and couldn't imagine the pain they are going through.

  3. I went to their blog and am following them now. I can't imagine how they must feel! My heart goes out to them.
