The last few days some very sad stories have found their way into my google reader, and I wanted to share--not to make everyone else sad--so we could all help.

The first:

Blog ♥ Bid ♥ Hope

And second:

An Auction for Emily Jones (wife of caver, John Jones, who passed away on Thanksgiving in the Nutty Putty Caves)

As I've read their stories , I've been overwhelmed at how blessed I am, and how much hope there is out there.  I've been hugging my kids tighter, and finding my patience with them a little easier.

If you have anything to give, now is as good a time as ever.

**If you don't have time to read it all, read this post, from Matt Logelin about the day he brought his baby girl home from the hospital without his wife, who passed away shortly after childbirth.
