When I was pregnant, I joined an online message board group through iVillage. There, I virtually met and befriended numerous mommies, all of us expecting our bundles of joy in April of that year. Several are now Facebook friends. I love watching their children grow, just as they are watching Amelia grow through my photos, status updates, and this blog.

Tragically, one of those mommies must say goodbye to her husband today. The father of her precious children, ages 2 1/2 and 4. From what I've learned about him, he was a joyous person, an amazing dad, and a loving husband. He bravely fought cancer for 2 years. We thought he was doing OK... but he died, rather suddenly, with his family last week.

My heart aches for this family. For the wife/mother who must move forward with an empty space in her heart. For those children, who are struggling to understand where Daddy went. I cannot even begin to imagine how badly they hurt. How lost and confused they must feel. How much they want to scream at the world.

I don't know what I would do without my husband. I will count extra blessings today.

You do the same.
