A different kind of post...


I was so touched when I read this post about a nursery featured on ohdeedoh last week:


You may have already seen it, but if you have not, here is a little summary:
The day our little miss was born was the most wonderful of our lives – what happiness the three of us shared, together and with our families. We brought Charlotte home from the hospital and introduced her to this beautiful room that would be all her own. Then, when our baby was just eighteen days old, my husband… her Daddy… passed away unexpectedly.
 Now, it’s just the two of us – and while I could not have ever pictured being in this situation, this is where we’re at and we are going to get through this. Yes, there will be tears and struggle – but there will also be love and celebration. We’re about to put our house up for sale and I consider it a gift that Charlotte has been able to spend a couple months in her beautiful room – that her Daddy and I put so much love into – before we leave our home.


My heart broke into a million pieces when I read that.  It is breaking again just thinking about it.  My reason for this post is that Kate is trying to sell her gorgeous home in Atlanta.  She needs help and that is where we come in.  Kate has set up this website:  535 Stillhouse Lane  Please pass it along to anyone you may know in the Atlanta area.  You can visit Kate's blog, more specifically this post, for more details and ways you can help spread the word.  To quote Kate:

You may not think you know people who are in the market, but perhaps there’s a friend of a friend out there who is just perfect for this house.  It takes just one buyer…

Thank you so much for reading this!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend, have a very happy Monday, and have a fabulous week!

Suzie, how kind you are to post this. Kate sounds like a very strong young woman and a wonderful mother. How tragic to lose a young husband...how wonderful she has a beautiful daughter. Love, Mom
