I'm doing what I can to help--Are you?

A blogger friend I know needs our help. Her friend lost a child recently. The child was accidentally hit while playing in the driveway by the daycare provider. I would be heart broken as a mother. And if I lost a child at Christmas time I would be a complete wreck. Babesrockinmami has set up a paypal account to donate for her friend. (Her friend is facing the burial costs of a child. Can you believe? Ugh. My heart goes out.) People are donating stuff to giveaway too. All to help this mother in need.

I don't have money to give. But I have a blog. I can post about this. I am hoping you all will do the same. You too can put the Riley button on your blog.
Spread the word. Help BabesrockingMami's (Stephanie) friend.
No one should have to deal with the loss of a child. If you can do anything, I'm sure Stephanie will appreciate it.

You can link your blog post up on Stephanie's site  so her friend can see the support.
Thanks for your help in spreading the word. Anything you can do will be appreciated--I'm sure.
I don't have much, but I have a blog to post stuff like this for.

To Mami's friend Sandra.
I found a poem that I hope will bring you comfort at this time.
I don't have money to give or much to donate but my heart goes out to you.
And I hope you find peace this season.
No one should have to deal with the loss of a child.
God bless you and your family as you deal with this loss.

Don't Tell Me

Please don't tell me you know how I feel,
Unless you have lost your child too,
Please don't tell me my broken heart will heal,
Because that is just not true,
Please don't tell me my son is in a better place,
Though it is true, I want him here with me,
Don't tell me someday I'll hear his voice, see his face,
Beyond today I cannot see,
Don?t tell me it is time to move on,
Because I cannot,
Don?t tell me to face the fact he is gone,
Because denial is something I can't stop,
Don't tell me to be thankful for the time I had,
Because I wanted more,
Don't tell me when I am my old self you will be glad,
I'll never be as I was before,
What you can tell me is you will be here for me,
That you will listen when I talk of my child,
You can share with me my precious memories,
You can even cry with me for a while,
And please don't hesitate to say his name,
Because it is something I long to hear everyday,
Friend please realize that I can never be the same,
But if you stand by me, you may like the new person I become someday.

That is heartbreaking. My heart goes to their family.
You are a sweetheart to blog about it.
