Planting Love

February 12, 2011

I love free things.

I also love people who donate free things.

I also love people who donate free things for a really good cause.

What I don’t love is coming across stories of families who have lost children way, way, way before it’s time. But I do read them because something about those stories sticks with me. Those stories leave a heavy spot in my chest – a physical sensation that’s really hard to get rid of.

One thing that helps get rid of it is seeing people rally around those families and doing something to help. So I’m joining the rally cry to help one family whose story has really touched me.

Sarah at Yes, Teacher! is hosting the Planting Love Giveaway this week to help the Hillis family. I don’t know Amy and I don’t know her family. But I’ve been reading her story for a couple of weeks and when I came across this opportunity I didn’t have to think twice. I donated without even going through all the prizes in detail.

Because free stuff is nice. But love is even better.

    And love is always free. I will stop by and check out Amy’s blog. I cannot even imagine losing a child. My heart goes out to her and her family.

    I have been following Amy’s blog for a few months now and was devastated by the loss of David. I borrowed what you wrote and put it on my blog to get it out there. I hope you don’t mind. I hope they can raise alot of $$ to help them out.
    God Bless,
    Shelley
