This morning while reading a blog I follow, I learned of the death of a toddler named Ryan. This small boy died in an accident last Friday. His mother Jacqui's blog, Baby Boy Bakery, is full of pictures and writing about Ryan.
Even without ever having met Ryan, I can tell by his mother's beautiful blog that he was a sweet and very beloved boy. I cannot fathom the pain of this loss. The blogging community grieves, and a page has been set up at Thrive Moms for donations to support the family. Through social media, we can show them how much we care.

After mentioning Mother's Day on my blog several times this week, I began to worry that I have been insensitive. It is a day to celebrate having mothers and being mothers. Like any holiday though, it can be painful reminder of disappointment and loss. For anyone who experiences it this way - and especially Jacqui - I wish you peace this Sunday.
