Today the Spohrs celebrate the life of their beloved Maddie.
I do not know the family personally. But, as with many other members in the blogging community, I feel like I do. Their loss is shared across the community, and I am heartbroken for them.
Life is so fleeting. We get wrapped up in our personal drama, and even the drama of others. We forget.
Then, a terrible tragedy like this happens and we find ourselves hit in the face with something we don't see coming - our humanity.
Take a moment and say a prayer for the Spohrs today. Their sweet Maddie has been an inspiration and touched the lives of countless people. I know they are receiving love and support from all over the world.
I look at my own beautiful daughter and I cannot help but think of the many "what ifs". But, that is wasting precious moments that we have together. So, I will dress her in purple today and thank God for every second that we have.
