If you're tuned into the blogosphere, you know that Maddie Spohr passed away a week ago. I spent hours pouring over posts written about her and gazing at her amazing eyes. I couldn't bring myself to post about it, as my words couldn't possibly add any more to everyone's outpouring of support. Her loss has touched so many and has created much awareness on the fragile existence of preemies. Giving money doesn't bring her back, but it does ease the burden on her family as well as support a worthy cause. So please consider giving here:
And on the heels of Maddie, I heard about Thalon Myers, who passed away this weekend. I am at a complete loss for words. Please visit whoorl for her tribute.
As I walked outside this week, pondering the meaning of all this sadness, I noticed something quite normal, yet remarkable.

Spring is finally here in New England. May these young souls be at peace and may the rest of us experience renewal.
