When I found out that fellow food blogger, Jennie, just lost her husband a few weeks ago suddenly it hit very close to home.
Because only two years ago I lost my little brother very, very suddenly. I know the shock and grief that comes with losing a family member all too well and my heart went out to Jennifer and her family. Someone described it to me once as “a very exclusive club you never ever want to belong to”. Yep, that’s it. Nothing in life can prepare you for such a tragedy and you just pray the same thing doesn’t happen to someone else.
Aside from praying for Jennie’s family (she has two young daughters under the age of 10), we can also help her financially, which I know is a huge need right now. I can’t even imagine the horror of losing a husband, but also dealing with bills and new expenses that are suddenly all on your back? It’s just not right. And I know as a community, we can help. We must help.
Life is so, so short, my friends. Let’s do all we can to help someone that needs us now.
