Just Because

Heather hit the halfway point in her radiation treatments today (if you don’t know Heather’s story, you can read all about it here). To celebrate, she has thrown herself a little blog party – and all you have to do to participate is to comment and tell her where you’re from.

She has over 770 comments right now – and I think it would be fun if we helped to push her over 1,000. I mean, if we can do this, then surely we can handle a couple of hundred comments. Don’t you think?

Click here to join the fun – I know your comments will make her smile!

Praying For Heather


Please keep Heather in your prayers today. As most of you know, she’s having surgery to remove a brain tumor, and Kelli has organized a prayer chain so that Heather and her family will be covered in prayer all day long.

Also, Janice at 5 Minutes for Mom has made buttons you can post on your blogs, if you’d like; you can find the code here.

Heather’s best friend, Laura, will be updating Heather’s blog throughout the day, as will Mark when time permits.

Thanks, y’all.

Prayer For Heather

Kelli has details about how we can pray for Heather’s surgery here.

Thought y’all might like to know.


Edited to add: the link to Heather’s love offering will be active at least until she leaves for the Mayo Clinic on April 25th. You can click here for the post that will take you to PayPal. And click here to see our updated totals!


How does it feel to be the most generous internets in the universe?

Because that’s exactly what y’all are.

I don’t even know how to say “thank you” in a situation like this, but that may have something to do with the fact I’m still too busy shaking my head from side to side to actually write anything coherent.

Nonetheless, THANK YOU. A million times. Over and over.

Also, you need go see Chris at Notes From The Trenches. She’s organizing another prize giveaway – and anyone who has donated to the For Heather love offering is eligible. I’m not sure what all Chris has up her sleeve, but I do know that one of the fabulous prizes is a $150 diaper bag from Cool Mom Picks.

Which, if you think about it, is a whole lot nicer than the hot pile of nothing that I have to offer you. However, I will give you my hot pile of nothing WITH LUV, which of course will make it the most special. gift. evir.

Or not.


If you’ve been a part of Heather’s love offering and would like to be eligible for some great prizes, then head over to this post of Chris’ and leave a comment – and that’s all you have to do.

Also: thanks again, everybody.

I am so thankful for each and every one of you.

Today we have such an incredible opportunity to minister to our sweet friend Heather and her family. If you’re not familiar with the story behind this love offering, you can click here to see all the details.

If you are familiar with the story and ready to BLESS HEATHER’S SOCKS OFF, click on the little “Make A Donation” button below. The minimum donation is just one dollar – but certainly you may give more if you’d like. Your transaction will be completely secure via PayPal, whether you pay with your own PayPal account, your bank account, or a major credit card. If you don’t feel led to give or aren’t able to give today, then you can still contribute by praying for Heather and her family – and I know that they will be beyond grateful for your prayers.

Also: if you’ve supported this love offering for Heather by posting about it on your own blog, by praying about it, by praying for Heather and her family, or by contributing financially, then I’d love for you to leave a comment here that says, simply, “I’m in.”

I’ll be posting updates on our progress throughout the day, and don’t worry – the donation button will stay active for a couple of weeks, at least. So if you can’t contribute right this second, that is perfectly fine…you can come back by tomorrow or the next day and still have the opportunity to give.

More than anything, may God be glorified as His children come forward to lift up sweet Heather.

Thanks, y’all, for everything – and I’ll keep you posted!
