Truthful Tuesday: Heartbroken

I had a different Truthful Tuesday set for today.

Then, my friend, Bonnie, sent me a link to a blog.

I clicked, I read, I cried and cried and cried and I remembered, once again, how ridiculously lucky I am that my babies are all strong and healthy.

By sharing today, I’m doing my part to help spread the story and help her meet a goal on the list.

Please visit the blog and read.

And as you read, remember how very, very fortunate you are, in your own life.

Avery’s Bucket List

Edited to add:  I just went to Avery’s blog at 10:10 am 5.1.12 and found that she passed away last night.  Heartbroken doesn’t begin to describe it.


  1. Followed Avery’s bucket list and am amazed at her parents strength. So sad.

  2. It is so sad. I can’t imagine that I would be able to be this brave and do this kind of thing and not just wallow. I hope I would have the strength, but I don’t know.

  3. OMG, my sister just told me that she died. I’m stunned and so sad. I hope these parents continue to have the wonderful support system around them now that Avery is no longer with them. Such a tragedy. 🙁

    • Tragedy is a good word for it. So sad.

  4. Someone shared this in my facebook feed today and I really wanted to bring myself to read it but I just couldn’t bring myself to. I think when I finally do I better make sure my husband is home.

    • Absolutely. Heartbreaking and inspiring, all at the same time.
