Prayers for Shellie

A fellow mom and blogger and her family is in need of your prayers today. Over the past few months I have had the pleasure of getting to know Shellie over on the MomDot forums. She is a wonderful woman. A military mom with her husband on his way to Iraq, they had just completed a move into a new house. Then yesterday the unthinkable happened. Shellie's precious 2 year old son passed away in a tragic pool accident.

My heart aches for Shellie and her family. I wish I could take away her pain. I wish I could go back in time and change what happened. I feel so helpless. Shellie, please know that we are all here for you during this difficult time. Lean on us for support and tell us what you need and we will help you. We love you.

I ask all my readers to pray for Shellie, her family, and her precious angel Bryson. If you would like to send a card, Trisha at MomDot is collecting them to send to Shellie at the end of the week.

And now I ask that you go and hug your own little one.

Others who are praying for Shellie:


  1. It's just devastating. My heart breaks for Shellie and her family.

  2. I've been praying and hugging all day. Such a sad, sad thing..

  3. I wasn't able to get onto the Prayers for Shellie blog to add my name to this list, but I'd like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with her and her family for this horrible, sad loss. I would also like to mention to her, if it hasn't been mentioned before, that there is an organization called Compassionate Friends that is a self-help support group for parents, grandparents and siblings who have lost a child. It helped my mom tremendiously when my sister passed away.


Thank you for visiting my blog! I love comments, so please say hello and tell me what is on your mind.
