For Cora.



Today would be Cora's first birthday.
And her parents have to face it with empty arms at a gravesite.
There is a song that Jess used to sing with her class that always made me cry.
I blogged about it here and here.
Please keep The McClenahans in your prayers today.
And if you feel led, you can buy something with the proceeds going to help build Cora's Playground, or you can donate here.

I read their post last night and the song brought tears to my eyes.

Thinking and praying for them today and everyday.

Oh, now you've got me crying all over again...

I took the day off to get some things done, but I went to the blog you left a link for in The Macs comments and have now sat at my computer for an hour crying. Peoples amazing stories about life just floor me sometimes. They write about their pain so eloquently (just like the Macs), I'm pretty sure I couldn't function if it were me, but I guess you find a way. It's a nice blog. I hope Joel and Jess find comfort in it.

Although I don't know the McClenahans, they and Cora will be in my thoughts and prayers all day. Beki, you picked a beautiful flower to share the page with Cora's post! May God Bless them with strength and great memories today.

I just have to tell you that this morning I went into my little one's room to open her drapes and outside her window was a pink balloon! I cried!!

We celebrated her (Jillian's) 1st on Saturday and I took down all the decorations this past Tuesday - none were outside.

Maybe Sweet Angel Cora heard all of our prayers :)

I hate that someone else's pain helps me to appreciate my own blessings.

We talk about Cora a lot over here. And pray for her and her family. Their story has touched so many people. Thanks for the gentle reminder today.

The McClenahans have been in my thoughts and prayers since I first read their story. May the Lord continue to strengthen them, especially today.

Oh, what an incredible loss. May the Lord give them supernatural strength and peace especially today. Off to see their post and probably cry some more...
