Today I would like to honour the life of Punk Rock Mommy who lost her battle with cancer.
Carolyn at Laughing alone in the Dark first drew my attention to this young woman who was blogging about her fight with cancer. Carolyn asked all of us to throw our support behind this young woman so that she would win the Best of Blogs for Best Mommy Blog.
Today her husband Kelly has posted her passing and I feel like I have lost a friend even though I don't know her.
However - her passing now leaves her husband and their children to get through their days without her.
That part - that horrible - sorrow filled part - is like a death sentence in itself. It rips at us and we scream in our agony - and no-one hears. Not God - not Santa Clause....no-one. We are always alone with our inner pain and our attempts to put salve on the scars that fester and irritate inside of us.
Sometimes they heal - sometimes they don't.
As for this family - they need our help. They need our words and our support. There is a link for those of you who feel they can donate a little something financially.
Please - take a moment out of your day and read some of this woman's inspiring words. They are raw and vibrant and should be taught in school - 'How to Live a Life'.
I hate you Cancer! I hate you!
