Taking Some Time for Tuesday

I don't know Tuesday Fiona Witt, I have seen pictures even watched videos.  I have read many posts describing her and ran across many fundraisers in her honor.  Mostly I know that she lost an 8 month battle with neuroblastoma in January of this year. When I read about her story my heart aches. I can't imagine what her family and friends are going through.  I pray that they find peace and I pray that the medical field finds a cure for all cancer. 

There are no words that can mend a heart that has lost a child.  My mom lost my sister when I was two years old and I still feel her absence and my Mom still can't talk about it.  There is no greater pain.  I wish everyday that I could do something to mend her heart.  My mom didn't have a great support system. My biological father left, my family didn't help her cope and it wasn't until years later when she found a friend who had suffered in the same way that she had someone to talk to. That makes me sad in so many ways.  We grew up not really knowing much about my sister - we just didn't talk about her and in that way we didn't honor her.

Today I would like to pay tribute to Tuesday,  her family, to the people that surround them and support them through this very difficult time, to the people who have donated and keep donating on Tuesday's behalf and to all the people who talk about her and who love her. You are all so very special and are making a difference.  

I pray that one day cancer is wiped out for good. That they find a cure soon that not another person is lost. Today is the Tuesday Blog Party. Today is a chance for people like me to give a little in honor of Tuesday. When I first saw the little button I knew that I must participate in this and I hope that you will too. Every little bit helps. 

So this is what I am auctioning: 

An I Spy pillow.  A little pillow filled with little trinkets made by Sarah.  Great for the car trip, church, or airplane ride.  My girls think they are great!

Please give your mom a hug from someone who knows her heart. I'm so sorry.
Tuesday got an "I spy" pillow as a gift during her battle and she loved it. She'd always get excited when she found the baby bottle, which I thought was funny since she would NEVER take a bottle.
Thank you so much,
Tuesday's mama

Your post made me tear up. I am so sorry you lost your sister and even more sorry your mom felt she had no support after such a tragic event. Hugs to both of you. I agree every little bit we can do makes a difference!

And here's #3 for kiddo #3!

I am entering for my girls. I have never seen one before but it looks and sounds awesome. Both my grandmothers lost children and I never hear them talk about my mom and dad's sisters. I think it was the times and that was the norm. But we know it's not normal and part of healing is talking about it.
