Sometimes I think things as trivial as blogging are hard to do when someone you know is hurting so badly. The blogosphere's sweetheart, Diana, and her husband Scott lost their precious baby Max this week. I truly believe there is no one more kind hearted and selfless than Diana, and I've looked up to her for years. She and Scott have blessed our little family in so many ways, and I'm so grateful to call her a friend. Hearing her news yesterday brought an onslaught of tears and heartache. Knowing their struggles to conceive, then her patience for for Max to "bake" a little longer in the oven, only makes it feel more unfair. He was taken before he could even enter the world and my heart sinks at the thought. Diana has the strongest heart of anyone I know, and I know she can endure this pain. But I feel so inspired by the blogging community right now. So many people have come together to ensure Diana and Scott have an unshakable support group. There are so many incredible people in the world and I'm humbled to know so many myself. If you pray, please pray for Diana and Scott. Pray for Baby Max. If you don't yet have the pleasure of knowing Diana, I hope you are given the opportunity because she's truly one of the most incredible women in the world.
