Hello!

Last Friday night I went out with some of the mums from my Mothers Group for a “girls night out” No men, no kids/babies just a bunch of girls out for dinner & drinks. It was a lovely night with Mexican for dinner & margaritas (virgin for those of us driving or breastfeeding) and whilst we were all sitting at the table feasting & laughing & discussing the joys of christmas coming up one of the mums told us about a friend of hers who is struggling at the moment. This lady has a 4 year old boy & has a 2 week old baby girl. Just a couple of months ago her husband was diagnosed with brain cancer & they dont know if he will survive & if he does what his quality of life will be like. He has not been able to hold, kiss or hug his kids – even his new baby girl, due to the radiation thearpy he is having. This couple no longer have any income coming in as he cannot work due to going to the hospital every day for treatment & she having just had their daughter. Whilst my friend was telling this story I began to think of what it would be like to be in that situation & I cannot imagine how hard it would be. I couldnt imagine not being able to have my partner hold our kids or me & not having any money to help out with basic day to day items they need let alone this close to christmas. So after a couple of minutes of talking it was decided – our mums group would go through all our kids clothes, toys & our cupboards & give this family every thing we can to help make this time a little less stressful & let them focus on the important things like making their daddy/hubby better. We have 10 wonderful mums in our group & each of us has put together a box/bagful of necessities (foods, cleaning items etc) as well as clothes & toys & a little luxury item for each of them. We know that some other friends of this family are making meals every night for them so we are hoping our little contribution will

  • … help out just a bit. We are also making sure we include something little for each of them for xmas. I have heard of so many stories like this & so many wonderful people out there helping & each time it breaks my heart to hear of the sad situations but also warms me to know people do care & will help out. Our hearts & love go to this lady & her family at this time & we hope we have helped to bring a little love & xmas cheer to their family.
