a fund for Jennie

I learned about the sudden passing of Jennie’s husband over Twitter one morning, two weeks ago. I was sitting at work, sipping coffee and scanning the internet while waiting to head into a meeting. I’ve never met Jennie, nor had I read her blog. But the news hit me hard. It left me in tears at my desk. It broke my heart.

Loss touches all of us at one time or another. It’s a sad truth that we all have in common. Life is unpredictable and oftentimes, it is unfair. But it is also beautiful, especially in times like these when people from all over the world are finding it in their hearts to help a stranger.

The food blogging community has come together to provide financial support for Jennie and her family. Please visit GlutenFreeGirl and Bloggers Without Borders to learn more about the effort.

Give anything that you can, and remember to count your blessings and hold them dear.

Rest in peace, Mikey.

One thought on “a fund for Jennie

  1. I thought the same thing when I heard about it through other blogs. I sobbed while reading her post about how Sunday evenings will never be the same. I can’t even imagine how she’s dealing with this, and being so strong. I’d be an absolute mess.
