Get the tissues ready.

If you have a minute later in the day or even now check out this blog and this one too.  In case you haven’t read it allow me to recap.. Taylor Swift wrote a song, I know no big news there right well she wrote the song for a little boy who died of cancer. If that wasn’t enough to get the tears flowing, she wrote the song after reading the mothers blog. The blog is a daily post written to Ronan from the mother.  I can see how this blog could inspire a great song writer  like Taylor   to pen a song about it.

The blog is heart wrenching yet inspirational.  Speaking to a deceased loved one is not uncommon and it, provides inner peace, confidence, ritual, comfort and motivation as well as many other beneficial things.

No one has the answer in dealing with loss. We all deal with loss in our own ways. This mothers way is amazing and her blog has 5,705,786 hits on it right now! That is quite a number. I am not sure how many people will be inspired by reading this blog or hearing Taylors song but through reading the blog I can help but think that through the mom writing in the blog and her families support as well as this song she is healing and that is very important.

Cancer kills more kids under 20 each year than asthma, Each year about 2, 300 children die of cancer,  and fighting cancer is expensive!  All proceeds from this song go towards cancer related charities, and it’s a beautifully written and performed song so download it.

There is a strong possibility that someone reading this has a friend or family member that has either lost a child or their child is suffering from cancer. How is the best way to help? This is a great site with some wonderful suggestions.  It seems the best thing to do more often than not is to just be there for that person. It also seems that the best thing is also the hardest.
