445th Friday Blog Roundup (May 31, 2013) — Sisters (May 30, 2013)
Mel’s words about my post: Bereaved and Blessed has a photo that is worth 1000 words.

402nd Friday Blog Roundup (July 20, 2012) – When You Get Little (July 14, 2012)
Mel’s words about my post: Bereaved and Blessed has a post on something her daughter says. It’s such a moment of sweetness, but it also ends with a thought-provoking question, one that scared me shitless when I thought about the ending to Max Tivoli. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts over there.

337th Friday Blog Roundup (April 22, 2011)  Perfect Moment Monday: “I’m that Someone.”  (April 18, 2011)
Mel’s words about my post: A moving post about taking the statistical bullet and pairs it with a story about her father that will make you rethink the whole start of the post where she explains that she is that someone in the sentence, “it has to happen to someone.”  It is about re-examining suffering from two different angles.

277th Friday Blog Roundup (February 26, 2010)  Omega and Alpha (February 24, 2010)
Mel’s words about my post: A post about being finished with having children. Once they receive news about the chance of having another child with the same medical conditions as Molly, they make a soft decision to end family building, but she states: “That said, it is one thing to come to that decision on our own and felt very different to me last week when I was under the impression that someone else, the Pediatric Geneticist, was discouraging us from going down that road again.”  I love the end of the post, bringing together the concept of the alpha and the omega.  It’s just a gorgeous read.

154th Friday Blog Roundup (September 4, 2009) —  “We Carry On…” (August 29, 2009)
Mel’s words about my post: A post about the memorial service for Senator Kennedy. It is a beautiful post that contains a quotation written by Senator Kennedy and sent to the families of those who lost a family member on the anniversary of 9/11 (he sent a letter each year). And it’s the quote that entwines itself so deeply in not only Kathy’s situation and following that light right now, but they are beautiful words for anyone who has been through a loss.
