"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Drop on by...

and offer a little girl your birthday wishes and offer her dad your love and support. One year ago, little Madeline was born early but healthy. 27 hours later her dad Matt lost the love of his life when Madeline's mom Liz died.

I have been following Matt's story for a while now. Some complain that he has "taken advantage" of Liz's death in order to get "free" stuff for Maddie. I say to those people, BULLSH*T! He is doing his best to cope with the loss of his best friend/lover/soulmate, etc. and I think he's doing a damn fine job! Thanks for sharing his link with others! :)

I agree completely. Never once has he asked for anything. In fact, he has often turned things people intended for him (like the money from the Liz Logelin Run) over to others he felt needed it more.

I am almost afraid of clicking on the link because I feel like I am about to cry! I'm really sad and will check it out and extend my sympathy.
