My Heart is Heavy

It's amazing how connected we can feel to people we meet in "Blogland".
I met Kate while she was pregnant with her twin boys. Being a fellow mother of twin boys, I immediately felt a connection. It also helped that she was friends with some of my soul sisters (Jeanette, Leigh and MB).
I laughed and nodded my head when she wrote about the crazy things people say to you when you are expecting twins. I could totally relate when she described her uncertainty of becoming a mother to two more little boys. I was shocked and worried when I read about her boys being born much too soon. I followed every post she wrote describing the joys and fears of being a mom to Liam and Ben .
She is a wonderful writer. She is so open when she writes. Her writing makes you feel like you are listening to a close, personal friend. She has such an incredible gift.

Yesterday she lost one of her gifts. My heart hurts for her. In all her sadness she was still able to share her gift with the rest of us. She is my hero.

Oh my goodness. My heart goes out to her and her entire family. Although I have never experienced pain of that magnitude, it is my worst fear. I am honestly at a loss for words right now.
