Help A Mama Out

Have you ever read a blog post and found yourself smiling or maybe crying? I experienced both yesterday as I read what some of my favorite bloggers were doing for another amazing blogger, QuatroMama of 4tunate.net.

Jen, the lovely author of 4tunate, is a wonderful person. An amazing woman of God. A giver. She’s a joy and inspiration to read, and I’m so thankful that the Atlanta #sisterchicks introduced her to me (via Twitter of course). They had the pleasure of meeting her in person at Blissdom this year. Sadly I did not go to Blissdom, and I have been despondent about that ever since. I have only had the pleasure of reading her posts and tweets. And, I enjoy her immensely. You should check out her blog – seriously.

Unfortunately, Jen has hit a rough patch in her life. She has four three-year-old boys who have all been sick. I can’t imagine four three-year-old boys running around my house can you? She’s been sick. Her extended family is having health issues. It is one of those situations that makes you just want to reach out and hold her and cook for her and help her with the kids and do her laundry. Can you tell I’m a doer? However, Jen doesn’t live anywhere near here or near any of the other #sisterchicks who have adopted her into their group. What to do?

I’ll tell you what the #sisterchicks did. They got organized, and they’re raising money via their blogs to get frozen meals to her and to fill her pantry. Isn’t that AWESOME!!! Like an AMAZING idea! I thought it was so TOTALLY FABULOUS that I had to tell you, my readers about it. You can read about it on any of the #sisterchicks blogs, who are all linking up to each other. OhAmanda has a fabulous picture of Jen so you can see who we’re helping.

That’s right WE’RE helping. As in you and me and whomever else we can get to donate. Just pop on over to OhAmanda and hit the little button to donate. They’re asking for $4 to Help A Mama Out. That’s it. $4. That’s less than a Venti Latte at Starbucks. I know, I’ve bought plenty.

Thanks in advance for your help for this fabulous Mama. Her story just really stirred my heart and made it hurt. I hope it touches yours too.
