Helping a Friend

Some of my blog readers may know my friend, Brenda. She kept me happy and sane when Carl was on his mission and when I came back from mine, she had my back at all times.

Last week, Brenda's husband was killed in an automobile accident. She is 8 months pregnant with her third son. He was self employed and I know that they are going to need some financial help.

I don't have much at the moment to spare but I do have a lot of paper and an online shop and a blog that I can use to promote said paper and shop.

I made some Thank You card sets. There are six cards for $10. For every card set sold, I'll send $10 to Brenda's fund.


  1. What a kind idea. Please let your friend know that a perfect stranger is thinking of her.

  2. My heart and prayers go out to Brenda! It's wonderful that she has such a great friend as you.

  3. I've been trying to ignore this. I can't really comprehend this. This is the second girl we knew from our single days to have their husband killed in a car accident.

    The 8 months pregnant part is a real kicker. I hope she has a big support network there. It makes me so sad.

    This made me think about Sarah too. You and your friends have suffered great losses. Puts things in perspective doesn't it.

  5. Thank you all for your kind thoughts. I really appreciate it. Christy knows I'm more of a blog voyeur and I never comment, but I wanted to say thank you for thinking of me and my family.

  6. My prayers are with her right now. What a wonderfully kind thing for you to do.
