We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends

I had no idea that blogging would bring friendships to my life. How can friendships be formed without having coffee together? How can friendships be formed without knowing the sound of someone's laugh?
I was a skeptic. 
I was wrong.
I have an amazing tribe "in real life."
Now, I also have an amazing tribe in the blogosphere. We check in daily, we cheer in CAPITOL letters, and from our own little corners of the world, we rally for each other.
Today, our sweet blogging sister is burying her husband. Courtney (Our Small Moments) and her children lost Scott to cancer. Scott was 34.
Today, we rally for them. 
Today, we reach out in a small way to show solidarity for Courtney's family. 
Today, we take a swing at cancer.
Today, we show that Small Moments are big moments.
Here is how you can help, too. In Memory of Scott.

  1. I've heard your laughter- and it's glorious. I miss you roomie! Amazing what a group of women can accomplish together, isn't it? We will do whatever we can- together.

  2. I can't imagine what my life would be like without my husband. All that we can do for her is be the rock she needs right now and pray for healing. You're a good friend Kerry. Courtney and her young family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. I gave my husband a haircut and instead of my usual grumbling, I kissed his head. Heart is breaking for Courtney.
      Thank you, Stacia.

  5. So young, cancer is an evil evil devil. I lost a cousin to it at the young age of 24 in 2008 and then another cousin at the young age of 37 in 2011. Courtney and her family are in our thoughts and prayers. Keep your head up Courtney.

  7. I read the first paragraph and was already thinking about what a loser I am. Then I read the rest. Can't really complain about much when I'm still here and (sorta) healthy.

    Is asking you to @ me on twitter if you reply too much? Blogger doesn't send me reply notifications. :(

  8. You know what I love so much about your writing, Kerry? You are able to say in such few words what it takes most people entire paragraphs to express. And what you say is always so honest, authentic, and moving - whether it makes me laugh, think, or cry. Small Moments ARE big moments, now more than ever. I love you and our tribe.

    1. I'm glad that my intent translated. I sat at my computer for so long, no words could describe this heartbreak. Thank you, Beardy.
