And while I will write about all that very soon, it’s going to have to wait for a bit. You see, I need to ask you all to help me with something. Something much bigger than me, and something much more important than the types of things with which I usually request your assistance.

And as for what I wanted from you? If nothing else, please go to Emily’s blog and read the full story of this wonderful family, and this unfortunate situation they're going through. Please have them in your thoughts and prayers. They’ve told Emily that--more than anything else--that’s what they need right now. If you want to help out with their expenses, anything would help, and Emily has set up a “donate” button on her site.
Should you want to spread the word even more, consider linking to Emily’s post in one of your own this week, and getting the word out to your own readers. I truly thank you so much in advance for anything you do.
