I was home alone Thursday evening after a long day and very little sleep the night before. Elizabeth took the boys to grandma’s for dinner and for the first time in a long time, the house was quiet. I had it all to myself.

For a minute I really enjoyed it.

But after a short while,I got to thinking about how it would be if that silence was permanent. It began to really freak me out. It made me feel uncomfortable, and anxious imaging my life without those beautiful, noisy, messy, little boys of ours.

I couldn’t help but think of those families who have lost children to cancer and how deafening the silence must be for them.

I finished the evening pledging to myself that I would do whatever I am able, in order to prevent that from ever happening to anyone!

Please call to help the kids and families at St. Jude!
