In Honor of Maddie (10/14/10 - 02/17/11)

It pains my heart to write this, but today, a friend of mine and her husband are going to bury their little girl. Their 4 month old little girl to be exact. Sweet little Miss Madison Paige Staats was born into this world on October 14, 2010 and left this world to be with her Savior last Thursday, February 17th, 2011. In her very short life, she brought a lot of love and happiness to those around her. She was a joy to her parents and grandparents and brought smiles to faces of people that didn't even know her. Here are some pictures of sweet Maddie.

In honor of this little one's life - forget about the toys all over the house, the mess in your kitchen, the water the kiddos get all over the bathroom during bathtime tonight and the meal they didn't finish. Just hug them and love them and be extra thankful for them today. There are mothers and fathers all over the world that would do anything for one more chaotic, crazy, exhausting day like that.
And say a few prayers for Maddie's family. Lord knows they are going to need all of them that they can get during this difficult time.
RIP Sweet Maddie!

I've been reading Maddie's story and I've been crying ever since. It's just so sad and seems so unfair for these things to happen.
