The love of the on-line community

People often scoff when I tell them I blog.  
They think it's silly.
My blogging addiction is even thought of as an annoying habit.  
But if you're reading this, you obviously "get it." 
Those that laugh, they don't know.
They don't know that these people we call friends-the one we've actually never met, and perhaps never exchanged more than a couple blog comments-mean the world to us.  Can pull us through some heavy stuff. 
Sometimes, they're the only ones that understand.  

The on-line community is such a blessing.  
I have seen awareness raised for numerous causes, auctions held for those struggling, and just support in the most difficult of times.
When one is struggling, the entire on-line community feels the pain. 
Because we're all in this together.  

Unfortunately, today is one of those days. 
Where the on-line community has to rally and support one of our own.  

Jacqui of BABY BOY BAKERY tragically lost her son last Friday night. 
Her three and a half year old son, that adorable little boy with a head full of red curls, ran after his frisbee into the street and was hit by a truck.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.  

Jacqui and her husband will never get to see Ryan grow up.
Never see what would become of his precious life. 
Thinking of the stillness in their life is heartbreaking.  

A request has gone out that in order to make sure Ryan's legacy lives on, post a picture from Jacqui's instagram account and tag it #redballoonsforryan  

Follow REDBALLOONSFORRYAN on Instagram as there will be an auction on Sunday to raise needed funds for the family. 

As hard as these pills are to swallow, I appreciate the reminder of what is truly important in life.
