Special FYBF dedicated to Lori

Today I’m hosting a special edition of Flog Yo Blog Friday here on Wanderlust. This is usually hosted by Lori at Random Ramblings of a SAHM (and was created by Brenda at MummyTime). As many of you may know, Lori’s family is in crisis right now. Her husband is in the ICU fighting for his life. Lori is a dear friend of mine. She has stood by me this past year as my own life fell into crisis. I am broken up by this news.

Here is what I’d like you to do as you link up today:
  • If you haven’t already, please read Lori’s searing and heartfelt post from last night (it’s first on the Linky) and leave a comment of support for her.
  • Send your prayers and/or good vibes to her and her family.
  • Link up for Lori. Let her know you were here.
  • If it is within your means, consider donating some money to help her family through this difficult time (her husband is the breadwinner and regardless of the outcome, this will be a rough financial ride for them). There is a paypal widget on the sidebar.
  • Spread the word about the Linky so she can have as much support as possible at this time.

The rest of the Linky instructions are below. Thank you so much for your kindness and support.

We love you Lori. We're rooting for you, babe. Stay strong. xo

The Rules (according to the big boss)

  1. Follow my blog, the Random Ramblings of a SAHM. I never seem to get to reading all the links here. But believe me, I try. Not that any of this is my idea anyway- FYBF is MummyTime's brainbaby. I stole it.
  2. Grab the bubbly button and post it on your sidebar.
  3. Link your First Name and/or Blog Name and URL of your post or blog.
  4. Add a short description (max of 125 chars). It could be a description of yourself, your blog or a teaser to your latest post.
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the love).
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well).
  7. A new and fresh link list will open every Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list does not carry over to the following week.
  8. And lastly, have lotsa fun. I mean it. If I detect anyone not totally loving the awesomeness, I will bump you off the linky list. (Joking) (Kinda).
  9. Ripping off my stuff- including these rules- makes baby Jesus cry. If you are doing your own blog hop, please write your own rules. You know who you are.

  7. Thank you, thank you. Your support of Lori (and so many others) has been so appreciated by many, including me. When I read her post this morning, my heart broke. And I wondered, what on earth could I do? But now I've donated a little something, and will write a post today and dedicate it to Lori. Also, I haven't had the privilege to introduce myself. I'm Kym and I've already had a chance to read just some of what you've been through this year. My heart goes out to you too. xx

  10. I can't believe it! I missed FYBF cause am in holiday mode and came across Brenda's email via the Mummy Bloggers and just stared.
    I can't believe it.
    This is horrible news and heart breaking. So now all I can do is keep Lori's website up and stare at it and send positive energy. Thank you Wanderlust for bringing this to our attention ... and for the support you continue to give to those around you.
    Cyber hugs

  11. Actually the email was from you! Not Brenda. Whoops. Another thank you ...
    And more hugs

  12. Sorry to hear about Lori! We are all thinking/praying for them!

  13. Was out all day, driving home tonight thinking about Lori and wondering if she had done a FYBF. NEVER expected to be greeted with this awfully sad news. You are such am amazing, consistent and innovative vehicle of goodwill, Kristin.

  14. I wasn't able to comment for some reason on Lori's blog but sent her an email.

    Sending prayers and hugs.
