A Parent's Worst Nightmare

Earlier this week, a tragedy happened to a fellow blogger, mom. Every (non-psycho) parent's worst nightmare. I have never met Shellie, though I do follow her on Twitter, but my heart goes out to her & her family for the loss of her 2 yr old son.

I have been fortunate enough to have never felt the pain that they must be feeling & I get teary just writing about it, & the thought of losing my one & only (pain-in-the-ass, beautiful, creative, smart, wonderfully weird) daughter.

There have fights & people attacking online about what happened that I have been lucky enough to catch only the slightest breath of, that I think are ridiculous. A mother has lost her baby, I don't care what you think is wrong with the story, that is the bottom line. If you don't have anything nice to say, just shut the fuck up.

I've never been a purveyor of pretty words, I'm more seaman than lady, & that is my bottom line right now: If you can't be supportive, if you can't be nice, just fuck off.

In case anyone should pass this along to her:
Shellie, you don't know us, but my husband & I are both so very sorry for your loss. A piece of my heart has broken for you & your family. I'm not good w/words, so *hugs* to you all.

Peace & Love
