Why do bad things happen to good people....
A few weeks ago I met Helen Jolly IRL!! at the Camp mojo retreat and she is simply a gorgeous person - speaking with her you had the sense that her family was everything to her and that life was good.
On Monday her husband was killed in a motor vehicle accident on the way home from work - just like that her life has been turned upside down. With 2 young boys she is facing this with incredible strength and determination. Watching another close friend go through this over the last 15 months I know how much heartache there is ahead and the struggles this family will face. The lose of a spouse or loved one is one of my greatest fears of mine and don't know how I would cope in this situation. My thoughts and prayers are with you Helen and your boys.
Some wonderful friends of hers have set up a Facebook page (with her knowledge!) called A Jolly good cause where you can make a small donation that will be forwarded onto the family to help where it is needed. Give up that cup of coffee today and make a donation - all donations above $2.00 are tax deductible :) Please LIKE the page and follow the link - it is the least I can do..
The scrapping community here in Australia has once again shown how wonderful and supportive it is and that is comforting to see.
