07.05.14 Red Balloons for Ryan

I cannot find the right words. Sometimes there are no right words. Sometimes there is just a community of people all wishing, wanting and praying, sending love and light and peace to those desperately in need.

Every now and then something happens that makes me want to squeeze my babies so tight and never let them go. It grounds us, away from our activities, away from our media, our work and our distractions and remember that we need to make the most of this one and precious life. To shake the goodness out of every drop.

Yesterday i became aware that Jacqui from Baby Boy Bakery lost her son Ryan in a tragic accident.

In your busy day of working, shopping, kids and living today,  please stop for a moment to help his family by sending your love and prayers or by buying this tshirt designed by IndieNook.

Or share your messages for Baby Boy Bakery on twitter using #redballoonsforryan

Hope shines brightest in our darkest moments. Keep it rad little Ryan.

    Prayers to this sweet family. This link you have that says a tragic accident only gives me an error. Do you have another link?

    I feel so saddened by this story, for a family I’ve never met, thousands of miles away. I’ve been trying to work out why, in a world filled with sad stories, this one seems more tragic. I think because looking at so many photos of Ryan you know that he was beautiful, happy and so, so loved. An awful waste of a wonderful life. Keep each other close Jacqui & Dan x

      Hi Claire, Thanks for commenting. I think there is something special about the strength of the human spirit to come together at a sad time and try and bring positive to the world. He seemed such a beautiful boy and such a sweet character. I think maybe you sensed some magic in his smile like i did. The world can be so cruel. I hope his parents can find comfort in the community coming together for them.

    So sad for this family! My nephew, 2.5 years old, just went to be with Jesus as well – trusting they are up there playing together!

      So sorry to hear that Caroline. I think it must be one pretty cool playground up there. 😉

    Love & Prayers sent. Unbearably tragic. A beautiful face that will never be forgotten. Squeeze every last drop xxx
