I must share this

I read Ashley's post  on Tuesday, and was instantly taken over by emotion. I felt the need to share this story with everyone. The short of it is: A widowed father wrote a book on his experiences on raising his daughter without his wife. His wife died the day after giving birth to their daughter. What an amazing story he has to tell. It's full of emotion, love, & laughs.

Check out Matt Logelin's blog to learn his story -  I'll have you know within 3 minutes of reading his blog, I ordered & downloaded the E-Book to my Kindle. I read 1/2 of the book on Tuesday night & finished it off since then. No lie. It's freaking wonderful and inspiring.

Here is the direct link to the book: Two Kisses for Maddy

Let me know what you think if you decide to read it. It's a very emotional & excellent read.
I thank God for my daughter and my husband every day. I couldn't ever imagine going through what Matt went through. It's yet another reminder that life is short and make each day count.

My two loves!


  1. I couldn't even make it through the "about" section on that blog without bawling my eyes out. So damn heartbreaking and inspiring all the same.

  2. Perfect. Going to download it today since I just finished my latest read last night. I guess I'll get ready to cry. Thanks for the recommendation.

  3. I just downloaded the book. I'm sure they'll be tears and I won't be able to read it on the train...

  4. I meant to update this and say I finished the book - I just loved it so much. What an amazing story. I hope you guys got to read it! It sure did have plenty of tears - but the whole story was just amazing!!

  5. My husband had a coworker that died about a week after giving birth, such a sad situation. She was in her early 20s and it was some sort of post partum heart problem. It happened about a month before Kylie was born so of course I was freaked out after giving birth. I don't even like to thing about it......I'll have to check out the blog and book when I am in the mood for a good cry!
