Love Bomb

The internet is full of crazy things.  
We all know the filth that can be found on the internet, but there is also so much beauty to be found. 
Not only beauty but the internet has become a journal.

The internet is a place where people share their lives with strangers. Where people share their hopes, dreams and accomplishments. It's also a place where they can share their sadness and their worries.

You are probably reading this because you too have a blog.
You love to write about your life and you love to read about others.

But you can do more.

  Love Bomb is a project of ItStartsWith.Us. Once a week we come together to drop hundreds of love bombs (in the form of blog comments) for those who need it most. Subscribe via email below or follow on Tumblr, and join us in our missions. It only takes 5 minutes a week!

We are dropping today's Love Bomb on a woman named Katie. 

Katie was suggested by Amy, one of our team members. In Amy's own words:

"This sweet, creative girl has lost her brother and brother-in-law, and now just found out her dad likely has pancreatic cancer (and it's serious) and is beyond devastated. He had a procedure and they are awaiting test results (due on Wed.). She can use all the support she can get."

This woman has already been through so much, and she is very close to her father. On her blog she talks a little bit about who he is to her: 

"I do not know what I would do without my Dad.  What he adds to my life is not replaceable. He is always the voice of reason, the giver of wise advice and the preventer of near disasters.  Really.  For a lot of people, he is their rock."
Losing a family member creates such a painful void - please join me in comforting and loving on Katie and she struggles through all of this. 
You can comment on her blog post here.
