    I had some news this morning that has me sat here in tears. A lady I know has just lost her little girl to sma at only 6 months old :cry:. I don't really know what to say about it all tbh but one thing I do know is that it's really brought home to me that I'm such a lucky woman to have 3 healthy happy children.

    R.I.P beautiful little Ally

    Oh my god thats so awful. Im so sorry to hear that.
    I lost a good friend of mine a couple of weeks ago to cancer. He was 32. I thought that his life was cut too short. BUt a baby?? Thats really tragic. I firmly believe that she has gone somewhere much better. Her poor poor mother however is going to need all of her freinds around her. God bless to you all.

    This strikes a particualr chord with me as my littlun is 7 months. The thought of losing him now.....unbearable. Obviously I don't know the person but I pray they pull through this terrible time.

    So sorry to hear your news \emma. When a little one goes, I reckon they were just too good for this world.

    Sympathy to you and your friends. :(

    I know, god only takes the best ones eh. It's just especially hard to take when they're so young :(.

    My children are 5, 3 and 1 and it just makes me feel so lucky to have them.

    The only comfort is she'll never have to suffer.

    I hope you're ok Emma. Indeed things like this make us count our blessings. My friend's Dad died this morning following his battle with prostate cancer. Just over a year after losing my Dad to the same disease.
    Life is so very precious. Just makes me realise how important it is we look after ourselves.
    Take care.
    Love and prayers xx
