While I’m out taking a break and healing from surgery, some of my favorite bloggers and bestest of friends have kindly agreed to help out with an LCMF blog series:
This series will hopefully answer some of your most frequently asked questions about “what can I do?” for someone who might be needing your help or support.
Hi LCMF fans! If you are reading this, I know I love you already, because you love Lara and I love Lara. I’m so happy to pop in for Lara this week. I’m Kami and I blog at NoBiggie.
She has invited me to share a time when I have been served by someone else in a way that would make me want to pass it on or DO UNTO OTHERS.
Well, I could give you 50+ examples of this from just the last 6 months. I recently lost a baby girl. Our little Afton Jean was born 3 months premature this last November. She lived for one week and then peacefully returned home to her Heavenly Father.
It has been the most hard thing I have ever been through, but so many kind and wonderful things have happen since she passed. It has helped me so much in dealing with the grief to remember all of the kindness that we (my family and I) received during our heartbreak.
One of the sweetest things we received yet so very simple, was this little peg family that was personalized for my little family. The sweet Kim Orlandini sent it to us painted exactly like how we were dressed on the day our little Afton passed on.
It’s crazy how sometimes the most simple things can mean so much. I recently wrote an article on the BabyCenter Blog sharing ideas on how to serve or help a friend who has experienced a loss whether it be losing a baby, miscarriage, or just infertility in general.
It really doesn’t take a lot to serve others, sometimes it’s just letting them know that you are thinking of them that matters most.
I really do believe that service to others and getting out of our own heads is the key in our happiness here on earth. I love this quote:
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
Thanks Lara, for including me in this sweet series. It’s such a great reminder for us all.

Thank you so much for coming Kami! I am so FLATTERED that you would share this with my readers. I feel like I’ve been around for some of Kami’s hardest trials. And I learned I DON’T EVER DO ENOUGH FOR FRIENDS. She has been a wonderful reminder for me to get out there and JUST DO IT! Not in a Nike way. In a just call, or stop by, or send something way. Thank you for sharing all your wisdom through your trials, Kami.
