Compassion BOMB

At The Sisterhood we love to take the time to surprise a woman and thank her for just being her. Because we can. We like to thank the hardworking, courageous, generous women in our community, the ones who go under the radar of everyday life. Often we do these in big campaigns where we'll send 5, 10 or even 20 at once. 

However, every now and again I will get an urgent plea for support - someone in our community is hurting, they are in need of some extra love, some cyber cuddles and a gesture to know they are not alone.


This week I got one of those calls from some friends in my Church. One of their good friends lost her little baby this week. A little six month old. Awful, terrible, heartbreaking. I cannot begin to imagine what she must be going through right now. I knew you Sisters would want me to respond, to let her know she was being thought about and prayed for, so when her friends asked if there was anything we could do I said YES straight away. Some times life is about saying YES.

I wanted to send her something simple, I chose each item from our shelves of glory  and in my own mind each item has a particular meaning and thought behind it. 

On another note:
I was thinking about how lately The Sisterhood has grown so much recently and as a result the recipients of our LOVE BOMBs are able to easily find out who we are on the internet, they then come to this blog or our Facebook page and express their thanks, often telling us many details of their lives. It would be great if we could be as encouraging with our words as we are with our gifts. When some one responds, I think it would be fabulous if we respond with kindness back. Let them know of your thoughts, your prayers for them, your kindness. Feel free to express that love for a stranger however you can. 


With your help we were able to send this hurting Mum a handmade card with the Sisterhood poem, beautiful notebook for all of her thoughts, mug with sachets and chocolates, lavender bag (which smells ah-mazing), hand made raspberry soap.

This LOVE BOMB was sent free of charge thanks to Post Haste couriers
