Matt Logeline

A friend of mine showed me this blog that belongs to Matt Logeline a guy who lives here in So Cal. At first I was like cool? But then she explained why I should read it. Matt lost his wife on March 25, 2008. The day after she had given birth to their daughter. She stood up....had a pulmonary embolism, and died in her hospital room. That was about a year ago.

I went back and read through his entries starting at the birth of Madeline, his daughter, up until recently. The way Matt writes is so raw and honest. You can tell he's mourning and hurting for his wife, yet he loves his daughter so much, he'd do anything for her, like continue with life. Its beautiful to see how much he loved his wife and the support he has gotten from friends and family. His blog is also a reminder of how important it is to cherish those closest to you.

He has a link to his photos on flickr and there is this beautiful photo of his wife meeting Madeline for the first time after her c-section. I sobbed because I remember when I met Riley after my c-section. I'm so blessed to have my daugther and to have my husband.

I encourage you to read his blog. Say I love you more. And say a prayer for Matt and Madeline.

I heard about this guy a year ago. My heartaches just to think of his loss, but what an incredible man. This little one is so blessed to have an amazing father and a mother who gave her life for hers.

This does make me want to go and kiss my hubby.....NOW!!

I've been reading his blog for quite some time now and it's been heartbreaking to read, going through my own type of grief, but some of the things he's written I can relate to 100%

I've been reading Matt's blog since Madeline was just a month old. Madeline was born just 3 weeks after Olivia, so I've always felt attached to his story because our daughters are the same ago. His blog is a daily read of mine - and I, like you, enjoy the sincerity behind each post. What an amazing guy, trying to battle through such excrutiating emotions.

Yes, he has an incredible blog.

I am curious though, I you get permission to use his picture on your blog? Just an FYI as many blogs have strict copyright laws.

Although, I'm sure it's not a big deal, probably better to error on the side of caution.
