Taking a pause for today
The three little boys you see here are the center of my universe. Their innocent faces are the most beautiful sights in my world. I love them with a fierceness that I didn't know existed within myself. There's a certain vulnerablity in becoming a parent and loving someone more than you love your own life. I'm always thinking: What if something happens to one of my boys? What if one gets hurt, or lost, or worse? How would I live through it? I don't know if I could. Today I have to take a pause from lighthearted blogging. My heart is sick over the school shooting in Conneticut. Such young, innocent children and adults killed...it is more than I can bear. To think of these parents who sent their kids to school today, not knowing they would never see them again. I don't know how anyone could survive that kind of loss. You think your kids are safe at school. School should be a safe place.
Hug your kids extra hard tonight. If you don't have kids, hug a friend, or a loved one. And if you believe in a higher power, please say a prayer for all of these families who didn't know that this morning was the last time they would hug their own children.
