We have relocated to a house full of boxes, laughter, and little feet running.
It is not lost on me that my children are alive and well; oblivious to today's tragedy. My heart goes out to the parents, faculty, emergency responders, and witnesses involved in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary - may peace and love surround you as you work through such a horrific time.
I cannot begin to imagine the grief with such a thing, and I never want to. I know my children will not live in naivety, but I want to prolong it for as long as possible.
The Christmas gifts that will remain unopened; the laughter and child play that ceases; my heart is broken for the families involved.
Love your little ones (and big ones); we are not promised a tomorrow.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. -Matthew 5:4
