So often we wish each other peace during this season.  May we all find some measure of peace.  I want to say that even knowing that for too many that will be beyond elusive.  Where is there shelter in this storm?  My heart aches.  Pictures of the Sandy Hook victims reduce me to tears and I only want to hold my little ones tightly.

I have visited these words from One Day at a Time so often in the past few days.

May we all stay strong.


  1. I am right with you trying to make sense of this horror. The following quote from Robert Brault on his post this morning gives me hope.
    "A senseless tragedy remains forever tragic, but it is up to us whether it remains forever senseless"
    We must act.

  2. It is just impossible to come to terms with in my heart... I don't think I could survive it.

  3. You can survive anything. It takes faith, trust, hope and living in the present moment. There is help for the families. They will get through it.
    Cheers from Cottage Country!

  4. To lose a 6 year old child to such horror, I am not sure that I would want to survive it. My heart goes out to the people of Newtown. Its not going to be OK, for a very long time.

  5. So, so sad. I've been beyond words. How could any parent recover from such a loss.

  6. I am sad and angry and desperate and I didn't even lose anyone in that horror.

  7. Yes. I have bee incredibly moved by the tragedy and the aftermath. Strength is what we need.

  8. May the time you spending Florida be what you hoped for. Why do you leave before the Christmas holidays with the family?
    Yes your little guys cheeks are very adorable. So glad you went to see his school performance.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
