It is stil hard for me to understand what happened in Connecticut on Friday. I don’t want to and haven’t seen all the television and news accounts, because it’s unbearable for me to imagine. I don’t think the reason “why?” will ever be answered.
But I do know some things. I do know I feel an incredible sadness for the precious angels and teachers who lost their lives. I do know I’m praying for the families to find strength and peace to survive their heartbreak. I do know I hugged our Girlies a little tighter this weekend. I do know I told our Girlies how blessed we are to be a family and how boundless our love for them is. I do know I told them they were the best birthday present I ever gave myself.
“Silent night… Holy night… Sleep in heavenly peace. Amen.”
