the tragic events in connecticut on friday left me with a deep range of emotions and i’m not sure that there are words for such a soul-stirring event.
our weekend was full of plans…a sleepover for sarah with her two best friends that included a movie on friday night and a trip to the mall on saturday…and a special father-daughter date for leigh to see disney on ice. david and i feel very blessed to be able to hold, kiss and hug them and give them a bit of extra pampering as so many were abruptly taken from those they love. i had every intention of starting my christmas shopping sunday but instead felt a longing to stay close to my family, snuggling, watching christmas cartoons and just being in each others presence. it was a bittersweet weekend full of gratitude, love and hope. my thoughts and prayers are with those that were affected by this devastation.
