A Heavy Heart

I was all set to talk about the fabulous week I had and the Christmas parties I attended, and all the shenanigans that go with the holidays, and about a special email I received last night.  But now is not the time for such a post.  Now is the time to grieve, to pray, to come together as a nation, to hug your children, your nieces and nephews, extra tight.  Now is the time, to tell your loved ones that you love them, to embrace them, to forgive, to not harbor ill will.  Now is the time to appreciate or your life.  There's enough madness and chaos going on in this world of ours, let's not add to it, by getting involved in meaningless debates on gun control or politics or blame.  NOW IS NOT THE TIME.  I'm so incredibly sad today.  I want to cry, but can't.  The tears just won't come.  I'm crying on the inside.  I just feel heartbroken.  Those poor children, the brave little girls and little boys.  The ones that won't be home for Christmas, or ever again.  It breaks my heart.  What is going on in this world?  What is  going on???

Tonight, when you get home, hug your wife, your husband, your kids. your siblings, your parents, whoever holds your heart, hug them for every parent that won't be able to do that anymore.

Yvonne, what a great from the heart and yet sad post.

My personal belief is that when we cry openly or just inside ourselves, God cries with us.

Don- yes, I truly believe he cries with us, too.
