These are the things I want to remember this week and from yesterday. It's been a great month for me so far, more calm and peaceful then most December's. Then another school tragedy hit yesterday, it feels like Chardon all over again. I can barely think straight to write this, my heart is broken for these poor families and community. These little ones who won't get the Merry Chritmsas they deserve and were dreaming of. The lives at Sandy Hook Elementary will be forever changed by a useless violent act, one that is happening far too often for me to handle. This isn't the conversation I want to have with my kids but it was and I have to be strong and brave for them, just keep moving forward with a heavy broken heart. My merry isn't so merry right now, all I want is to sit and hug my kids TIGHTLY and keep them safe. My mom talked with me last night about talking to the kids and what to do in this kind of situation. I was already thinking of it and talking to her just confirmed it. I want them to know how to react and not react if this happens to our schools, how to keep them safe since I'm not there to help. Schools are suppose to be a safe learning enviroment for children, they shouldn't have to fear that they will get hurt there. I am having a hard time with this one and my heart and prayers are going out to all of them. We are all hugging are kids tighter, can't wait for my oldest to get home next week so I can hug her too. I have decided to take a break from blogging to be with my family and stay focused on making this a nice Christmas for them. I want the memories from the pictures above to stay with me and not keep going back to the tragedy that has happened. I will be back after Christmas to share and talk about the New Year. Wishing everyone a joyful, peaceful, merry holidays with your loved ones. Thank you to each single one of you for being so awesome and supportive of me and everything I share here, HUGS and BLESSINGS AND PEACE FOR ALL OF YOU!! I will be checking my emails occassionaly so they don't overflow my computer, if you need to reach me. Thank you again and please ENJOY these pictures above and not the sad news that comes with them. We really have had some good times this week.
