Hello everyone. This morning I slept in a bit…a luxury I haven’t had for some time. I was heading toward a good day with plans to whip up some Christmas goodies and plans to tackle some cleaning. After getting started gathering up things for Goodwill, we were in the kitchen when the news broke about the tragic shootings in Connecticut. My heart is broken…I can’t imagine the pain the families are going through, nor the trauma the surviving children are feeling. So many lives have been destroyed by this one, cowardly event. Whatever the reason behind this act , it does not justify the loss of all these lives. This is the season that revolves around children…and a child. Any child is precious, but so often anymore, we see events where their lives are valued so little. Hug your babies tighter tonight …..even your adult babies. They are our future, and they are our hearts and souls. It’s the season of the precious child….
