What does one do when the news of the day is so difficult to bear?
When one's heart overflows with deep saddness as the latest stories unfold.
When being a parent and grandparent yourself, and being closely related to those in your own family who are teachers in school.
We go on. We spend time helping others, whether it be the older ones who need technical assistance...
...or the younger ones who could use our advice and supervision.
And, we do it all with more love, care, and attention than we ever did before, because we are made aware, once again, of what treasures they are to us.
What precious people, and how quickly all of that can change, and has changed for
one Connecticut town.
We are reminded that the lives around us, are so very special.
We pray. We thank God for those we love, and we pray for those families whose hearts have broken in hundreds of pieces, in the last few days.
Yes, that is what we do right now in our nation, in our family, and in our hearts.
And, we share our gifts with others:) "Kindness gives birth to kindness".
