There are times when I have so many questions and very few answers. After the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School this past Friday, my spirit is heavy, my thoughts clouded. Cole is in first grade, he was the same age as the 20 children that were killed. My heart aches for the parents. It seems weird to know that life keeps going; people are still Christmas shopping, Cole and Nolan are still wrestling in the living room. 

I think we all kept our children close this weekend and had a harder time letting them go to school on Monday. Cole will ask me about this one day, and I am sure I will have a well rehearsed answer like when he asks me about death, divorce or other topics that are not easily understood by an adult much less a child. For now, I am struggling to understand it myself and I am trying to figure out how I can turn this hurt I feel into something good. So I pray for the children and their families and cry a little less each day. Then I hug my kids, put a smile on my face and take them outside to play. We celebrate this time we have, this moment we are all together.

Sending love to the children and families at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
