Bits of Sweetness: After the storm

After the storm

I wanted to write a little more than just a photo on the tragedy in Connecticut. I cannot even begin to fathom what the parents of those 20 sweet children are going through right now. I really cannot. So many things swirl through my mind- a great sorrow and pain at the loss, sadness at the horrific thing Adam Lanza did, fear for safety anywhere. But, with those thoughts come a few more- all is not lost. The sun will come up tomorrow. It always does. There might be some dark clouds that linger, but the sun is always there; sometimes it is just hidden and we have to look a little harder to find it. I am so incredibly sad for the parents who lost their sweet babies, but I am thankful for the time they had with them and the memories that they have to look back on. I am thankful for the people who are stirred to compassion and who do great things because of it.
Someday there will be a world with no more pain and tears. I cannot wait. Until them more, I am clinging to my own babies a little more, spending a little bit more time with them, saying yes more often, and making a point of making more memories. I don't want to regret if tomorrow is the last day.
