It is with a heavy heart, and a tear much too quick to come to the eye, that I prepare for Christmas in these past few days since the senseless tragedy occurred in Connecticut. The glitter of Christmas has dimmed and I have found it difficult to post about decor and things that seem so trivial in light of what has transpired. I hope that all of you out there are still celebrating this splendid time of year and dealing with the tragedy in whatever way you and your families see fit. We are…and trying to push aside our somberness of adulthood and understanding of what it all means in order to help our children feel safe and to feel that the whole world is not a big bad place.
Our hearts ache for all of those families affected, both young and old, and our prayers are sent upward to help heal all involved, both on site and around this grand old country.
