Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

Sad Day

I know I rarely touch on politics or world events on here, but tonight my heart is heavy. As our country faces another senseless loss, I admit this is the first one that REALLY hit close to home…probably because it’s not all that far from where I live, because I’ve been at that intersection more times that I can count, because I know people who work at that facility on certain days, and because I know so many who work in law enforcement that were there on scene today. It’s senseless, awful, and heartbreaking. 

I know I held my little ones closer today when they came home from school, and dreaded the discussion with them about what happened. They knew already (they don’t have social media, but their friends do!), and it sure is interesting to see the opinions kids have even at such a young age. It’s not a conversation I wanted to have with them, but it is one that is important. We live in dark times, and they need to be somewhat prepared.

So hold your loved ones a little tighter tonight and be thankful for another day on this earth. Know God’s plan, while we may not understand it, is working all around us. My condolences to anyone facing a loss today, my heart and prayers are with you. May you find peace among the turmoil of the coming days.

With a very heavy heart,

Jules

    I’m so glad you addressed this issue as it affects all of us in so many ways. To repeat a lovely quote a friend of mine posted which I found comforting (& inspiring)….”Live every day to its fullest. Do kind things for people. Love with every fiber of your being. Help whenever help is needed. Restore others faith in humanity during this difficult time”…. Truly words to live by on a daily basis and especially at times like this
