The news here in the U.S. is filled with such darkness and grief…
The tragedy in Colorado seems unfathomable as I sit here in the safety of my little office. Only the heartbreaking details keep coming… from everywhere, and this news has shaken me out of my comfortable cocoon.
Part of me wants to know, because I care. But the sheer truth overwhelms me. These were young people and parents like you and me
sitting at the movies
and now they are gone.
Yes, today is a day for deep reflection. No worries for me today.
Today I’m alive. By the grace of God. And if you’re reading this, so are you.
Today is a day to be grateful.
Today I will not worry about
my kid’s future
if the house gets cleaned
that my work’s not finished
if I exercise or not
how many calories something is
what other people I know are doing
what’s in the refrigerator
what I’m cooking tonight
if Stella got walked
about my blog stats
what might go wrong
if I’m being productive
if my kids are being productive
Today I will worry about
how many times I say “I love you”
how many times I say, “thank you”
