I have spent the past weekend hugging my kids as often as humanly possible while trying to hold back tears for those hurting from the shooting in Newtown. I have been spending a lot of time this past month talking about keeping a peaceful and stress free holiday season. Instead concentrating on family and enjoying my kids joy which feeds into my own. I think that this awful event reminds me of that even more.
I had planned a lot of baking posts for this week, but I plan to take a couple days off to instead play with my kiddos in the newly fallen snow. And also to remember what is really important at this time, and all times of the year.
My prayers are with all the families involved in this tragedy.
