How Can We Go On... We Just Do...

Friday morning I popped on facebook to see a status of:

What is wrong with this world? Shooting with deaths in elementary school???

Below this persons name it said: near Frostburg via mobile.

Now, even though I knew that the location was basically where the facebook friend was posting from... for a brief minute my heart dropped...   and I thought about Rissi in kindergarten at that moment.  I tried to find out more... but all I was hearing was kindergarten, shooting, and 20 deaths.

Finally, the story was playing out on the news and the location and facts were clearer.  Again, my heart dropped.  So many innocent children!  So many heros who sacrificed their own life to try and protect them!  So many lives shattered!

I cannot even try to imagine the pain...

All I can do is pray.

Yesterday was Rissi's Christmas dance recital.  Prayers were said.  Tears shed.  A lot of love in that auditorium yesterday.  I found myself wiping away tears with each performance.  What a blessing to be able to watch these children,  and to know... that by God's grace...  I was gifted another day with my own precious angels.  

Please!!  Do not stop praying for these families!!  This is all we can do to help them get through this.

And now...  the Love's of my Life...  (well, 2 of them)...  



Rissi was mostly the 3rd from the left...
