“The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore, absolutely and irretrievably lost.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
I had a post about baby leg warmers scheduled for today, but I just didn’t feel right about sharing it when I can’t stop thinking about the tragedy in Connecticut. So instead, I am having a day of silence. I am going to spend the day thankful for every second I have with my family, and hope and pray and send all the love I can muster to the families in that community. I would be lying if I said I didn’t bubble up with hatred every time I think about the person who committed the senseless act, but I will try not to focus on that. Not today. Today, I vow to love every moment. Every ache, every pain, every argument my children have, every story about Pokémon, every meal I have to prepare, every cry, every laugh, every mess, every everything. I will love it all today, because today we are all still here, we are okay, and we are together.
