Unbelievable

My intentions for my blog this morning were to hop on here(after being gone several days) and complain in a sarcastic yet light-hearted way about having no sleep last night due to my daughter having the stomach bug. I was grouchy and not happy with the way my day was going to turn out.

My intentions quickly changed when I saw the news about the elementary school shooting in Connecticut this morning. While I was less than thrilled with the idea of being stuck in the house with a sick child all day, I became very grateful as I realized just how fortunate I was to be living those circumstances. My daughter was at home, safe with me, while sadly so many other parents could not say the same.

I cannot even begin to put into words how unbelievable this senseless tragedy is. I am still trying to comprehend how someone could take the lives of an entire innocent kindergarten class. I will never be able to understand.

Please join me in praying for the parents and family members of those who were affected today. I have a friend whose little boy attends the school where this happened. He and Camryn actually share a birthday and while he was not physically involved in the shooting, I am sure there will be more emotional trauma than a 7 year old should ever feel.

While I wish I could offer some words of wisdom and healing to those affected, I know I cannot. I truly believe that God has welcomed these children into his Kingdom and there is no better place for them to be but as a parent, I know if it were to happen to my family it would be hard to accept that. It just does not seem fair.
