Were you awake all last night like me because of the shooting?  My heart is broken!  I weep with all of you!  Why?  I have no words.  My prayers go to the families, friends, school, and community at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It’s a reminder of how fragile life is!  A reminder that as educators we are blessed to share a little joy with children.  A reminder of how important it is each day to love them and cherish them and sing and dance and read them a story and hold hands and play outside and give them a happy memory!  In my heart I know they were in kindergarten and it doesn’t get any better than that!
Little angels, I hope you are singing a happy song in heaven now!


  1. You are right there are no words... It is good to see your post today and a gentle reminder of great things ahead.

  2. I had to take a sleeping pill to help myself sleep, because my mind kept replaying that awful scene. I just kept thinking about it over and over. Those poor cherubs, and that poor teacher! Those poor families! I am just heartbroken over it all.
    God bless them all, and comfort them. I have been praying for them, too.
    I know that they are all safe now in God's care and in His loving arms.
