I had big, exciting, happy, wonderful news to share today. I've received one of the best Christmas presents ever!
But it can wait.
Because during Ellie's physical therapy session today, R walked in for lunch and told me about the shooting in a school in CT.
A shooting in a kindergarten classroom. Over twenty people dead- most of them children -
children the same age as my kindergartener.
My heart aches for the grieving moms and dads and brothers and sisters and grandparents in CT.
I picked my little boy up and held him tight and I hurt that schools aren't safe for our kids.
Our prayers are with those in CT.
