Saturday, I decided that I needed to smother my children in everything Christmasy. We celebrate Christmas in my family, and we make a big deal about it. We made special handprint ornaments, we baked a million treats for all of our neighbors, we watched a jillion Christmas movies, had a slumber party on the couch, went and saw Santa Clause, saw Christmas lights and everyone ended up in my bed last night.
There is a need for me right now to pull everyone I love dearly close to me.
I cannot really speak about Friday, yet. I do not have an opinion. I’ve taken a break from Facebook and Twitter except to post photos of my children. I’m having a hard time reading anything about it on the news. I don’t know what that means, but I’m choosing not to address what happened, right now. I think it means that I still cannot wrap my head around it. And I’ll leave it at that.
So my posts this week will be geared towards holidays, giving back, fighting cravings, and family. I will not be writing about issues, or my fears for the future, or what has this world come to, or opinion pieces on what needs to be done.
I continue to offer my prayers daily, sometimes hourly for all the families affected by Friday’s events. My heart TRULY goes out to everyone involved.
