Thoughts & Prayers Go To Sandy Hook Elementary Victims & Family

I’ve sat down several times to write this, but have never known what to say.  Honestly, I still do not know what to say, so I’m just going to type and let what comes out, come out.

Last Friday was a terrible day.  Twenty innocent, beautiful children lost their lives.  Seven adults also lost theirs.  It’s so tragic.  I have cried every day since that day.  I just can’t shake the grief.  I couldn’t imagine being one of those parents.  They put their children on the school bus, or dropped them off to school, never expecting that that would be the last time they ever saw them alive… it breaks my heart a little more every time I think of it.  And the teachers and principal who gave their lives for those babies… they are true heroes.

And then I also think about all the presents I’m sure those families bought for them… and they have to go home and look at them and they’ll never be opened… It makes me cry all the time.

There’s not a day that goes by, or an hour even, that I haven’t thought about all of the victims and their families, and I will continue going on thinking about them constantly.  I wish there was something I could do to help.  But I know that no words I could ever say would ever help.


There is a good thing going on that I would like all you crafty people who can knit or crochet to know about.  It’s called 600 Monsters Strong for Connecticut.  People are crocheting and knitting “monsters,” adorable little stuffed characters, and sending them and they will be delivered to Connecticut when they are ready to receive them.  I am going to be attempting to make a couple (attempting, since I have never crocheted anything like this before – why not start now, though, right).  They need to be received in Ohio by January 31st.  Please consider joining.  If you can’t knit or crochet, please pass this on to friends and family that may do so.  The children of Connecticut will definitely appreciate it.

To end this, I just want to say that I hope everyone takes time every day to show and tell their loved ones how much they mean to them.  You never know when it could be their last.
