I first heard of the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School yesterday morning, around 10:30am, as I was driving between my morning errands and listening to the radio. As the details of the shooting came out, I was filled with great sorrow for those little lives lost and the families left behind. As a mother of young children, ages 4 and 8, I can not begin to understand or imagine what those families are going through. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they grieve, and somehow find a way to move forward again. I am so thankful for my girls, and grateful for the time we have with them. I know we are not guaranteed tomorrow, and I want to make each day we have together count.
