Like many of you, the past few days have left me at a loss for what to say. Or what to think. But not at a loss for how to feel.
Dan and I had a weekend getaway planned this past weekend, just a half an hour out of town, and we decided to go ahead with it, with assurances from Aidan and Cole that they were okay with us going. They were and so we went.
We spent Saturday night in Stillwater, Minnesota, at an old hotel on the St. Croix river, drinking wine, talking, crying… connecting to the profound sadness that life offers at times, and the overwhelming love, and the infinite blessings.
I still do not know what to say. I am still overwhelmed at the grief I feel and I cannot imagine how these families are able to cope.
I only hope they can feel the hopes and prayers of not only an entire nation, but the entire world.
I designed a simple card with a quote from Mr. Rogers that I read on Facebook over the weekend. It gave me comfort to think of all that light in the world; the good and the true; the hope for our humanity to grow and shine.
If you'd like to download this card for your albums, by all means, please do.
