When the Newtown shooting happened, I didn’t know what to say, so I didn’t say much. But I felt it deeply and ached for those people. And now Boston. The terrifying heartbreak that continues to unfold leaves me at a loss for words. Hearing about children that have lost their lives or are injured takes on a new level of sadness when you have experienced any kind of loss of a child. At least for me. Just makes you feel it deeper and makes your heart break just a little bit more.
After loss there’s a tendency to fear the worst catastrophes are lurking around every corner. When catastrophe strikes it just exacerbates those feelings. Yesterday Elie flew overseas to be with family for a celebratory event. All day I had irrational fears. Was so grateful to hear his voice on my phone leaving me a message that he’d landed safely.
I hope everyone who reads this is safe and sound with their families this weekend.
Sending love and light to the people in Boston. And in Texas.
