I wasn't sure I was going to blog today because in light of today's events in Newtown, Ct., it's very hard to feel joyous and festive. How can we bake cookies and celebrate the season while others are going through such a tragic time?
I was watching the news though and heard of a family who was suppose to be celebrating their son's birthday (he was a student at the elementary school). The party was going to continue on as they felt it would bring the family together during this difficult time.
So, though I am not at all comparing my silly little blog to that in the least, I decided to continue on with what I have started............albeit with a very heavy heart.
When my kids come home Sunday you can be certain I will hug them tighter than I ever have. Since they have been away at college every phone call always ends with "I love you" on both ends, and for that I am glad. Life is short as we all know. So I'm going to take solace in the fact that one of you may bake a cookie and share it with a grandchild or other family member and enjoy your times together.
Until next time............
