Times Like This

I've been moving rather slow this morning. When awful things happen in the world, like what happened yesterday, I start to slow down and look closer. I look closer at my blessings, the things I take for granted. Like quiet mornings in my warm bed and fresh fruit and oatmeal. Like my health and family and friends. I don't know how to internalize things like this. I still haven't gotten over what happened last summer just twenty minutes from my home. I can only find comfort through prayer and the good that comes out of awful situations. I hope wherever you are, you have peace.

  4. I was thinking about peace yesterday too. It's such a blessing that I'm healthy and alive and have a great family. I am safe. And it's a perfect reminder to think about that. Also, the quilt!! So adorable. I'm on the lookout for the perfect patchwork quilt. :)

  9. Those kind of days are always difficult for me too. I'm not terribly good at processing it. I try and make sense of it, but I know I never will. I can't possibly understand why someone would want to hurt so many innocent people that they haven't even met...strange, awful days.

    I have peace, I know who I belong to.
