I believe in angels
Over the last week, I have sat down on multiple occasions to write this post and every single time I simply stare at my computer screen realizing that anything I could possibly say in words would seem so insignificant. I've come to learn that feelings and emotions come from a much deeper place than words ever could. So to say that I'm completely heartbroken for all the mommies and daddies who lost a little one to welcome home last Friday from school feels like an understatement. To say that I'm so sorry for their loss or to say that I wish this world wasn't so broken somehow just doesn't seem enough.
In any tragedy, all we really have left is love. For those lives that were lost, for those that were left behind, and for one another. While I don't have the perfect words, my heart and prayers go out to those families in Connecticut.
I am always in complete awe of the perspective that children have on life. Like, "If you're feeling blue - try painting yourself a different color." I believe that there are 26 new angels who will be helping to do just that. Painting the world a different color than blue to mend broken hearts.
If you haven't already seen this tributary video, I hope you take a minute to watch it. It touched my heart.
