It’s been a very normal, very good week at our house. Early mornings, decent work days, family dinner every night (I don’t think this has ever happened and I am so proud and excited to make it a habit), some Christmas shenanigans, early bedtimes, and lots of sleep.
This weekend I’m going shopping with my dad (an annual tradition since I was 13 years old), visiting my uncle, attending a work party and book club, and hopefully fitting in some down time.
My sincerest thoughts and prayers are with the families involved in the school shooting in Connecticut. But this is the kind of thing that I absolutely cannot allow myself to think about because I will lose my cool and become controlled by anxiety. Looking forward to the day when there will be no more crying or pain or sin or death.
