Today a large number of us bloggers are taking a moment of silence
to honor those sweet innocent victims of Connecticut who lost their lives on
Friday. Today we are thinking and praying for these precious angels and their
families. Today we are spending extra time
with our loved ones; holding them tight and whispering ‘I love you’ in their
ear over and over again. Today we take a moment to remember all those who are
hurting this time of year because they have lost someone near and dear to their
heart. Today we stop to think, pray and love.
“Dear Blog Friends,
I am one of the many craft, cooking, lifestyle and DIY bloggers who had posts to share with you today, but the events of Friday’s shooting in Connecticut have left us heartbroken. Like you, we cried as news reports poured in and wondered out loud about how something so cruel could hurt the most innocent and tender. We not only grieved for the lives lost and wounded, but for that part of the magic and wonder of this holiday season that was taken from us all.
We love you. We pray for you. We’re so heartbroken for your loss.
To honor the memory of lives cut short, we choose to step away from our blogs and computers today to celebrate the gift of life and those we love most: our children, families, good friends and community. We’re holding our kids a little closer, reaching out to neighbors and giving thanks for the moments we have together.
Thank you for stopping by today. We hope you’ll join us in remembering, praying, and gathering close. We wish you and your families a safe and blessed holiday.”
