This morning I worked on a little stitched sketch of two cats.
I was feeling very grateful for little things,
like my trusty Singer sewing machine,
my love of fabric, texture and thread,
and my ability to create.
Then I turned on the TV...
and felt so sickened by the news which was streaming -
a school shooting in Connecticut -
a kindergarten classroom -
a horrific tragedy.
As a former kindergarten teacher, I am literally shaking.
As a mother, I am heartbroken.
As a human being,
like many others,
I am asking why.
I don't usually write about religion here,
but I have to say,
may God bless the victims and the survivors of this tragedy.
May God bless all of us
as we contemplate the sadness of this day.
