Good morning, everyone. It is a subdued weekend here in the Shannon household. The tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut has left me absolutely reeling. I look at my babies and cannot even fathom what those families and the entire town is experiencing right now. There are just no words…
In light of the horrific tragedy and devastating heartbreak 27 families are now enduring, nothing feels quite appropriate to share this week. All my issues, celebrations, and dramas are so minor in comparison. So, I am leaving this short so that you can all spend time with your loved ones and continue to say prayers to the Sandy Hook families.

Parents, the teachers, the surviving students, the entire town. It is just insane.
I think I am inadvertently doing the same. I know I haven't sat down to read very much since Friday.
I think that's what makes it so tragic – the unfathomableness of the entire situation.
I will definitely be doing the same. My own type of tribute.
Thanks, Carrie. You too.
I've definitely been struggling with reading all week so far. I can only pray that mental health will now garner the attention it needs.
I know that's right, as we all should be. A horror story for the ages.
Have a good week, Bryan!
I still feel the same way. Somber. I keep praying for those parents.
Every time I find myself without an active task, I think of those families in Newtown. I am just trying to keep busy because the news is really bringing me down.
There really are no words. It's not something any of us can begin to understand 🙁
I feel the same way. It is hard to be "funny" or light-hearted when you think of what happened at that school. I'm just going to post book reviews for awhile.
Well said. Enjoy your family today.
How very sad, tragic and difficult to understand. We live about 1.5 hours from Newtown:( No reading for me this weekend.
I think we're all reeling…
Completely understand. See you next week. 🙂
