Normally, I wake up... smooch my little ones, snuggle, grab my coffee and turn on the Today Show. And today, I did just that. But instead of seeing ridiculous Charlie Sheen updates... I saw devastation. Tsunamis. Record breaking earthquakes. Floods. Death. There was a certain tone on the television that was a stark contrast from the lighthearted tone we saw just a few days ago when they broadcast that adorable YouTube video of that baby cracking up over ripped paper. The tone today was quiet. It was unsure. It was humbled. It was sad. So sad.
And I was holding my babies... and they were completely still. We were all just watching in complete sadness.
A day like this makes me think of my prayer I prayed a month or so ago.
And I walk around the house today with a heavy heart. And I think about the really important things in life. The "real" stuff in life.
So world... I am so saddened. And I think of you and send love and light your way. I pray that the energy of God sweeps down into the flood plains and collapsed buildings. And it comes and wraps itself around your broken hearts. And it takes us all to a better place.
