Yesterday, 28 people died at an elementary school in connecticut. 20 of those that died were children age 6 & 7. I can't even wrap my mind around that horror. It's only a little over a week until Christmas and those darling, innocent babies won't be at home with their families where they should be! How their parents are going to be able to deal with this, I have no idea. It seems unfathomable!
6 adults were all women teachers at the school, including the principal. They did their best to shield the children from harm; dying heros. That , however, is little consolation to their families.
What is going on with our world, where this type of horror is happening more times than I care to remember.
I will be praying for the souls of the little angels and their guardians and also,, for their families. May God give them the strength they need to go on. Amen

Livin' the dream

I've always wanted a big beautiful home, a big beautiful yard and lots of fun , exciting vacations. Well, I have a beautiful home.... average sized; a beautiful yard, but, small one and our vacations are usually family oriented, but fun. I guess one has to change their priorities depending on where life takes them. I still wouldn't turn these things down, but, I've learned to live without them. Now, I'm more thankful for good health, happy, healthy children and grandchildren and everything that comes with being a grandma.
Would I still like the things I always wanted? Sure, but, they are not my goal anymore. Life doesn't always go the way we wanted or wished for.  We have to be satisfied with what we're dealt or work hard to change the direction we're headed....
Don't know why I've been thinking about this today.  The older I get the more I'm thinking about a lot of things. I would truly like to do something different than I'm doing now. As they say... I still don't know what I want to do when I " grow up"... I would love to be doing something that I'd feel passionate about. NOt sure what that is though.... better keep thinking... I'll let you know when I come up with it.
