I am just feeling down this Christmas! I am loving experiencing all of the excitement of the holiday with Liam and Gavin, but outside of that? Just kind of bummed. Ryan is working through the entire holiday which has been frustrating, and a lot of work for me. But on top of that I've just felt like this ever since those children lost their lives in Connecticut. This morning Ryan texted me that he would probably be home late from work, when I asked him why and when, he texted back "turn on the news". It turned out this was the reason . When he did come home and fill me in on what happened I just couldn't handle it. Two families in my neighborhood just lost their loved ones on Christmas Eve in a completely heartless crime. Its true that firemen know when they take on the job that they are putting their lives at risk, but not in this way. These things are all weighing heavy on my heart today, so I might have to fake it a bit when I decorate cookies with Liam, but I'm hoping that tonight as the kiddies perform the nativity in our living room that a little bit of the light of Christ can shine through and help me go to sleep a bit more light. More importantly I hope the families here in Rochester who have suffered these losses today can feel the comfort of Christ and their Heavenly Parents tonight.
