If you have been struggling with broken hearts and grief for the victims from Sandy Hook School this past week please join me as we find a path together to heal and help our families who have lost so much.
The days here have been dark and raining a constant drizzle on the nice snowfall we received last weekend. So somber but in a sense so appropriate. The heavens must weep tears of sorrow for babies so innocent and the precious teachers for whom evil violence were no match.
Need I go on about Christmas being changed forever for these families.... the presents that no doubt had already been purchased... ..... my mind can't even begin to go there.
Healing from deep wounds and loss is a process. It takes time most of all but the process has a beginning. There are steps that help the mind and heart begin to mend.
Our dear blogging friend and fellow rug hooker Sarah Mcnamara from Paisley Rug Hooking Studio has links to specific funds set up to help victims families with needs to cope on her blog.
It's a good way to help and begin our own healing processes.
Lighting a remembrance candle has been a source of comfort for me in dealing with my distraught.
One small flame united with many others around the world creates a powerful energy source from which all can draw strength. I find that enormously comforting.
No matter your faith, beliefs or walk in life you can join in the process.
Our nation and world has deep and serious problems to deal with. We all want to do what we can to make things better for future generations on this planet. Perhaps the sacrifice of the most innocent and seemingly helpless among us will pave the way for great changes. One can only pray and have hopes that something of greatness and good will evolve.
Blessings this day and days to come dear readers.
Thank-you for your kind comments and continued support of one another.
