My thoughts...

This morning I got to run for the first time is 10 days.
I wanted to run at least 10 miles, but only did 5. My foot started hurting, so I decided to be smart about it, and stop before it got worse. I don't want to take this many days off ever again.

I watched the tragedy in CT unfolding yesterday. But I was distracted all day and had a lot going on, so didn't really have a chance to let everything that happened soak in. Of course I was on the verge of tears all day though.
 This morning as I was running, it was lightly raining, and I just let the tears flow. My heart is just broken. It's hard to even process what those babies went through. As my tears mixed with the rain, I felt like heaven was crying with me.
 I'll never understand why. But I know God is good, and I just pray He comforts all of those families affected by this.

    I'm glad you stopped running once your foot was hurting. Better to be safe about it, right :)

  7. It is absolutely heartbreaking and terrifying. As an elementary school teacher myself we have lockdown drills all the time, but I know that there is really no way to prepare for that and have no clue what I would do if a gunman game into my classroom after my babies. I'd like to think I'd do everything in my power to protect them.
    Such a horrible thing my heart is heavy for the families, the school, and the community

    1. Abby, I've wondered how this whole thing affects school teachers. I know we're all heartbroken over it, but it must hit closer to home for you. I love the story coming out of the one teacher who died protecting her kids. So sad, but what a hero.

    2. Such a terrifying story and yes, such a hero. I wonder if instinct would take over and I'd do the same. I pray I never have to find out. Every school in our district had mandatory safety meeting after school.
