Oh Come Let Us Adore Him

I know we all have heavy hearts and are likely to for a long time given the unimaginable tragedy in Connecticut.  It’s hard to be merry and bright when your heart is breaking for so many families so close to Christmas.   I take breaks from the news because with each piece of new information about the children and adults who lost their lives and the people who loved them, it stings.  I do think there is comfort in understanding that we grieve together.  My son is too young to know what’s going on and this weekend we spent some good time just being together.  He’s at such a magical age and it’s sweet to find joy in him.   

Many of us, me included, are back at work today, keeping on keeping on.  I didn’t get much accomplished around the house this weekend, but did print out and frame this free printable from AKA Design.  You can visit their site to print one for yourself.
We will continue our Holiday Cheer link party on Tuesday with Courtney (A Thoughtful Place) featuring vignettes (tablescapes and decor are okay too).  I’ll be sharing how I decorated our dining room and I’m looking forward to seeing your spaces too.  Hugs to you all today.

  1. I agree with you. Such a tragedy that has befallen this nation but it is a good thing that the nation is coming together and lifting all those affected in prayer. I hope new measures are taken in schools so this never happens again.

    1. Yes, feeling like we are all greiving together helps lift each other up. I could see the kindness in strangers' eyes this weekend as we went about our business with our kids. We are all affected.

  2. The same goes for me. It’s encouraging to see the country joining together to pray for those touched by this terrible catastrophe. I pray schools implement changes to prevent this from happening again.
