In loving memory of those whose lives were lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. 

Last Friday my Facebook feed started blowing up with news about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. I turned the news on and could not help the tears that fell down my cheeks. I just wanted to wake Parker and Avery up from their naps and just hug and kiss them - thankful that they are safe and sound. 

As a mother of 2 young kids, I can't begin to fathom what the parents must be going through knowing they can no longer hold, kiss, hug, play or read bed time stories with their little ones - their bright futures have been stolen from them. They won't get to see them attend their first middle school dance, graduate high school, get married, and have children of their own. I've been holding my kids a little closer, doling out kisses much more often, brushing my hand over their heads as I walk by, and just staring at them - thankful for each precious breath they take. 

My thoughts and prayers go to those who lost a wife, a mother, a child, a sister, a brother, a friend...
