I just haven’t known what to write about this week.

Posting about trivial subjects like furniture, restaurants, and books has seemed inappropriate, somehow.

But I’ve been at a total loss regarding what to say about this horrible, senseless tragedy. My mind feels numb and I can’t begin to process how or why this happened.

Our good friend was there running the race, but thankfully he was uninjured. Others, of course, were not so lucky. 

I saw a photo this morning of the eight-year-old boy who was killed in the blast, and my heart just hurts. 

And I feel selfish. Because the overriding thoughts making their way through my muddled brain are how thankful I am that my own loved ones are safe and secure. 

Many in Boston are not so lucky. And I cannot fathom the depth of their pain. 

All I can do is remind myself how precious each and every moment is. Our time on Earth really is short… for some shorter than we ever expected. Take time today to tell someone how much they mean to you. 

That is all.


  1. Beautiful post...and I agree--this week just seems strange. everything seems somewhat unimportant when compared to this senseless tragedy!

  2. Amy Poehler did a great segment on this idea of of looking away or hitting mute or clicking over images that you "just don't need in your brain," without shutting our hearts:

  3. evil things happen in the world everywhere, every day. always seems to hurt worse when it's closer to home. prayers going out!

  4. I know what you mean, I felt bad even posting anything on my blog! How many kids have to die in America?!!! Especially after the school shooting, I was just bawling my eyes out reading about the guy in the pic that had lost his legs, he was in the pic with the guy in the cowboy hat who had rescued him.. the guy was only 27 and the guy in the cowboy hat who saved him was there passing out american flags b/c he had lost one of his son's in Iraq and another son to suicide. I was just bawling!!! And then you read the news and hear more and more bad stuff, it's just such a crazy world we live in!


Talk to me, Goose!
