DSC00449I am really not sure how to start this post. In fact, I’ve started a few times and deleted what I wrote. Too trivial in light of what has happened in Paris. What is happening in our world. I want to say so many things, but none of it sounds good or makes sense. I’ve quietly choked back tears these last few days, not letting my family notice and trying to go about my day as normal as possible. But what is normal anymore?
It’s hard to think that as I sat at a favorite restaurant last Friday, enjoying a wonderful dessert with my husband at my side, horror was happening and people were dying. I just can’t imagine the pain of losing a loved one. I don’t want to imagine it.
The most sensible thing to do is to continue living and loving. To not let fear get the best of us. Yet that last bit isn’t all that easy, is it? I have a feeling that we are all still in a state of shock, saying, “I’m OK, I’m OK.” while our hearts ache and our minds try to process this all.
We need time, we need courage… and we need each other.
