I'm not giving up on my 12 days of handmade Christmas ornaments. But I am taking a hiatus for today.
After hearing the terrible, tragic news from Connecticut today, I simply can't celebrate. All I can think about are those poor sweet little children won't be opening the presents that are almost certainly already wrapped and waiting for them under their Christmas trees. My heart hurts for all of the families who are having to go through something that nobody should ever have to go through.
So today, I'm just hugging my sweet baby a little tighter and sending up a prayer. That's all that feels right for the moment.
