There’s really nothing I can say in regards to the tragedy in Oklahoma that hasn’t already been said. The question of “why” is still in my head. I am grateful that my adoption buddy, Amy M. is safe…she lives in Shawnee. You have no idea how many times I refreshed my Facebook page to see if she’d posted an update on Sunday…and then again on Monday. My friend Rachel’s in laws are safe…they live not far from the area which was hardest hit. So very lucky…
My heart breaks for the parents who kissed their children goodbye as they left for school that morning never imagining in their wildest dreams it would be the last kiss. The last hug. The last “I love you”.
Let this serve as a reminder that none of us are promised tomorrow and to take extra time to express our feelings to the ones we love most.
And in the meantime, pray hard for all those affected by this tragedy.
