No words

Pray for OklahomaMoore, Oklahoma was hit hard today by a tornado. “Hit Hard” doesn’t even begin to describe it but is really the only phrase I can say. The photos and video from today are beyond terrible.

I have a new mirrored nightstand to share as well as plans for future projects. That all seems trivial and meaningless right now as so many are now without a home. Please excuse this week-long break as we all do what we can for those affected by these terrible storms.

Donate to the Red Cross. Donate blood. Pray hard. I am so thankful my family and close friends are safe and sound but many can’t say the same. The next few days, weeks and months will be harder than most of us can imagine. Please help in any way you can.

You know how I know I’m getting old? My friends are going through things that I thought we were way too young to experience. Death, infertility, divorce…the list goes on and on. It makes me sad and gives me a heavy heart.

The good news is that I also have friends who have amazing things happening – babies, marriage, job promotions…that list goes on and on as well. Unfortunately, the bad news stays with me longer and as someone who wears her heart on her sleeve, is hard for me to handle. I like happy and fun, not sad and solemn.

I’m going to take a five minute break from the blog and probably most social media so I can regroup and just pause for a moment. Life is going faster than I can blink – it still gets me that its mid-October already! I’ll be gone just a week or so…don’t miss me too much. 🙂

Take a pause and break in your lives sometime soon as well – you never know when those precious people in your lives or precious moments that are happening will be gone and just a memory.
