I’ve tried to sit down and write this a few times today and I am not sure what to say. Being honest, I feel like the weekend was a whirlwind! The craziness started Thursday with a mercedes and a camper and is winding down now after 7 basketball games, a delicious brunch with high school girlfriends, two Christmas parties for work, and a few workouts crammed in there.
Although it was a crazy weekend filled with friends, kids, fun, and love….there was an unmistakable sick feeling in the pit of my stomach all weekend long. I would look at my facebook page and a new post about a victim from this weekend would pop up and I would just start to cry. I am so sad for all of the families who lost a loved one on Friday. I really couldn’t even watch the reports on the news, I couldn’t stomach it. I do not want to give any attention to the killer and want to focus my prayers and thoughts for the families who lost innocent children and family members so I left the television off.
I think back to Thursday’s 9:10 class when I walked in to No Excuses to find a Mercedes and Pop-up camper parked in the gym where I was expected to teach class. The owner of the building had torn down an existing closet space and put a camper and car in its place. At that moment, THAT was a BIG deal! Unfortunately, there are things like Friday’s vicious act that puts everything in perspective. Being honest, I really don’t need or want any more reality checks to let me know that life is short and I should cherish the blessed moments I have. I get it. I have a wonderful family, a wonderful husband, 4 beautiful children, and great friends. I get it, I am lucky! But, I ask myself, why not me? Why them? Why am I so lucky to have this great life?
