Today I’m proud to be part of the blogging campaign to help the Community of Newtwon, CT and the Sandy Hook Elementary Tragedy. Today I’m dedicating this post to all of those effected by this terrible tragedy.
As I sit here and ponder what to write there are no words that come to my mind that could ever be important enough for you to read when it comes to this terrible event. I’m at a loss. Every time I think about it tears come to my eyes and I wonder why? Oh why could this happen? We’ll never know the answer. The only thing that will get a family, friends, nation, or world through this is all pulling together, leaning on each other and supporting each other. It’s times like this that make someone stop and realize how much in life is so precious and can be torn away at anytime. Why does it take a tragedy to do this to a person? I vow to hug my family closer every day and remember that they are precious. That they are important. So important that the house cleaning, errands and other stuff can always wait. This is something I personally struggle with. You never know when something will change. Play a game, read a book, make a snack and just listen and love them. That’s really the most important job as a parent isn’t it?
If you are looking for a Christmas treat to make with them this recipe would be perfect. Let them plop the peanut butter on the pretzels, smoosh the pretzels together or dip the pretzels. Kids love to part of cooking and baking. I have many precious memories with my niece baking and hope to make those memories with Miss K. Don’t worry if they aren’t “pretty”. They are made with LOVE. That in itself is the reason of the season.
Please take a moment to think of those that are still heartbroken from this tragedy and will be missing part of their hearts forever. If you are so inclined I have a button on the side of my page where you can make a donation to the Newtown Youth & Family Services whichi s a 501(c) (3) Non Profit Organization. Newtown youth and Family Services also has a link to the United way if you prefer to donate there. There is no dollar amount to small. Whether it be $5, $10 or $100 let’s all come together and support those in Newtown. You never know when you’ll be the one that needs the support.
Go kiss your hubby, your kids or your parents. Tell them you love them. Count your blessing….
