I am still processing what happened in Boston. As a runner, a spectator, a friend, a mother, a spouse… it just hit a little too close to home. There are no words to adequately describe the feelings of shock, anger, sadness, fear, anxiety, compassion and bewilderment. As my youngest put so innocently “Why would anyone do something like this?”. That is exactly the question that we can’t answer.
I am trying to focus on the amazing stories of human strength and courage. The hundreds of people who helped, the first responders, the outpouring of support from across the country and world. The fact that although there is darkness in this world, it will always be overcome by the light. It is in this thought that I find peace and comfort.
So, along those lines, my pics for Wordless Wednesday this week are moments over the past few days that are just little bursts of joy and happiness. I hope they make you smile and brighten your day. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those in Boston and beyond. Sending hugs, strength, courage and love to you all.
