And so...

Today we're back to our things. JJ begins classes. I've taken down our fabulous cave and we'll start preparing our new set today. DJ is in a new phase for his latest project. Master Max chased away the biggest coyote of the summer last night.... the list goes on and on.

Days come and go that seem fairly average and routine, pursuing life at its best and working toward accomplishing much...then you hear the news. You may see it in the newspaper, hear it on television or perhaps the phone rings late at night. Tragedy strikes again. It's amazing how often it seems to strike these days. And each time, we're surprised. We think "That couldn't be happening!" Not to my friend. Not to my friend's mother or father or cousin... Doesn't God understand? They have so much more life to do. They have brand new grandbabies ~ or haven't seen their kids marry or grandbabies arrive... "God, they can't handle this pain" we think. We don't understand. But this we know: God is with us and one day all our tears will be wiped away.

Please visit Beloved MaMa today and leave a hug. No matter how average your day is, please take time if you can...

Thanks for the prompt. We do walk some strange roads. Perhaps our age allows us our capacity to take notice and to pause. I know it has for me.

Sending love to Sunny...

Thanks for sharing. Life is so precious and fragile. We often miss that until tragedy strikes. I'm praying for my girl Bel. Mama and her family. :)
