This whole Virginia Tech thing has really shaken things up around here. Jaime recorded the convocation that played last Tuesday, but we haven't yet watched it. I think mostly we are waiting to let some of the emotion fade so that it will not be such a downer. That is not to say that we do not want to deal with the emotions, but I think this hits a little close to home right now.
When I find that I am feeling weighed down by the whole tragedy, I have decide that I must reach out to someone and do something positive. Someone on the radio the other day said that, "Darkness cannot overcome darkness." I will try to reach out to someone in someway each day so that perhaps light may overcome darkness.
For anyone reading (and I think that this is probably Jaime and two of my sisters) I wanted to write a couple of thoughts.
Times like these give us a lot to think about. I find myself thinking about my family a lot lately. I know that we say it and show it often, but sometimes we need to do it a little more. Jaime...my heart burns when I think of my love for you. I am nothing without you. I have no purpose without you. I love you so much. Boys...you are the best boys ever! I love you guys so much. Keep learning from your mom, she is the smartest and best woman that I know. Mom, Dad, Sue, Jenny, Chris, Sally, Karen, Ricahrd, Liz, Lori and all significant others and kids, etc. I love you guys. I think of you all the time. Geography seperates us but does not keep our hearts from being connected. I love you all.
