This week was a sad week for so many and I can’t help but think of the families who lost people who meant so much to them.
I couldn’t help but think of the little family from Nebraska who mirrored our family until we had our third child. One girl, one boy, a couple years apart.
I can’t even begin to imagine the depths of their sorrow along with the families of the 49 people killed in cold blood and a beautiful young woman who’s life was abruptly ended. I didn’t know much about her before this happened. I watched this video and she sings like an angel.
All taken so young and senselessly. It’s hard to understand why these things happen and I find I cling to my faith when I am overwhelmed by the world and all it’s sadness.
Why we ask?
I don’t know and I’m certain we won’t know until the end.
My wish is that people would be more compassionate instead of being mean and harsh. Thinking they could do better or know better. My words to them, “You’re lucky it wasn’t your family. It could have been any one of us and if you think differently, you’re wrong”.
The world needs Kindness. Love. Compassion.
It truly does.
Can you imagine if we tried to help or prayed for one another instead of criticizing and putting others down. The world would be forever altered for the good, speaking of good.
I had a wonderful conversation with Sister at our school and she told me something she does. She said, “I try to see the good”. See the good, think about that for a minute. Sometimes it’s hard to see the good, especially when the Country has a week as tragic as this. Be the good, God knows the world needs it.
See the good.
