This week just seems to be dragging on and on.  Maybe it's the weather.  Maybe it's the tragic events in Boston.  Maybe it's Dan trying to get home through airport delays and flight cancellations for the second week in a row.  Maybe it's knowing we have a memorial service and funeral to attend this weekend.

Maybe it's the randomness of life that's got me feeling a little bit blue...

We try to stay present and "enjoy the day", but some days that's just harder than others.  So much sadness and angst and grief in the world lately.  It's hard to hold your head up sometimes.

But, I try to come back to the human connections.  In tragedy, people's resolve is steeled and we look to one another for reassurance.  That's the good in the world. That's the light.  Look for it.  Be it.  The future is unknowable.  Do what you can while you are here.
