Cranberry Morning said...

Me too, Sandie. And yet sometimes things like this compel me to write. I called my daughter in Indiana and told her to hug our little grandson for me, then called my DIL in Minnesota and told her to hug my favorite 5 year old and tell him Grandma loves him. The tragedy out east is just immense and heartbreaking. I too am praying for those families.

thisisme said...

Amen to that dear Sandie. We should all hold all our loved ones dear to our heart, especially today, and be truly thankful. None of us can imagine the horror that those poor families are going through. All we can do is hold them in our prayers, and we will all do that, I'm sure. Take care my friend.

Beth said...

Prayers for them all!!

Jackie said...

Indeed. It breaks my heart to think of the little ones.

Hi Sandie, YES---this is such a terrible tragedy. Killing innocent children is lower than EVIL... Unbelievable...

Prayers for all of those folks --and for our country.

I am praying for all those involved. I can't imagine their pain. This only proves once again how badly this country needs spiritual revival.

Praying for all and holding my family, friends and loved ones close in thought today. God bless those devastated by this horrible event.

When I first heard of school shootings in CT, I thought of the little ones in our family. I'm thankful they are safe, but so sad for the families who lost their precious children.

renae said...

Chatty Sandie! hahaha! just saying; thank you for noticing my banner. and ...for thinking the baby in the red coat was sooo tute. grandmums tend to love all babies it seems. Writing on my dumb smart phone is very challenge, but i'm making it.

Hello Dear Sandie...My heart was heavy today as all of ours is. We just have to continue to pray for all those left behind.

Hope your day was good. Susan

BECKY said...

It's impossible to try to understand the horrific doings of an insane person.....so, so sad.

Crystal Mary said...

This is so hard to believe. And just prior Christmas, there will be so much hurt for the families this year. Lord I pray for your comfort, healing and peace.

ocmist said...

Yes, this is such a horrible thing and that is the only way most of us can help that poor community and the families of this tragedy.

Granny Annie said...

Still beyond my mental grasp. Prayers are steadfast.

Changes in the wind said...

Perfect post...

Lynn said...

I felt a little guilty going about doing fun things yesterday - this tragedy was in the back of my mind the whole time. It's beyond sad.

Inger said...

I posted a prayer today. I was thinking of these children and their heroic teachers yesterday and didn't even open my computer.

Starry Dawn said...

Yes, Sandie!
You can count on me to say my daily prayers for those children and their families.
They are Angels in Heaven now.
God bless you, Sandie,
and those you love!
Blessings & Prayers,
Starry.
