I try not to get too personal on this blog because I want this to be a place of inspiration, but sometimes things are too big to ignore.  This week has weighed heavy on my heart.  It is hard to put into words how deeply saddened I am by the events that took place in Boston on Monday and are continuing this morning, as well as the tragedy in West, Texas.  I cannot imagine the immense loss and hopelessness that people who were directly impacted and are still being impacted by both events are feeling right now.  In times like these, it is hard to go on with our day-to-day lives and not think about these people.  This week I have been finding solace in little moments that I am grateful for, where it is obvious how much good  there is in this world.  I hope that the above picture brings some sense of comfort to everyone that is feeling shaken by this week's events.  I will be praying and thinking about all of you.
