This one is a hard post to write tonight. My heart is torn in so many ways, my mind still numb from current events.
Last night, as my city celebrated winning the Cup, another city was in shock over an attack, the brutalist of modern history. Here I was, just living life, tweeting, blogging, watching the game…trying anything I could not to have to think. Not to think of words. Not to think what if it had been someone I loved. Not to…anything.
On the day after the verdict of the Zimmerman Trial, I have a heavy heart. Social media has been a mess. Greg and I were out tweeting happy things, not realizing a verdict had been met, then all of the sudden caught up with life and we both got pretty quiet for the rest of the evening. In my head, I kept repeating, “It’s 2013, right?”.
I have many wishes for you, but one of the biggest wishes I have for you is this. Love. And love with all your heart. Let that love shine to your family, your friends, your teachers, your bosses, your neighbors, the people you don’t even know.
Tonight, I have to tell you, I have a bit of a heavy heart.
I mean, we had a great day today cleaning our house and organizing our hobby rooms. Meanwhile, many homeless women, men, and children wish they had a house to have to clean.
I got to pick up toys with my daughter. Meanwhile, some moms and dads would give anything to watch their daughters run and play, and probably wouldn’t worry if a few toys were on the floor (like Lynzie‘s parents).
Take a moment to pray with us for strength and healing for my cousin T. Cancer sucks, but we are fighting for you!
This afternoon, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake hit the VA/MD area and here in The ‘Burgh, we felt shakes from it. At first, my boss didn’t believe me when I said the building was shaking, but then we watched in awe as his PC proved me right. Our first reaction was to get to the door and see what others felt. I could see plants shaking above my desk. A co-worker confirmed the quake.
Cell service (atleast texts) was down, so my “did you feel that?” to Mr. Burgher went unnoticed. After a few minutes, I called and talked to him, he saw my fb post about feeling it. Sadly, he didn’t feel it at the house, but I see it as a blessing. Our old house on the hill must be built on solid rock, a firm foundation.
Today is a guest post from my friend Eliz (of SC and Yup, we’re having twins). Enjoy!
Since Bex and Greg are off on a mini Vegas vacay, i thought i’d share my thoughts on the Willis(north) 4.
I’ve known becky through 5 years and we’ve both changed immensely. We’ve had our share of ups and downs, but we’ve both made it through, and are better people for it. I’ve seen Becky change the most since Greg entered her life. They are truly a perfect pair. Arianna and Evan have just made their circle of love bigger, better, and stronger. Here’s what I’ve learned from them:
