Moment of Silence

I am one of the many craft, cooking, lifestyle and DIY bloggers who had posts to share with you today, but the events of Friday's shooting in Connecticut have left us heartbroken. Like you, we cried as news reports poured in and wondered out loud about how something so cruel could hurt the most innocent and tender. We not only grieved for the lives lost and wounded, but for that part of the magic and wonder of this holiday season that was taken from us all.  We know that no words, no gifts, no acts of service will ever take away the pain, but we, as bloggers and parents collectively, want those affected by this to know how close to our hearts they are:   We love you. We pray for you. We're so heartbroken for your loss.  To honor the memory of lives cut short, we choose to step away from our blogs and computers today to celebrate the gift of life and those we love most: our children, families, good friends and community. We're holding our kids a little closer, reaching out to neighbors and giving thanks for the moments we have together.  Thank you for stopping by today. We hope you'll join us in remembering, praying, and gathering close. We wish you and your families a safe and blessed holiday

    Thank you for being respectful for the families of the tragedy on friday. One blogger I will not name asked her followers if she should stop blogging for the day or just keep posting recipes and such as usual. To my horror and shock they said to just keep blogging that one day of not blogging won’t make one bit of difference to the families and we need to move on. Such coldness. That she had to ask spoke volumes to me. There should be no question in regards to this matter whether it’s your children or someone elses.
