I guess there really is such a thing as being at a loss for words.
It's been a little over a week since the tragic shooting at a local high school that killed seventeen people. I've sat down to write every morning since and continue to just stare at a blank screen. Surely I have something to say about this, right? As a teacher, as a mother, as a human being with a conscience? I'm rarely at a loss for words--words are how I make sense of things. But with this...it's so BIG. In addition to trying to quantify the sadness of it all, there are so many issues that I feel played into this and it's just so entangled and messy. Where would I start? What could I say that wouldn't sound trite or oversimplified?
I'm Krissy & I'm so thankful you're here. Teacher-Mom life is rewarding but it's tough--we need fuel (& each other) to keep going. I hope this is a place you can go that feels like caffeine for the soul--uplifting & highly addictive ;) Check out the categories below and, if you like what you read, subscribe to make sure you always have good Sunday morning reading to go with your coffee :)
