An Emotional Day

Tragedy came to the forefront for me today. None of it touched my life directly except through the emotion I shared in the process.

Earthquake torn China. The numbers are staggering and hard to get my head around.

Windsor, Colorado. Close to home....very close to my alma mater. The huge tornado that struck was devastating to towns all over Northern Colorado.

The Chapman family. One of my favorite singers...who I saw for my birthday...lost a daughter in a car accident in which one of his sons was driving. The girl was 5...just like my Trina. I've wept quite a bit over this...

Just when I think I'm pretty drained on emotion, the tears come fresh.

On top of it all...tonight, my sweet girl asked how babies get into mommies tummies. We had a great talk...she is SO smart and funny.

Now for some ice cream, and some sweet sleep.

I hear you loud and clear - emotional day for me, too, for basically all the same reasons. I didn't really know what to write about it, though, and it's been a busy day, which is good, I guess. Eric's family in Windsor (and their home) are safe.
