As I drove to pick up Jackson from pre school I heard the news. Lives taken too early at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. Jackson told me the three things he did today (my rule before he earns IPad time) and I realized those 26 victims--innocent children and teaching professionals--won't be sharing their day with their families ever again. Ever. I keep hugging Jackson and Riley and thinking about those families. Counting my blessings and saying extra prayers.
