Media Monday: Remembrance

it's monday.

time for my usual media monday post.

but today i want to do things a little differently.

i want to remember and take a moment to honor those who were lost or injured this past weekend in the colorado shooting. our community here in san antonio lost a loved one. someone i'd never met, but a fellow san antonian. she will truly be missed. my heart goes out to all those who are suffering and missing their loved ones. those fighting with the strength to stand. those fighting with why this happened. loss is something that is never easy. but when a life is lost in this manner it is hard to understand. i look to my God for strength and understanding. 

it reminds me that no matter where we are or how fast life starts to go, stop and smell the roses. say i love you to your friends and family. do something unexpected and surprising for a stranger. take your time and say thank you to those you encounter each day. we do not know when our final day here on earth will be, but we can sure as heck make the best of every moment we have here.

thank you for reading along today.

take a moment of silence today for those hurting and lost.



  1. Isn't it crazy what happened? It's so scary and it doesn't even make sense! My heart is heavy.

    Have a great week, lovely!

  2. Amen.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all the communities affected by this horrible violence.
