sunshine on such a happy day


We had a great family day in the sunshine. Walking, park, picnic and frozen yogurt.

Plus too much T.V.

In  a more somber subject I am still processing the death of Bin Laden. I can’t say that feelings of relief aren’t here…but I am also sad. He was just a human. He murdered countless people in the name of hate. Horrible, unimaginable and something I don’t want to even try to wrap my mind around. With that said, I can’t help but feel like we are all celebrating the death of a man that was the spiritual pawn of a certain time. Jesus saw him as he was dying and still accepted him. Jesus chose to love, not celebrate with the completion of revenge.

People are people. Sad, ‘unfair’, horrible things happen that boggle my mind and disgust me. Children slaughtered, families broken apart and people murdered horrendously. For whatever plans Bin Laden had that is now ruined I am more happy that I can express. I am very happy though for the closure this is bringing to so many around the world.

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
