Hold Tight.

I bet all the mama's and daddy's in Connecticut have pictures like this with their babies that they'll cherish forever. They'll look at them over and over and they'll become wrinkly and worn out and torn and tear stained and creased and faded.  They'll take their breath away.  

And tonight....this one of Georgia and I takes my breath away.  Because she's sleeping upstairs right now in her bed.  Safe.  Alive.  And days like today remind me not to take that for granted.  For a second.  

Hold your kids tight.  Really tight.  Nothing is more important than them.  

Thoughts and prayers, so many of them, to the families of Newtown.  

An unspeakable tragedy. 


  1. I'm not sure that I've ever held my two boys tighter. My heart is physically aching.

  2. This whole thing is so sad. I'm trying not to even think about it because it's just..ugh. Definitely makes me grateful though for everything that I have.

    That picture is amazing by the way.

  3. Beautiful photo, beautiful sentiment.

  4. Such devastating news indeed. Made me appreciate my family and my (furry) kids more...

    Happy SITS Day! :)
