I can’t find the right words…… But I thing Maria did…….God Bless……..

Maria's Musings

Friday 12-14-12 started as any other day

Dressing for school, hurried breakfasts, hugs, little ones at play

Little beating hearts and chubby hands

And hopefully, we will all pay if forward and extend loving kindness to all who cross our paths. Perhaps if we do, another event such as this will be avoided. Maria says it so well and describes how we all weep for souls set free sooner than we were ready to release them.

  3. hey! thanks for liking my blog. We are almost the same age. I am one year older than you. We should keep in touch. I live in Australia. It’d be good to comment on each other’s blogs from time to time.
