Be Joyful in Hope

Be joyful in hope

The events of the last couple days have made me take a step back and be thankful for the little things that I take for granted on a day to day basis. With every tragedy we’re reminded of how precious life truly is. It’s a reminder to be more patient, be more kind and find joy in all that exists because life is beautiful. Any spare moment I’ve had I’ve given my husband a hug and told him how much I love him because those words can never be said or heard too often. My thoughts and prayers are with the athletes, the people of Boston and the family and friends of those who’ve been affected by such a despicable act.

    I agree with you – it really puts things into perspective. I still can’t fully wrap my head around what happened. When I lived in Boston for 4 years, ‘Marathon Monday’ was the one day everyone looked forward to the entire year. Supposed to be such a happy, celebratory day. So so horrible. xoxo, Julie

    it’s been a tough few days in boston, that’s for sure. i’m very fortunate that no one i know was hurt, but i am having a hard time grasping what happened here and seeing so many policeman and guards in fatigues all over the city with rifles. i don’t have words.

    I feel really fortunate to not have anyone I know who was injured, but it’s surreal to think that any one of us could have been there and could have been hurt. There have been so many times that we’ve gone to the marathon over the years and so many times we’ve walked those same streets. It’s just so surreal to think about.

    I agree I so appreciate that you took the time to put a post about Boston. It was a tragedy and my thoughts and prayers go out to them I knew someone that was going and who participated in the race, thankfully they were perfectly okay but it really made me value and be extremely thankful for that person and our friendship.

    Again thank you for posting this!
