Solemn Holy Days

There was a terrible tragedy that occurred in Newtown, CT at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  It is impossible for us to understand what the families and friends of those who were killed as well as the remaining family and friends of the individual who carried out the horrific action are experiencing.

As parents who had difficulties  in carrying a child full term, we can understand a fraction of grief for the loss of children.  By no means does it equate to having had a child in our lives, as we do now, at the level of loss.  We are so very grateful to have a happy and healthy child now and can’t imagine our lives without our daughter.

Our prayers continue to flow upward for healing, peace, and wisdom to change the rampant down slide in our communities that are occurring far to often and are becoming common place.  We don’t have the answers as mental health is a huge part in this particular instance.  There is a disconnect that is taking place, a lack of support, resources, and self control are major factors.  If there was an easy answer we wouldn’t be where we are today, but there isn’t an easy answer there.  Only shock, disbelief, grief, anger, hopelessness, and who knows what else, but likely there is more.

We are in a season of Holy Days right now, for our family also a season of birthday days.  While we are continuing to prepare for those celebrations and will carry them out, there is a such a dark shadow of grief inside of us for those who will not be looking to those Holy Days as days of celebrating.  We can only rely on our faith to carry us through this terrible time.  We are abundantly blessed, beyond belief, that we have so much to celebrate due to the unlikeliness of carrying a child full term and at the same time, we also grieve for those who have lost so much and pray for their recovery in this unconscionable  experience.

The words written are lacking the ability to express the true feelings inside.  The emotional impact, even as far away as California, is too deep to possibly put to words.  In an attempt to find our own peace and healing during this time writing is an outlet.

If you feel so inspired to write then allow yourself to do that, it doesn’t need to be public.

Prayers for healing, peace, and a more meaningful Holy Day season to you all.

Super Moon Saturday!

We have a beautiful sunny day to celebrate today.  Steve is playing at the Livermore Country Wine Festival this afternoon and Sami and I will be cheering him on while he plays.  It should be a joyous and glorious day.  Today we also celebrate Cinco De Mayo, Sami’s kitten turns one year old today and tonight we get to view the Super Moon.

From what I have read, the Moon will be 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons of 2012.

So go out tonight and howl at the moon and enjoy the beauty!

Have a Joyful Day and Night!

Make everyday special

It’s a beautifully sunny day outside today.  We have a rare day together as a family to play, dance, sing and yes do a little work too.  Work can be fun if you priorities are straight and you balance out your time.

So here we are with our introduction to the blog world, don’t be too critical as we are flying a bit without a net.  I must give a great big THANKS to Seth David at Nerd Enterprises for all his sharing of wonderful knowledge to get us started on our venture.  We would not have felt as at ease without your guidance Seth, you ROCK!

Just to give you a little background of us, I, Tina, have had a 20 year career in the Financial Industry in the Information Technology department as well as over 10 years as a Bookkeeper.  My newest adventure was becoming a first time Mom a week shy of my 41st birthday.  (Shush, don’t tell anyone.)

My husband Steve has been a musician for his entire career getting to travel all over the world meeting new people and sharing his musical gifts.  Music is a universal language and to be able to “speak it” is truly a powerful blessing.  Steve is also a fabulous teacher with God given patience, everyone can teach but they aren’t necessarily good at it, Steve is great!  Steve also is a first time Dad as we were blessed by our now 3 year old daughter, Samantha.  We are later life parents and with that comes benefits as well as some challenges, energy being the largest challenge and wisdom being the best benefit.

Thanks for coming by to check us out and read our blog.  If there is a service that you are looking for that we may be able to meet please contact us to discuss what we can provide for you.

Leave us a note to let us know about this post.

Shalom!
