So i’m sitting here trying to think of a way to delicately bring up the topic of the Sandy Hook tragedy before talking about decorating a table at my work Christmas Party.
How do you “bring up” a topic if children & adults losing their lives?
How can you hear anything about this chaos and not sob?
We had just gotten back to the office from our Christmas Party (i had been gone setting up since 930 that morning so i was completely out of touch until almost 4pm) and i trolled FB to see all of these “My heart goes out to Sandy Hook…” Who is Sandy Hook?!
I opened up an internet news browser and was completely shattered.
I sat at my desk and literally sobbed.
How could someone be so callous to do something so absolutely heartless?
I don’t think i can adiquately put into words how absolutely broken i felt within that moment. I was broken for the loss of the beautiful children and the adults who tried to protect them. I was broken for the parents hearing that they will never see their babies again. I was broken for the family of this troubled young man who committed these horrible actions. I was broken for the community.
I was broken for those who died without knowing Jesus.
I was just broken.
I went home where i found myself watching more news and continued to cry.
I know this has been said many, many times over the last few days; but my prayers are with everyone who has been touched by this tragedy.

I’m feeling much better today.
I still sound like a man…which is always exciting…but i no longer feel like hugging the toilet every 5 minutes. IN FACT me and that thing are no longer BFF’s.
So thank you for all of your well-wishes they have done their job!
. . .
Now onto the more fun topics.
This year i was in charge of decorating the table for our Christmas Luncheon at work.
Whatwhat, talk about pressure.
I came up with a few ideas in my head and pulled down almost ALL of the Christmas Decorations from our closet and we loaded it all up and went to the venue to set up.
Here is the finished product…be nice please ha.
. . .
So there you have it, my first attempt at decorating a FREAKING HUGE table!
I will do my best to catch up with all of my missed blog reading in the next few days! I’ve
stalking missed reading your lives! <3 y’all…seriously.
