Making Sense

I was hesitant about mentioning this here, but I feel like this little blog of mine is a documentation of my life-- and that means every part of it.

Things are a little more serious on the blog today. I had every intention of writing a post about a spontaneous 24 hours in which my dad and I visited with family in West Virginia, but I was sadly given the news of the loss of a dear friend that has altered my plans, thoughts and being. Its in our nature as humans to find answers, to understand, but I find it so terribly difficult to digest and make sense of such a tragedy. I feel like its virtually impossible for a human brain and heart to fully grasp the concept of these recent events, and am now leaning on my family, friends and heavenly Father more than ever for the strength to carry on. Things are eerily quiet in this small little town of ours today, as it is a time of reflection, a time of celebration for one's life, and a time of mourning for it passing. All we can do for now is breathe, just breathe, and take one step at a time.
