I'm trying so hard to get into the holiday spirit. The tragic events in Newtown have really made me reflect on life. I know once my girls wake up things are going to move quickly and I wanted to take these few quiet moments I have to think about how lucky I am and how grateful I am for all that I have. I know like a lot of people this tragedy tore me apart inside and I am changed forever. As a mother, teacher and just a person in general life is different. I've decided I'm joining in on the 26 acts of kindness a movement started by Ann Curry. I can't think of a better way to honor the beautiful lives that were lost than by spreading kindness.
