After recent tragic events in Connecticut, I’ve found it hard to focus on work. My mind keeps thinking about those poor little souls in Newtown. I had planned on posting giveaways on Friday morning but skipped them instead to spend time baking with my four year old, even before hearing the news. I’m so glad at that time I didn’t know because I loved my time creating gingerbread cookies with him.
I then had some fun flash giveaways at the beginning of this week in hopes to get people their prizes in time for Christmas. But I just can’t. I can’t will myself to post about giveaways when as a nation we are so deeply heartbroken.
I will start posting them again tomorrow because I still hope to make someone’s holiday just a little brighter but today, today I will refrain from posting anything other than this video of my own little 6 year old. When I see the victims, I see my oldest son who is the same age as most of them were. Yesterday he performed in his very first piano recital and reminded me that there is still joy this holiday season.
Note: His piano instructor informed them that anyone who didn’t bow would get a big sloppy kiss from her, hence my reason for helping him remember to bow before he sat down.
I hope watching it brings a smile to your face.
