Heavy Heart

My heart is heavy and full of sadness tonight. I find myself just walking around my house not knowing what to do. Jessica called this afternoon with the news that a young friend of hers had been killed in a shooting. We've known this young man since before he and Jessica started school so many years ago. He and his brother in and out of our house numerous times as Matt and Jess were in and out of thiers. His older brother was two years older than he, like Matt and Jess, and he and Matt were friends as well... running around together for years. My heart breaks for the life lost, for the pain that I know his mother is feeling. She has always been such a good mother and loves her children with all that she has. I pray that peace be with them all as they try to make sense of this tragedy.

As promised... more pictures from the blizzard. Yes we did get more snow today. I do believe my husband moved me north without telling me.

This is what our little town looks like all over... piles and piles of snow everywhere.. on every corner... in the middle of the blocks...

See how high the snow drifts were. And this was 3 days after the snow fell.

On the way to Joy, Tx. Cars off buried in the snow all up and down the roads.

So glad I am not a cow. How on earth can they be warm?

This picture is peaceful and pretty. I like the way the snow looks on the trees.

Were I went to school at so many years ago. K-12th grades...right in this one building. Of course it really used to be a red brick school house, but the look was changed after the tornado did some damage to it.

Remember to hug those you love.

Hugs and prayers to you and your family Lisa.
Love your snowy pictures. There's something peaceful about snow-covered fields.
Stay warm, take time to heal....and don't miss the chance to play in the snow.
