Make the Weekend Meaningful Roundup

I have had a very challenging week. I found out that the sale of my business is not going to be finished by the end of the year. I hit a deer with my car, and I’ve had to work more this week than I have in a  while.

Honestly, though, when I heard about the school shooting in Connecticut yesterday, it was almost to much to wrap my brain around . I have a daughter in kindergarten, and all I could think about was how special she is and how much my heart goes out to the parents of those precious, innocent victims. I’m sure I’ll be back in the swing of things next week, but for right now, Alexa and page rank don’t seem so important. I’m very thankful for all those who read, commented, and shared my posts this week. As for a link list, I’ll just tell everyone to forget reading this weekend and go spend some time with the ones you love.

  1. Thanks for the mention! I can’t imagine being one of the parents or family members of the victims. And especially more tragic during the Christmas season. They have all been in my prayers.
