My thoughts always wander as I start to write a post after a blog break... there are travel photos, a book I read & loved, and a huge family reunion we enjoyed over the weekend. Such a great trip! But I'm also thinking of things outside my small world - like the people affected by the Aurora tragedy. It puts into perspective how important each and every day is, how we spend our time and the people we share it with. I'm reminded to put God and others first, because our life (and trivial stuff) is only short-lived. And during that short time, we can do a whole lot of good. Sending out a prayer today for those striving to do good things in the world, whatever they may be.
