This event happens every month but is particularly special this month because Sugar and her Mom are generously donating $1 for every post entered in the hop (up to $100) to St Anne’s Center The Lantern House: Pet Area.
But in light of today's tragic events in our neighbor state of Connecticut, I wasn't sure I was going to have anything to offer. My heart is heavy and sadness threatens to overwhelm.
And yet, while it is hard to see beauty on as dark a day as today, there are always glimpses of hope:
From the courageous hearts of the teachers who sheltered the children to the outpouring of condolences and solidarity from people around the world who grieve with the families of a small New England town, there is beauty in the human spirit.
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the shooting in Newtown, CT, tonight.
Here's a beautiful hope:
"Peace on earth... can it be?"
