If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that it's been a tough week. I have needed some time away to take care of my son and join in helping our small community begin the process of healing.
I would like to thank all of you for leaving such kind comments here, and for the text messages and emails I've received from so many of my blogging friends. I have read them all and am so touched by your kindness and support.
I wanted to share some of the amazing pictures that have been taken here in the last week. The rainbow above appeared over Marysville Pilchuck High School on Saturday. This one shone over the school yesterday.
I'm reminded of the lyrics in a song by The Band Perry, called "If I Die Young":
Lord, make me a rainbow, I'll shine down on my mother,
She'll know I'm safe with you when she stands under my colors.
These clouds floated above the school on Monday.
Finally, this is the picture that was taken at T's high school and shared with their friends at MP. Pictures like this have been coming in from all around the country, and it has been such a comfort to the community.
Today my son laughed for the first time in almost a week. It was a wonderful sound, and made me realize that it's time for me to get back to writing. I'll have a new post up tomorrow, linking with my Lifestyle Sistas for "5 Things I Miss About My Teens". I chose this topic, and it will be fun to see what everyone loved best about their teen years. Scott Baio will make an appearance on my list!
But for today....thank you.
