Thankful Thursday: Safety and Compassion

In light of Sunday night’s horrific act of terror executed in Las Vegas, I’m obviously very thankful that myself and my loved ones are safe and (relatively) well. I have friends who lost people in that shooting and it’s a heart-wrenching situation. Nonetheless, I’m grateful that, at least this time, I am personally outside the bubble of those directly affected by such a pointless, heartbreaking tragedy.

I know that I may not always be so lucky, so I’m also grateful for the reminder to let the people I care about know that I love them.

I’m also thankful to see so many people looking at this nightmare and responding with positivity, love, and compassion. The Go Fund Me page to benefit victims and families hit its $100,000 goal in a matter of hours, was upped to $2mil, and that was surpassed only twelve hours after the page was created. I’m not entirely sure what the tally has hit at this point, but it’s amazing to see so many people selflessly contributing to aid those affected.

If you’re in the Las Vegas area, I urge you to donate blood if you can. No doubt they could use it to continue treating those still needing care and to replenish what they’ve used so far.

I love you all.

Monday Musings: I'm so Damn Tired.

I’m in a great deal of physical pain, at the moment, thanks to a pinched nerve in my shoulder and a tight muscle in my back that makes my entire right arm feel like it’s in a vice grip. I should start doing yoga.

I’m also in an extreme amount of emotional distress waking up and heard about Las Vegas. A friend of mine lost a friend. Other friends are still waiting to hear back about loved ones. My brother and his wife lived in Vegas for many years and her mother still lives there. I’ve never started crying so quickly after waking up. Continue reading “Monday Musings: I'm so Damn Tired.”
