Project 366: Day 348 Light

Standard

My heart goes out to the families directly affected by the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In addition to those families, my heart goes out to the countless other families directly affected by violence that don’t appear in the headlines, become a trending topic on Twitter, or become a photo made viral via Facebook.

Project 366: Day 336 Whatcha’ doing?

Standard

Joe had a friend spend the night with him last night. This morning, I loaded up the boys and took them to Dutch Monkey Doughnuts (DMD). DMD is a fantastic doughnut place, with a different selection of wonderfully delicious doughnuts every Tuesday – Sunday.

I have no actual doughnuts to share with you, nor do I have any pictures of doughnuts to share with you. Instead, I’m letting you see the fascination the boys had in the making of the doughnuts. The picture includes my boys, Joe’s friend, and two other friends (brothers) who met us for some tasty doughnuts.

Though many (buckets of) tears will be shed, laughter will be heard, memories will be shared, and comfort will be provided through family, friends, and faith.
