A Heavy Heart
Tax Season (TS13) is officially over. I'm exhausted and my brain is mush. My "good" sewing machine is back from the repair shop. I should be celebrating -- or sleeping in.
But the horrific bombings in Boston have left me with a heavy heart.
My brother qualified for the Boston Marathon for three or more years after he turned 40. My kids have been spectators. I thank God that they were not there this year to witness the carnage.
Although it is Shameless Commerce Tuesday, I have decided not to display cheery Spring items. Instead, I will share with you this patriotic bunting.
Americans will not be paralyzed by fear.
We will not be silenced by bombs or box cutters or threats or random acts of unspeakable violence.
Terrorists will NEVER defeat us.
God Bless America!
