A letter to the families at Sandy Hook

Posted on 30. Dec, 2012 in Uncategorized

To the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy,

I watched this tragedy unfold on the news for hours. I was frozen in my spot! I could not believe what was happening. I refused to even acknowledge the deaths of these babies.  I know I cannot saw anything to help ease the pain.  No matter what anyone says or does, no one will ever be able to feel or comprehend the grief, sadness, pain, anger and frustration that you are going through during this terrible time.

I have thought about you every day. Every day, I hug and kiss my babies a little tighter. I watched your agony during the funeral services. I thought of you on Christmas Eve as I sat in my living room with my tree getting ready for “Santa”. I thought of you on Christmas morning after all was unwrapped and the gifts were all about. I thought of you at the dinner table and that empty seat. I thought of you while I was sick in bed, I could take medication to ease my symptoms. I know there is nothing to ease yours.

The entire country is in mourning and so many of us would do anything to take away some of your incomprehensible sorrow.   I  feel so incredibly helpless, angry, sad, frustrated and at a loss for you.

You are constantly in our hearts and thoughts during this difficult holiday season. We send you our love and support today, tomorrow and for as long as you need us.

I am so sorry for your tragic loss.

Love,
RockIt Mom and all our friends and followers.

A Winter Wonderland on Your Windows Wherever You Live

Decorating for a Winter Wonderland on a Budget.

To “frost” your windows for the holiday season, mix 1 tablespoon of Epsom salt and 1 cup of beer and then brush on the window and let dry.  It will wash clean with amonia when the holidays are over. If your windows are tinted, do not attempt this decorating idea. Better off to spray the outside with “canned snow” from your local craft store.
