It's been a year to the day since the school shooting and the death of all those precious kiddos in Newtown. I know this because I went back to find my Day 14 Joy Alert from last year to copy it, and I have none because on that day it felt dark and desperate and tears just wouldn't stop.

On this day, my joy was breakfast with Mark and out-of-town friends, cookie-baking and decorating with Joel, the prospect of a fancy restaurant date with Mark (this didn't end up happening due to a couple circumstances but still the anticipation of it was nice), and listening to Christmas music a LOT!

And I pray for those families who lost sweet children on that day one year ago!
