I'm joining bloggers across the country today to pause and remember Charlotte Bacon, Daniel Barden, Olivia Engel, Josephine Gay, Ana Marquez-Greene, Dylan Hockley, Madeleine Hsu, Catherine Hubbard, Chase Kowalski, Jesse Lewis, James Mattioli, Grace McDonnell, Emilie Parker, Jack Pinto, Noah Pozner, Caroline Previdi, Jessica Rekos, Avielle Richman, Benjamin Wheeler, Allison N Wyatt, Rachel Davino, Dawn Hochsprung, Nancy Lanza, Anne Marie Murphy, Lauren Rousseau, Mary Sherlach and Victoria Soto. 

Please join me in taking some extra time to ponder the small ways we can each bring more peace into the world, during such a sorrowful time. 

We hold our children's hands for awhile, but their hearts forever.

  3. If anyone would like to cross stitch a block to honor one or more of the victims from Newtown, there is a group on Facebook called Xstitch for those impacted by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. I'm sure they could use as many stitchers as possible for this endeavor, whether you can stitch one square or more. Details on the size and color fabric and sign ups for each individual child and school employee's quilt can be found at the Facebook group. Thanks to anyone who can help out. The link to the Facebook page is

  4. Hello, I live in Canada and when I heard what happened at that school, my heart broke for all those babies who died. And sorrow for the teacher who lost their lives too. All my prayers are with the people of Newton who have to pick up the pieces of their lives and go on without the sweet babies they lost. God Bless All of You. Lynda
