#BloggersforSandyHook Tribute

Today bloggers across our country will be posting cookies and crafts in honor of the children lost a week ago at Sandy Hook Elementary.  It is with great honor that I will participate this morning.

As a child, I will always remember my mother’s infamous sweet tooth.  She loves anything with sugar in it, and so, very often, I would come home from school to freshly baked goodies.  She would proudly offer them as a gift to us, but I knew that she was making them as a double blessing for both her children and herself.

My mother’s name is Sandy.

As a family, we understand mental illness, violent tendancies, and fear.  As a Christian, I understand that Jesus Christ is the hope of the world.
