Today was a tragic one for the people of Paris. My thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this vicious act.
I must be honest, however. While I know that this has happened, I do not know the details. I’ve not watched the news or read the articles. I will, I promise. But I simply have not done so yet. I was out a good portion of the day so, we’d heard about what happened, but no details. I will get those details.
But not today.
Tomorrow is the memorial service for Sandra Moran. I don’t want to go. Don’t get me wrong, I want to honor my friend’s life and celebrate who she was and how she lived. But I don’t want to go. Because tomorrow, it becomes real.
Tonight we will sleep if we can…this last night before we have to say our goodbyes. Tomorrow we will gather with so very many who have loved Sandra throughout her life. Sunday we will go back to our homes.
Life will continue.
But it is changed.
It is forever changed.
