Happy New Year!!! Since we are only halfway through the first month, surely I'm not too late. I made my "resolutions" for lack of a better word, and am working on my life. So thankful I am so blessed that resolutions are something I can focus on because I don't have to worry about my basic needs. So thankful.
In the recent cold snap...heck, deep freeze!...I gave thanks for a protective and warm shelter, warm electric blanket, and running water when I woke up in the mornings. I'm hoping I don't have frozen pipes this morning as I forgot to leave a faucet dripping! I have yet to figure out how you people in the north survived crazy cold winters and don't have frozen pipes. Baffled. Beyond my comprehension.
Y'all, I started this entry early yesterday morning, having no idea what had happened overnight. Our police officers were ambushed, four sent to the hospital. One barely hanging on to life. I'm not sure why it is settling so heavy on my heart, but it definitely is. I am familiar with two of the officers through my work. Even if i weren't, the images in my mind of the chaos, fear, adrenaline, grief, anger, confusion...the families at home having no clue anything had happened. Or maybe listening to it unfold over a scanner, and feeling so totally helpless. My heart physically hurts for the officers, their family and friends. Please pray for them and especially for officer Doty.
