What. A. Day.

While I seemed to keep pretty busy with little boys and chores around the house, I expected to wind down this evening with today's blog post. Little did I know that my night would be spent sitting in front of the tv following horrendous news footage and texting with friends to confirm the safety of those we know and love. Needless to say, my priorities changed... 

If you have yet to hear, there were tragic events that took place at the historic Boston Marthon today. Living outside the city, we're far enough away to be safe, but close enough to feel the effects of what's happening there. People we know are there, were there at the time, and living in this state makes us Boston proud any day, not just today. But in all the chaos throughout this day and all the coverage and photos and videos that have come out of it all, there was one thing that gave me comfort in all of this. The way the people come together. Just as with other tragedies that have happened along the way, you will always see those people helping one another. Thanks to my friends, Cathia and Eimear, for sharing about this today and reminding us to find that little bit of hope for Boston in this sad time. While we send our thoughts and prayers to all those affected today, we also send thanks and support to the 'helpers'. 

Thoughts and Prayers to Boston
