Now that I have your attention. On my walk yesterday this came up on my playlist. (Don't judge!). And the chorus just hit me hard. For several reasons.
I am always apprehensive about today. There are emotions I don't want to deal with that come to the surface today.
What do those numbers mean? Seems kind of random. What if I told you those numbers are HUGE? (But the one on the left has been bigger.)
I know what you are thinking. There is no joy in this. But in trying times, there is also Joy. Stay with me here. I would like to share the Joy of the last couple of weeks. (seriously!)
Chris Pratt won the "Our Generation Award" at the MTV Movie & TV Awards Monday night.

It's been 7 days since Parkland. I have written, deleted, rewritten and stopped writing this blog several times.
