As most of you read my post about the tragedy being less than 15 minutes away from my house, and all of you have heard the tragedy all across the news. The tragedy that has been now called “the largest mass shooting in US History” (via CBS News). The tragedy has left most of us with hurt in our hearts for the victims and their families knowing they have a pain in their hearts that most all of us will never understand.
There are so many things that Ty says about Alex that strikes me to the core.
Would they talk about my heart for being a mother? My longing desire?
What about my desire to be there for those around me, not always those deserving, but those who share a part of my heart because it’s the right thing to do?
Would the good that my life has had outweigh the bad?
Would they talk about my love for God, and that although I wasn’t much of an evangelist, I would be there to talk about Him, share my heart for Him?
I have never lived a perfect life, none of us do.
I know this.
I’m not perfect, I never will be, nor will anyone else.
But reading the post about someone else’s life, and the beauty they brought to those around them radiates within me, and stirs my heart.
And makes me want to be an even better person, for those around me.
Because there will always be room for improvement.
