Hugging A little More Today

I am going to be hugging these 2 little people extra hard today,
because life is short, sweet and very uncertain.
My heart is breaking over the tragedy in Connecticut. I really am speechless.
So for now, I am going to hug my babies extra, extra hard and long today.
I am going to listen extra hard to their little voices
and hold their tiny hands until they won't let me anymore.
For there are some mommies that will never get that chance, ever, again.
* This photo was taken on the beach in Bay Head, NJ  last St. Patrick's Day -
We didn't realize when we sat there - how lucky we were. The beach and the surrounding dunes were completely washed away during Hurricane Sandy-
It's moments like these that need to be treasured and shared often.
Life is truly precious.
So go hug that someone you love! 
Take a little bit more time to really enjoy your life
Because, at any moment, it can all be washed away.
