Feels Absurd...

To go from posting about pillows to this but I just finished this article and I'm going to do it anyway. To lose a child EVER is unnatural and nothing short of excruciating to even consider. To only be allowed to have one and lose him or her in such a devastating way is unimaginable to me. God, their poor parents.

In the last two weeks, between Myanmar and China, at least 150,000 people have been killed by natural disasters or the aftermath. I feel cheap even using that many adjectives. The point is that I'm blown away. Everyone is. If you can do nothing else, take a second to say thank you for what you've got.

It's unthinkable. I'm not even sure how to process it, or how to go on with normal life with all this stuff going on everywhere else.

You're so right...it just feels absurd.

Lately, it really feels like the world is going to hell in a hand basket, doesn't it? Horrifying.

everytime i've opened my internet explorer the past few days, there's been some picture of the tragedy and my heart can't stop feeling like it's absolutely breaking.

it's almost impossible to wrap one's mind around.

but your post is right on point.

Very true what you said. It is like things are just falling apart. Makes me fear that IF I do ever get to have children this world will just be horrible beyond belief for them.

Well said. I can't even imagine.
