A bad news day....

This morning I heard the news that there had been two arrests in the Tori Stafford case. (The little girl who has been missing from Woodstock for a gut-wrenching 6 weeks). I knew this probably wasn't a good sign and felt a bit sad, but went about my day. When I was driving home from work today however, I heard the news story in a bit more detail. They said a man had been arrested for first degree murder and abduction and a woman for abduction and accessory after the fact (I think). Then the newscaster said the words that just set me off. The police had said, "We will not stop until we find Tori's body." Body. That hit me like a ton of bricks. Tears just started streaming down my face and all I wanted to do was get home as fast as I could and hug my children so tightly.

I hope you're resting in peace, Tori. And I pray for the family, especially Tori's big brother and hope he can get over the guilt of not walking her home from school that day. I can't even imagine....

Hold your dear ones close. And thank God, or the Universe, or whatever higher power, that you and your family are not the ones making headlines... Not like this.

I'm off to hugs my kids one more time before they fall asleep.
