Today is one of those days that I am acutely aware that the world is full of sorrow. While our little family seems to be experiencing an abundance of blessings lately, I am mindful that so many others around us are experiencing unspeakable tragedies and challenges.
Days like these make me feel grossly inadequate to make anyone feel any better. And yet I know from experience that the very worst thing you can do is nothing at all, and so we do what we can.
But as I watch the news about Haiti, and read news of friends who have experienced enormous and incomprehensible loss, and think of all of our family members struggling with illness and cancer, I feel like what we can do is nowhere near enough.
