Dear Reds and lovely readers,
I'm going to interrupt our normal schedule of blogging in light of the Charleston church shootings.
Had a really light and fun blog post planned for today — and I can't. Really just can't. My heart is too heavy.
I know I've talked a lot about Miss Edna and how much I and we all miss her — but there are so many horrible things that happened since her death — I'm glad she was at least spared seeing this latest atrocity.
I would like to share one memory I have of her. After the events of 9/11, I recall going to a service with my husband and her. And the preacher spoke about our own light and letting it shine, even in the darkest of times. Especially in the darkest of times.
Please — let's take a moment of silence.
