You Can’t Plan for the Unexpected
You know, I seriously planned on writing more than one post this weekend.
I planned on talking about all the fun things I did this week that distracted me from the fact that it wasn’t the weekend.
I planned on talking about the Rockies game I went to, the birthday dinner I had, the 300 Joey bowled, the two awesome runs I went on and the amazing slice of red velvet cake I had.
I did not plan on rain during the Rockies game. Or having a horrible work week. Or being too tired, busy or stressed out to sit down and write out a decent post. Or waking up on Friday morning to news of a shooting that left 12 dead and lots more injured, terrified and devastated in my home state.
And it’s a completely unpleasant reminder that unexpected things happen everyday. You can’t plan for news of heart attacks or wildfires or mass shootings. It makes it that much harder to understand, accept and react. And it makes a little rain and some work-related stress seem so unimportant in comparison.
My heart goes out to anyone and everyone affected by the theater shooting. Hoping no matter where you live, you do the same this weekend.
