I'm trying not to watch too much coverage of the explosions in Boston today. While of course my heart goes out to the families affected by what happened, and I want to know what happened, I have no power over any of that.
I can be there for my girls. I can keep doing what I need to do every day to end my day knowing I've done all I can today.
I will, as always, revel in the time I have with friends and family.
I will keep myself informed on what happened, and what I can do to help those harmed.
I will do what I can to take care of myself and my loved ones.
I will not live in fear, but take comfort in the daily routines of living the fullest life I can.
Today, like every day, that's all we can do. Today, like every day, I have to balance the day's events with everything else in life.
I hope you take care of yourself and your loved ones, today and every day. Take care.
