Day 103: Gather

It’s another short post for me tonight, in part because of the hour (we are just now getting back in the house after our long drive back to Atlanta), but also to acknowledge how inadequate my words are at this moment.

We learned of a major tragedy that struck a family we know in our home town. Our community is reeling. At the same time, our neighbors have pulled together in a way that is truly inspiring, raising nearly $24,000 in less that 24 hours.

We were out of town when we heard the news. All day I’ve wanted to gather my family into me, hug them and tell them how much I love them, and how I never want to take any of them for granted.

That’s what I’ve tried to make as my first priority today.

And it’s what my first priority should be every day.
