In the wake of last week's tragedy in Connecticut, I'm left with a sad and heavy heart. It shook me to the core, and I have to admit, I spent much of this past weekend scouring the news on my phone, looking for any information that might shed light on such a senseless act. But tonight I stopped.
I realized that as a parent with a toddler who has absolutely no idea what happened, the best thing I can do is to teach her about faith. Faith in God, faith in love and kindness. Faith in humanity. How to be open-minded and empathetic. The best gift my mom gave me was faith. She taught me to how to nourish my own relationship with God by example--nothing forced.
On the eve of Christmas, what better time to highlight the concept of faith.
Little Mama and I will be talking about the true meaning of Christmas. All religions, all beliefs welcome. It's time to pray for peace on earth and goodwill to all.
