What I Wore Wednesday

12.12.2012


{Visiting Santa in front of Macy's at the Clackamas Town Center, a couple of hours before the shooting} 

Before I get to my outfits I would just like to say how crazy yesterday went down. A spontaneous trip to visit Santa at the mall with Jana and our two youngest while our older kids were in school, the same mall I've gone to countless numbers of times, and not 3 hours later mass panic and chaos erupts as a shooter runs in and opens fire, killing two people and injuring others before killing himself. Tragic.

And at OUR mall! I know people that were there, people that were going to be there but either changed their minds or had something else come up, people that were supposed to be there working but instead were home sick. So many could-ofs

I'm not very good with words in serious situations... especially when it comes to heartbreaking, horrific situations. So I'll just say that besides feeling awful for the families of those who lost their lives yesterday and praying for them, I am thankful. Thankful that it didn't happen earlier in the day. Thankful that everyone I know is safe. Thankful that it wasn't way, way worse, because it could have been. 

Thank you, Jesus.
