A year ago today the Boston Marathon was bombed, and as a runner (never mind how long it has been since I've laced up) this tragedy particularly hurts my heart. What an awful thing to work so hard to get to that race only to have something like that happen. My heart goes out to all that where involved.
Today also happens to be a day that holds another tragedy, but one that only effects those in this house. A year ago today, we had to say goodbye to my first baby. He may have been a dog, but he was surely my baby. There are days when I do not think of him, but he is still remembered and will always be.
