life is precious

In my heart I felt called to do an illustration honoring the children of Sandy Hook.  It helped to envision them being welcomed into their safe new home, and in the tiniest way, has brought some comfort over the last few days.  While I still ache for the grieving families in Connecticut, I mostly feel thankful that I can spend this time with the people I love, celebrating with Liam on his first Christmas.  And even though it should be the reality of every moment of every day, life has never seemed more precious than now. lifeisprecious
