Colorado Springs Real Estate Facts & Fun


Someone Needs A Prayer Today

I came home from almost the perfect day showing land in Colorado.  The sky was a brilliant blue, the land could not have shown better.  Meadows, pondarosa pines, pond(s), views and a fabulous no coat needed December kind of day.  Lighthearted, fun and just a great day to be outside.


I came home and read about the NY Police violent shootings earlier today.  I went numb, my heart feels broken and aches. I tried 3 times to type a note on a friends Facebook page.  I finally just went still.  Music has always been a great healer for me.  


I always remember when I don't know what to do -- pray.  Today was one of those days.   


I love a song titled "Someone Needs a Prayer Today".  It's time to take a moment or an hour or a day and just pray for the officers, their families, co-workers and anyone affected by this tragedy today.  Tragedy is a reminder of how fragile life is and I want so much to make it "this happens in some other country or some other world".  Not today, this is our country and our backyard.  The intent of this post is not to create a forum for hate but more about what to do when you just don't know what to do.
