And on the heels of everything this week, then hearing about another mass killing in Brownsville, it’s been a day where I have been pretty damn deep in my feels.

The past couple days has been A LOT.  And going about your day, and having any other feelings beyond sadness, grief, and anger can almost feel disrespectful.

But it’s not.  Things still need to get done.  Dinner has to be made, errands run, the bins have to get to the curb.

It’s OK to turn off the news, step away from social media, be annoyed with stupid little things, and happy for good things, and get the dishes done.

You can hold space in your heart for the grief and the anger and still have space for the joy.

It doesn’t mean you don’t care.
