Ruined and Restored

Head over to Party of 5 to read Heather's tender and intense reflection "in the wake of the earthquake." 

I have thought about 2 recent heart wrenching life changing moments in my life; the moment my mom died in my arms, the moment I laid eyes on Blueberry...all I can say is this: I hope most of us are ruined by what we witness in Haiti for the rest of our lives - in the most profound and restorative ways!

And like Heather, now I must tend to my classroom full of nervous freshmen, who have finals this week, and who I need to help prepare today so they can be successful tomorrow.

It is so hard to concentrate on anything besides Haiti, isn't it?
