As I write this, the Boston Police Department, with federal support, are going house to house, searching for the second suspect in this week’s terror attacks. As with all of these events, we are shocked, frightened, saddened.
Watching the news on the treadmill this morning, I was watching CNN interview a young couple who’d been evacuated by police during the search process. Given no more than 2-3 minutes, they were asked to leave their home, dog and baby in arms, with no idea of how long they would be gone. I immediately thought of what I would grab: my loved ones obviously, my laptop and phone since they are key tools in making my living. My old and sickly, but beloved, cat Booger. Everything else can be replaced.
I can’t help looking around our home and being so appreciative of what we have. But the things that really matter in my home aren’t bought from Pottery Barn, or Fab’rik, or Container Store. I’m betting you feel the same way.
Hold your loved ones close.
