We woke up this morning to the most horrific news of the lives lost in Las Vegas. It was a gut wrenching slap in the face at 6 am that I am sure many of you felt as well. Being the super sensitive soul that I am I immediately shed tears, said a prayer, and started to try and piece together how I was going to navigate this horrible day without being completely consumed with grief. I knew I needed a plan otherwise I would be staring at my tv in shock all day waiting for updates, feeling even worse than I already did.
I threw on my favorite t-shirt and decided that I would spend my day in the kitchen, immersed in comforting recipes, surrounded by my favorite music while I tried to come to terms with the senseless loss of life that happened last night.
That favorite t-shirt and my go-to comforting playlist that blares through my headphones every single day both bear Tom Petty's name. I have listened to his voice through every significant event of my life as far back as I can remember. The good, the bad, and the really ugly parts all have a little sound byte in my brain with his voice attached to them. Just when I thought today couldn’t get any darker I received a phone call from @futouristo that Tom Petty passed away last night too. The tears I had been somehow holding back all day just won’t stop now... The world lost so many precious souls yesterday and I don’t know how we can ever feel normal again. Hug the ones you love friends, don’t waste another second, hug them tight, sing a song, say a prayer because we could all use a little comforting right now.
