I need to just pause.

This is the second time this year that hearing the lost of another person that just leaves me speechless and so sadden.

I am so use to my morning routine and one being a big part of it is watching the Today Show on NBC, even enjoyed seeing my favorite male artist this morning, Kenny Chesney. Big part of that show (especially during this election year), Mr. Tim Russert.

I'm having a challenging time with this. I'm unsure why it's effecting me so much (as I watch the news in tears). I will admit I'm not savvy in the less with politics, but I relied heavily on his take on what was going on over the past months.

He was a good man and proud son and father. It's more sad that Father's day is 2 days away and his son just graduated from college.

I understand there are other deaths in the news, like those poor boys in Iowa and other sad happenings. Not saying they don't effect either, but it feels so personal when I hear about Tim's death at work.

RIP Tim and god bless your family.


  1. Yes, it is a terrible thing. I truly hate it for his family. He will be missed.

  2. It has affected me, too. I am the same age so I'm sure that has something to do with it. He was so well liked and admired. I feel for his family and friends.
