hello March...

It's the first day of March...and I intended to blog about the fun things we have planned for the month.

But right before I logged in to the blog, I clicked on CNN and watched the story about the high school shootings in Ohio...and listening to the mom of Daniel Parmertor talk about her 16 year old son who was killed in the shootings. I cried...still have tears running down my face...and I am filled with sadness for these families.  Anderson Cooper talked with the mom on the phone as she described her son and told about how excited he was to get his first paycheck from the job he had just started two weeks earlier. She said all he could talk about was what he would spend the paycheck on...maybe an iphone or new skis...and then she said that they will bury the check with her's his check and she wants him to have it...tears again here...and all I want to do right now is hug my two boys...when I send them off to school each day, I assume they will always come back...God Bless the three boys that did not come home that day. And I pray for all those injured...and ALL of the families involved.

  1. Thank you for reminding us about this. It reminded me to not get to busy to mourn these young lives robbed and to pray for their families. Feeling, no matter the side of the spectrum, is a good thing as is praying. It makes me remember how short life is, and how suddenly it can end. If I forget that, then I may miss out on an opportunity to be a better mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend TODAY and every day.
