I normally reserve this caliber of sordidness for Thursday’s Throat Punch post but , I have to say, the news this morning is so fraught with most parents’ worst nightmares that I had to share. It frightens me that this is the sort of people that are walking around free in the world. It makes me fearful for our children. As a mother, it makes helicopter parenting not seem so crazy and maybe even necessary in the world we live in. After watching these, hug your children a little tighter and take a few more deep breaths. Remember how you felt the first moment that you held that baby in your arms and the silent promise you whispered to never let anything harm them. Then, take a minute to thank God that you are not the parents in any of these stories.
And since I shared such awful goings ons in the world, go here for some positivity. Kelle always spins me right round round like a record baby. When the world has thrown a hefty dose of dread on my plate, I go read Kelle for inspiration and a reminder of how great a place the world can truly be! Thank you Kelle for helping me remember to Enjoy the Small Things
