Sorrow in My Thoughts

I have watched the news over these last few weeks with a heavy heart. I don't know how people can kill children let alone their own. Divorce can be messy and ugly, and very painful, but that doesn't mean you drown your kids in a bath tub and then throw yourself off a bridge. By the way, she lived and the children died. They were 2 1/2 years and 10 months old. Their father is devastated.

Life is Busy...

Well, I am trying to schedule appointments this week, and finding my days all booked up. I have had several people suggest that I cut back on my activities, or more specifically my kid's activities. The truth is we are having fun. Well...more the kids are having fun. I feel good about the things that we are busy doing, and I think it is helping the kids become their best selves, which, I think is my job. So what if my house isn't as clean as I would like it to be, or home renos aren't happening as quickly as I would like. Whoever looks back on their life and wishes that they had dusted more often, or had a few more months with those new windows. But I hope I will remember, and more importantly, that my son will remember what it felt like when I watched his cheer performance last weekend and was just so filled with pride I could have cried. To all those people who say that I am too busy, I say, "Life is busy!"
