Listening to Christmas music.
Looking forward to my double date that evening.
Thought I would check in on what my messages on facebook.
That's when I heard.
Families living a nightmare.
And since then I have been struggling to wrap my head around the pain of parents going to bed without their babies.
That, and the 26,000 kids who die every day. From preventable illnesses.
How do we go on with so much Evil in the world?
We conquer it by siding with the God of Love.
So this weekend we focused on good. Doing good. Loving on our children.
Simple moments, like a dog waiting for his girls to come through that door after school
Laughed with our friends
Reveled in the silliness of my little boy
Held my kindergartener a little longer and tighter
